Caption: Whooping-cough outbreak research. Scientist holding up two blood-filled test tubes whilst preparing specimens for serologic testing during an investigation of 918 cases of pertussis (whooping-cough)-like illness in Franklin County, Ohio, USA. This laboratory testing revealed that the outbreak was linked to two bacterial pathogens: Bordetella pertussis, and B. holmesii, with results demonstrating B. holmesii's previously unknown ability to cause outbreaks in otherwise healthy individuals.
