  • It is not different. One of the complications of the flu is pneumonia.

  • Pneumonic flu or plague as some call it isn't spread the same and affects the lungs every time unlike the flu. Its very serious if it is the true pneumonic plague. Not everyone has lung problems with the flu. Some don't even do much coughing. Pneumonic flu doesn't spread as much when someone coughs or sneezes. Probably why they had problems in China. The heavy population.
