Lighting a fire to cook a meal 🍳, light a home 🛋️, heat a room 🌡️.

For billions of people, these simple daily acts can turn the household into a dangerous place.

Exposure to household #AirPollution produced kills 3.8 million people each year.

@WHOSEARO @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @naokoy21 @DrMariaNeira @UN Over 3 billion people use polluting fuels & devices: wood, coal & dung in simple stoves for their daily cooking. The resulting household #AirPollution is the 🌏’s single greatest environmental health risk.
Most of these people are poor, & live in low- & middle-income countries.
@WHOSEARO @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @naokoy21 @DrMariaNeira @UN These cooking practices are inefficient, and use fuels and technologies that produce high levels of household #AirPollution with a range of health-damaging pollutants, including small soot particles that penetrate deep into the lungs.

Bolsonaro está com pneumonia sendo que já estava tomando antibiótico por conta da cirurgia. A chance de ser uma bactéria resistente é real #pneumonia #Bolsonaro
Considerando que ele estava tomando amoxicilina, o que foi relatado, a bactéria do pulmão provavelmente é produtora de beta-lactamase, uma enzima que degrada a estrutura antibiótica da amoxicilina.
Neste caso, seria necessário combinar amoxicilina com outro antibiótico ou com um inibidor de beta-lactamase produzido pela bactéria, tipo Clavulanato ou uma cefalosporina de 4a geração.

VIDEO Update: These limited-hangout 'polio-like #AFM mystery illness' stories are going to burst. Look at these damaged children. With CNN's Elizabeth Cohen of #CDCWhistleblower #Vaxxed fame: 'if your child has a drooping face'...
