Comic-Cough is a fast spreading air born virus, that is transmitted throughout thousands of San Diego Comic-Con attendees every year. The origins of this virus are still unknown to this day. However it is speculated that it only effects the young, and 20-30+ y/o basement dwelling virgins, as their immune systems are not capable of fighting off even the simplest common house mold.
Comic-Cough is a virus similar to the para-influenza virus, and the common chest cold. It was originally diagnosed as a form of tracheobronchitis, but was later filed as an "unclassified" human illness. This unpublicized status has allowed the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) to deny it's existence to this day.
Clinical signs of infections occur 2-14 days after exposure, and if uncomplicated with other agents, or bacteria, symptoms will last around 10 days.
