Over five thousand confirmed and probable cases of whooping cough have been found in Wisconsin this year. That is the highest rate in the nation and a serious concern for local parents.
Local health officials say some of the early signs of whooping cough include a runny nose, a low grade fever, mild or occasional coughing and shortness of breath. If these symptoms last more than a week it is recommended you see a doctor.
