What causes pneumonia?

Pneumonia is typically caused by a virus or bacteria you have been exposed to in the environment or is passed to you from another person.

Infection can be passed between people from direct contact (usually the hands) or inhaling droplets in the air from coughing or sneezing.

Sometimes 
a person who has a viral infection, such as influenza virus, will develop a secondary infection from bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus while they are sick.

Pneumonia more rarely can be caused by a parasite, fungus or yeast.

Aspiration pneumonia is caused by a foreign material, usually food or vomit getting into the lungs from the throat, which irritates the airways and lung tissue and increases chances of a bacterial infection.
