Whooping cough hits Tri-County area

July 17, 2012

The Tri-County area of Ferry, Stevens and Pend Oreille Counties are experiencing significant numbers of pertussis (whooping cough) cases, according to Dr. Ed Gray, M.D., Health Officer of the Northeast Tri-County Health District.
“There has been a sharp increase in the number of cases in the Inchelium, Colville, and Kettle Falls areas in the last two weeks,” says Dr. Gray. “Many of these cases have led to exposures at places of business, sports events, daycares, churches, health care facilities, and exposure for out of state/country residents.”
