  1. Izabel Portela:

    Dear Adir,
    I think the word ” penumonia ” was written incorrectly.
    The correct is pneumonia ,isn’t it?
    See you!

  2. Adir:

    Hello Izabel.

    Indeed it was misspelt, but we have already corrected it.

    Thank you for noticing and letting us know.

    Take care!
