What increases my risk for viral lung infection?

Viral lung infection is a contagious disease. This means you can get viral lung infections from others who have the disease. For this reason, your risk of getting viral lung infections is increased when you're around sick people, those who have viral lung infections and upper respiratory infections, like colds. You're even more at risk if you touch an infected person or get very close to a person with the disease. Finally, not taking care to wash your hands can put you at serious risk of getting a viral lung infection. When you wash your hands, you can get rid of germs that you may have contracted from touching someone or something infected with a viral lung infection.
