Absolutely it is. The coughing and mucus associated with Bronchial pneumonia is an excellent way to spread the bacteria or viruses that are causing it either through the air or on surfaces around the effected person. Make sure that you wash your hands and clean the area frequently and do not touch your hands to your nose, mouth or eyes.
