For this week’s discussion, we talk about the resurgence of Whooping Cough. This week we will examine a case study that outlines the history of pertussis or whooping cough. In the 1930s Pearl Kendrick and Grace Eldering developed a vaccine that by the 1960s reduced the rate of incidence to 5% of what it was in 1934. But the disease was not eradicated, and by 2013 the number of cases was triple the number of the 1980s. Why the resurgence? Use the case study attached and the internet to answer the questions below.
Read through (make sure you include the question Answer any 4 questions the attached case study. numers) and write your post in a narrative format based on your answers to the questions.
