Walkin’ pneumonia

Does Hillary Clinton really have pneumonia? I hadn’t questioned the claim until I saw the clip below.

It shows Clinton embracing a small girl immediately after leaving Chelsea Clinton’s apartment. Isn’t pneumonia a contagious disease? Walking pneumonia is.

According to WebMD, the contagious period in most cases lasts less than 10 days. Moreover, researchers think it takes prolonged close contact with an infected person to transmit walking pneumonia.

Even so, it seems quite reckless for Clinton to have embraced a child if she has walking pneumonia.
