Brief Answer:
Better to get done chest x ray.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
This report is suggestive of bacterial infection (high total count and leukocyte count).
She is also having having persistent cough.
So we should definitely rule out lung infection (pneumonia) in her case.
So better to get done chest x ray to rule out pneumonia.
If chest x ray is normal then no need to worry much.
Please let me which antibiotic she is taking so that I can guide you better.
I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your wife. Thanks.
