Canada : Whooping Cough Outbreak In Southern Alberta

Article via Huffington Post :

 Alberta Health Services says there's been 34 confirmed cases of whooping cough so far this year in the southern part of the province and more may be unreported.

Local medical officer of Health, Dr. Vivien Suttorp, says the disease is cyclical, with outbreaks occurring every three to five years.
She says it's affecting people of all ages.
Suttorp says young children would likely have the worst symptoms and adults more of just a nagging cough that could last several weeks."
