Can viral lung infection be prevented?

You can actually prevent viral lung infections quite effectively by exercising care around those who are infected. Try not to get too close to an infected child or adult. If you have to be around someone who has an infection, wash your hands often, and try to avoid touching the person's mucous. You can also help others to stay healthy by not going out if you have an infection. Keep your children home from school until they recover.
