Pertussis (Whooping Cough) is a disease whose concomitance with Coronavirus could greatly increase Coronavirus consequences. The presence of Pertussis together with Coronavirus infection would determine a condition with a higher risk of mortality. DR BRACCO PROTOCOL: 1) Do Pertussis serology for all people having a positive Coronavirus buffer and if this serology is positive, treat the Pertussis immediately. 2) For Preventive Medicine (4P Medicine): vaccinate the over 65 population for Pertussis to avoid complications in the event of a possible Coronavirus infection.
