Feature article: pneumococcal disease
Pneumococcal disease is a bacterial infection that produces a range of symptoms, from minor to very serious. Some strains of the bacteria are likely to cause infections in particular parts of the body more than others, such as the sinuses (sinusitis) and the ear (middle ear infection). The bacteria can spread to other body parts causing pneumonia and invasive pneumococcal disease, including blood infection and meningitis.
