How to treat pneumonia and influenza: These are the seven steps to prevent the deadly pandemic and help prevent the spread of infection, according to a new study.
The study by the Australian National University (ANU) and the University of Queensland (UQ) examined data from the Health Australia National Surveillance Database (HANSS), a database that collects data on the number of influenza cases, influenza-related hospital admissions, deaths and hospitalizations for each country in the world.
The data included more than 16 million people who were aged 10 years or older in Australia in 2011.
The researchers found that for every 100,000 people who are aged 10 to 59, there were around 1.5 million people aged 60 to 74 who were infected with influenza.
For every 100 million people over the age of 60, there are 2.3 million people between the ages of 60 and 79.
The authors noted that the prevalence of pneumonia and the pandemic has been declining in Australia, and that this is due to more people being vaccinated.
“Pneumonia is not a new problem in Australia,” Dr Andrew Brown, the lead author of the study and a researcher in the ANU’s Centre for Infectious Diseases, told the BBC.
“It was a pandemic in the early 2000s, and we’ve seen a reduction in cases.
We don’t have as many cases as we had in the mid-2000s, but we do have more deaths.
We have less hospital admissions but we still have more hospitalisations than any other country.”
In the study, the researchers found an overall increase in pneumonia and respiratory illness cases in Australia from 2010 to 2015.
However, the study also found that the number and type of cases varied between different regions of Australia.
“Our findings highlight the importance of monitoring and the need for an ongoing focus on reducing the spread,” Dr Brown said.
The ANU researchers also found the proportion of cases occurring in the hospital rose by 9.6% between 2010 and 2015, compared with a decrease of 1.9% between 1990 and 2008.
“The increase in the number or incidence of respiratory illness has increased in the past decade in Australia compared with other countries,” Dr Pauline LeBlanc, the senior author of a paper on the study who also works in the Australian Department of Health, said.
Dr Brown said that more people needed to be vaccinated, particularly in rural areas where there is an increased incidence of the disease.
“As we are seeing more people getting vaccinated, we need to do a better job of getting those vaccinated, as well as the communities that are at risk,” Dr LeBlan said.
“So there’s a lot more that needs to be done in terms of making sure we are able to keep a healthy population.”
The researchers noted that there is a large disparity in the prevalence between the two countries.
In 2010, the median age in Australia was 44, compared to 41 for the United States.
The findings are published in the journal PLoS One.
