Wisconsin whooping cough cases highest in nation

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin will finish 2012 with its highest number of whooping cough cases in years.

State health officials said there were almost 5,700 confirmed and probable instances of whooping cough as of December 14th. That’s almost five times as many cases as the previous year, when 1,200 were reported.

Back in 2004, the Badger State had 5,600 pertussis cases – and none of the following years were even close until this year.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control said 93 of every 100,000 Wisconsinites had whooping cough this year through November 23rd.  That’s the highest rate in the nation – and it’s more than eight times the national average.

Pertussis, the medical name for whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory condition. It can appear as a bad cold in adults – but it can be a deadly disease for young children.
