Abstract

Pertussis continues to be a problem in NSW, with 456 case notifications received in November 2000, and 3229 for the year to the end of November 2000 (Table 6). The greatest number were again received from the Hunter Area. Fewer than 10 per cent of cases were children under five years of age (Figure 7).
