Rhode Island is So Lame
(Source) “CUMBERLAND, R.I. (WPRI) – Cumberland School officials sent an email to parents on Wednesday, notifying them one high school student has been diagnosed with whooping cough.
In the email obtained by Eyewitness News, school officials instructed parents to watch for symptoms of whooping cough, or Pertussis in their children.
This comes one week after the Department of Health confirmed eight cases of Pertussis at Ponaganset High School in Scituate.
While many people are vaccinated against Pertussis as infants, health officials said the strength of the vaccine weakens as they get older.
Symptoms of Pertussis are coughing, fever, and a runny nose.”
Shut down the state. Shut it down! One kid in Cumberland has whooping cough. Thank God I’ve been watching the Walking Dead because this is undoubtedly the start of a zombie apocalypse. Did you read those symptoms? Coughing, fever, A RUNNY NOSE! Why did this terrible disease have to come and invade my home state! We need to be in full blown quarantine mode right now. Anyone seen coughing, sneezing or wincing needs to be taken out before this gets out of control. Rhode Island will not go down without a fight!
P.S. What year is it? I thought whooping cough was cured 100 years ago.
