On Labor Day, in the middle of a Cleveland campaign rally, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton paused to fight back a cough. She sipped from a glass of water, turned from her microphone and then shrugged the spell off. Every time I think about Trump, Clinton said, I get allergic.

.

If only stump speech quips could defeat microbes. Six days after the Ohio rally, traveling from a Sept. 11 memorial service held in New York, Clinton lost her balance and had to be helped into a waiting van. Passersby caught the stumble on video and forced the campaign to come clean: Clinton had fallen ill. A few days before, it turned out, a physician diagnosed the 68-year-old candidate with pneumonia.

.

Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies, Clintons physician Lisa R. Bardack said in a statement, as The Washington Post reported Sunday. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this mornings event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely. Clinton canceled a planned trip to California.

.

Although Bardack said her patient was on the way to recovery, the diagnosis of pneumonia may have left some voters wonderingL Isnt pneumonia, after all, a serious health concern?

.

The short answer, at the moment, based on the limited available information about Clintons case and viewed independently of any unknown other health issues she may or may not face, is no.

.

At this point, there is no reason to believe that Secretary Clinton will be disabled by pneumonia, American Lung Association scientific adviser Norman H. Edelman told The Washington Post by phone Sundaynight.

Summary
Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause pneumonia. You can also get pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

Have a high fever
Have shaking chills
Have a cough with phlegm that doesn’t improve or gets worse
Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu
Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.
