Whoping Cough

Were you looking for information about Whooping Cough? Whoping cough is a common misspelling of whooping cough.
Whooping cough (also known as pertussis) is a highly contagious respiratory infection. It is caused by the Bordetella pertussis bacterium and is spread through direct contact with an infected person's respiratory secretions, which can be passed through the air or by touching a contaminated surface. Common early symptoms of whooping cough may include runny nose, sneezing, and slight fever; as the infection progresses, people may experience severe coughing spells that end in a "whooping" sound when they inhale.
