The countdown to World Pneumonia Day kicked off in Korea, with a mass flash mob event for public support.
On 9th of November students gathered in the cities of Seoul, Pusan, and Cheonju. For three hours, they marched through the streets cheerfully, shouting, “Please give a Hi-five for children!”. The students wore blue face paint and jumpsuits, the official colour of World Pneumonia Day.
