Description

Whooping cough cases have tripled in California, health officials said Thursday, with the Central Valley, the San Francisco Bay Area and the Los Angeles area seeing sizable increases.
There have been 584 confirmed cases of whooping cough, also known as pertussis , between Jan. 1 to May 31, a threefold increase from the same time period last year, when there were 190 cases, said Ken August, a spokesman for the California Department of Public Health.
The illness can cause adults to experience severe spasms of coughing that, if left untreated, can last three or four months. At most risk are young infants, who are most vulnerable to the bacterial disease and can die after infection.
In the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area, there has been a six-fold increase, from 29 cases to 173 cases for the first five months of the year. In Fresno County, there are 76 cases so far this year, up from nine.
In Los Angeles County, there are 121 suspected and confirmed cases of pertussis, while during the same time period last year, there were 56 confirmed cases. Orange County has seen 41 suspected and confirmed cases so far this year, up from six during the same time last year.
