ANACONDA - The spread of whooping cough in Anaconda may be slowing down.
Seven test results were sent back from the state health department on Wednesday. All the results reported negative for whooping cough, according to Linda Best, acting director of the public health department in Anaconda.
On Tuesday, the health department in Anaconda reported 27 confirmed cases of whooping cough. Officials say those cases are mostly within the Anaconda school system.
More tests will be performed this afternoon and sent to the state health department. Officials say they are not seeing an increase in whooping cough like they were last week.
