The top search term this week is not surprising to anyone paying attention to politics. Former Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia after she fell ill during a 9/11 memorial. Although healthcare professionals are more than familiar with the condition, searches spiked as the general public continues to ask clinicians and others questions about the severity and causes of pneumonia. Few things can cause a surge in search popularity as strong as someone with Clinton's profile bringing attention to a condition.
