Patient : 12 days back my mother aged 58 had severe shivering with high-grade fever. Blood test was done with malaria and typhoid negative. Anticipating viral infection she was run on antibiotics for 5 days. At that time the report of blood showed some alarming signs. Hb-8.8, Neutrophil-90, Lymphocyte-9, ESR-40.
