Whooping Cough

Presented by Infinitec

Whooping cough is a highly contagious bacterial infection that is transferred from person to person through body fluids. Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, is characterized by an uncontrollable, violent coughing which makes it difficult to breathe. After coughing, a person with pertussis often needs to take deep breaths, which results in a "whooping" sound. Pertussis most commonly affects infants under the age of six months who are too young to receive a vaccination for the illness or in adolescents whose vaccines are starting to fade.
