Pertussis (whooping cough) is a life-threatening, highly contagious disease caused by the respiratory bacterium Bordetella pertussis. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pertussis affects approximately 16 million people each year globally, accounting for nearly 200,000 deaths. There has been an overall increase in reported pertussis cases since the early 1980s. Pertussis can lead to serious illness in people of all ages and can be life-threatening in young infants.
