Abstract [en]

Measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 have been associated with reduction in other respiratory infections. Results of a national Swedish cohort study of infant pertussis during April 2020-September 2021 were compared with those during January 2014-March 2020. The number of pertussis cases decreased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, from an average of 21 infant cases per quarter of a year before the pandemic to an average of 1 case per quarter during the pandemic. Swedish strategies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 seem to have had an impact on pertussis incidence in infants. Measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have also reduced other respiratory viral infections in children. This study from Sewden found that the number of infant pertussis infections also fell during the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors discuss the implications of this finding.
