Decline in Whooping Cough Cases

Decline in Whooping Cough Cases

Though whooping cough outbreak is continuing, a decline in the cases has been witnessed. As per recently released information from the Health Protection Agency, it has been revealed that number of cases of the whooping cough in England and Wales have reduced.

To mention some of the statistics, it was found that there were 1,080 new cases that were reported in November in comparison to 1,631 cases, which were reported in October.

Dr Gayatri Amirthalingam from the Health Protection Agency said that they rook a sign of relief when the figures for November emerged in front of them. But, they have not taken a complete sigh of relief, as it is too early to predict the flow.

"It is very important to note that we usually see a reduction in cases of whooping cough at this time of year so this decrease is in line", said she.

While talking about the vulnerable, she was found saying that new born babies with weak immune system are at the maximum risk to get diagnosed with whooping cough. Things get even more complicated, as they are too small to be provided with any sort of vaccination. Therefore, it is vital that mothers should take all the preventive measures.
