Daviess County, MO (2009-07-02) Recent outbreaks of Pertussis (pur- tus - sus) or Whooping Cough have been detected in Daviess County and surrounding areas.
That's according to Cheryl Alexander, Davies County
Health Department Administrator.
Alexander emphatically urges people and their children to
seek immunization at their local health departments.
Alexander reports people who contract pertussis have
painful coughing spasms accompanied by a loud "whooping"
sound. It is highly contagious, so Alexander urges infected
people to stay home so as not to spread sickness through
coughing and sneezing.
