Whooping cough on the rise
Northern Kentucky is experiencing an increase in reports of whooping cough, also known as pertussis. A majority of the recent cases are being seen in school-aged youth, but whooping cough is concerning because of the risk of severe illness in infants under age 1. Between Nov. 1 and Feb. 8, a total of 109 cases of whooping cough were reported in Northern Kentucky. Most of these cases have been in school age youth age 10-17, although several cases have been reported in parents of school-aged children as well.
