Saying "the disease is treatable with antibiotics" could be misleading. It makes people think all they have to do is take antibiotics to get cured. Antibiotics may possibly help if given before the rapid coughing sets in. This early diagnosis almost never happens. It also is not correct that the early symptoms necessarily include a cough.
