EDITOR — Thank you for your article on pneumonia, which was published on Monday. It was very informative. These days, when one takes a child to a clinic, they are only tested for malaria. And whether or not the test is positive, health workers treat malaria.

Unfortunately, many parents are not well-informed to request for tests that may reveal other illnesses. More so, only experienced paediatricians are able to detect lung infections in children.

Health workers also need to be trained to be more investigative in their examination of sick children.
