but of course dear! your kids are more at risk than you because their immune systems aren't fully developed yet...and you have a 5 month old baby. but pneumonia is usually curable naman. pneumonia can be bacterial or viral but the most common causative agents are bacteria. i guess you should send your househelper to a doctor so he can give the proper treatment, firing her seemed to harsh for me. i dont know ah, kasi kami dati may katulong na marang buni/an-an and mayroon pa ngang epilepsy, what we did was cure her. my parents naman kasi are both doctors so aiun. haha. anyway padala mo siya sa doctor ah, that way not only your family will be safe but also others na makahalubilo niya sa future.
pneumonia is not as contagious as tuberculosis. nontheless, contagious.
