Brief Answer: Yes. Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. Yes friend , it can be contagious via coughing out droplets of mucous produced. So , close contacts should take precautionary measures. Also , it is required that a person who has Viral Pneumonia should be isolated ideally as far as possible. If not possible to isolate , he/she can cover her mouth and nose via a mask. And should receive an appropriate treatment. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
