Q 3. Any relation between WBC and blood cancer?
Q 4. How it is possible a healthy person die after two days of ill?
I am sorry to hear about your cousin. Some viral fevers or bacterial infections are at times so strong that they take over the whole body system. The infection is so strong that the body is unable to fight it. But since her temperature was normal, maybe this was not the cause unless she had fever in the recent past. Yes, some blood and bone marrow cancers can lower the WBC count. It is very difficult to assess the cause on net. You will have to talk to the doctors who were treating her. Take care!
