Across the world, viral pneumonia cases account for around one-third of the total pneumonia cases. In 2014, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) ranked pneumonia combined with the flu as the 8th leading cause of death in the United States. High adoption of Viral Pneumonia Treatment by patients as well as healthcare personnel will propel market growth during the forecast period.
