New research reveals how people in china are dying of pneumonia – NYT

New research by a Harvard University epidemiologist has found that the country’s air pollution is leading to an epidemic of pneumonia in Beijing and other Chinese cities, with the virus being a major contributor.

The study, published in the journal Public Health, found that as of late March, there were at least 100 cases of pneumonia reported in Beijing, nearly two-thirds of which were linked to the city’s air.

It found that between September 2013 and February 2016, there was a doubling in the number of cases in Beijing as people migrated to the capital, according to the report.

The report comes as the health ministry has said that the number one cause of pneumonia deaths in China is pollution, and a separate study by the Xinhua news agency said that over the last year, the number had increased dramatically.

The CDC reported in July that Beijing’s air quality was among the worst in the world, with more than 70 percent of people exposed to particulate matter exceeding the WHO’s safe level of 25 micrograms per cubic meter.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the average annual exposure to PM10 is 2.7 times higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guideline for PM2.5, or smaller particles, of 0.2 microgram per cubic meters.

However, the WHO guidelines are designed to be used by people who are at greater risk for respiratory illnesses.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a safe level for PM10 of 50 microgram to 1.5 microgram for children under 6 years old and 40 microgram and above for adults.

The WHO also recommends a limit of 5 microgram of PM2 to 1 milligram for adults and 30 microgram or above for children.

China is known as one of the top polluters in the World, with its pollution levels and health impact exceeding those of some developed countries.

Its economy has been growing faster than the rest of the world for decades and has benefited from China’s booming economy.

But in recent years, it has been struggling to cope with a severe air pollution crisis.

China has been facing widespread public anger and protests over air pollution, including pollution of the city of Shanghai, where thousands have died in the past year.
