BUTTE - Another case of whooping cough was confirmed on Friday.
The Butte Silver Bow Health Department has now confirmed eight whooping cough, or pertussis, cases since June 5. The latest case was found in female who is in her early 20s.
It's possible that an immunization clinic could be held in early August but has not been confirmed yet.
The hope is that the illness will be controlled before school begins again this fall.
