There was a death from whooping cough here in Washington state about a week ago.

thanks for posting this re whooping cough in Washington —
In 2001 I was in Seattle and Tacoma for about two weeks in the context of a world music festival ( alot of people from third world nations).When I came home (to NYC) I was terribly sick with a cough that wouldn’t go away — I couldn’t eat or even drink tea — I also began to “whoop” in my cough. I went to a doctor and told him that I thought I had whooping cough — he aaid it was impossible, that it diodn’t exist. I went home and kept whooping. I was in bed for six weeks. Later I read an article about whooping cough in the NY Times and the description of the symptoms matched exactly what I had had.
