In brief: Maybe,maybe not

Since some are triggered by viruses, it is certainly possible.
However, the creator of the "Muppets" died rather suddenly of a treatable pneumococcal pneumonia that he ignored in its earliest stages. Makes one consider the possibilities.

In brief: Maybe

It is possible, not everyone died of pneumonia in the pre antibiotic era, but it is not wise to do this if you have a choice.
Anyone who thinks they may have pneumonia should seek prompt medical attention to avoid serious complications.
