Whooping cough is a very contagious infection caused by bacteria. It is spread by breathing in droplets in the air that have been coughed or sneezed by an infected person. The first symptoms of whooping cough are similar to those of a cold. The cough then intensifies and can cause vomiting and respiratory problems. The disease can last for a very long time, from 6 to 10 weeks, sometimes longer. In certain cases, it can lead to serious consequences, including death. Fortunately, whooping cough is an infection that can be easily prevented owing to vaccination.
