Whooping Cough A Disease With Deadly Complications
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
As a medical researcher I enjoy topics that deal with the history of a virus or disease. I'm intrigued to learn that whooping cough's origin is fungoid. Whooping cough is often overlooked by parents who believe their child has only a common cold. If untreated the youth is soon assailed by paroxysms of coughing. Weakness follows which can lead to bronchopneumonia among various severe complications.
