Cdc Studying Pertussis Outbreak

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Anyone who came down with pertussis, or whooping cough, this spring should expect a call from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC has sent a team from Atlanta, Ga., to investigate North Idaho’s outbreak of pertussis that killed an infant, left more than 150 people in the Panhandle hacking and emptied schools and day-care centers.

The CDC team will be calling people who had pertussis, people who had contact with a pertussis victim and some people who had children who were 9 to 12 months old at the time of the outbreak.

The CDC will study the data to attempt to learn if there are any differences between those who got sick and those who didn’t. , DataTimes
