Washington State Reports More Measles Cases

The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

The Houston outbreak comes as new cases of measles are being confirmed in Washington state on a daily basis, and other cases have been confirmed in Oregon, Georgia, and NY. In King County, home of Seattle, at least one confirmed case was reported. At the same time, World Health Organization says measles vaccination prevented an estimated 21.1 million deaths from 2000 to 2017.

Two other outbreaks have also been reported this year, the CDC said, in New York state and New York City. Authorities said Friday one case was a person who had received one dose of the measles vaccine.

A 2017 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that only 83 percent of OR adolescents had received their booster shots against tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough. All three individuals live in northwest Harris County, according to Harris County Public Health. If someone who is not immune to the virus breathes the air or touches an infected surface, they can become infected, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "This is entirely preventable", he said in a statement to NBC News. "We might start getting to a point where we have a critical mass un-immunized children, so that if measles gets introduced into a community, that may be the spark to spread from one kid to another to another.and that may be the spark for measles to get re-established in the United States".

Anti-vaccination hot spots have been developing for several years. Once a person has measles, about 90% of close contacts who are susceptible to it will develop the disease, she added. "Complications include pneumonia, brain swelling and possible brain damage, and death".

Vitamin A is found in many foods, such as spinach, dairy products and liver. "Lack of vaccination equals increased opportunity for disease outbreak". It is also used in topical creams to reduce fine wrinkles, splotches and roughness and to treat acne. Most side effects are mild, and it does not cause autism. There are large measles outbreaks ongoing in both of those countries.

A person with measles will themselves be most infectious to others in the period four days before and after the rash appears. Before the vaccine's introduction in 1963, there were four million measles cases in the USA every year, with 48,000 hospitalizations and 500 deaths. The second, called the MMRV vaccine, protects children from measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox. "The recommended two doses of the measles vaccine provide even greater protection - 97 percent".

Children are offered the MMR injection at 12 months of age and again at 4 to 5 years of age. If everyone receives the vaccine with proper doses, herd immunity is achieved.

Measles infections go in 21-day cycles.

The first symptoms of measles are a high fever, cough, runny nose, and red, watery eyes (conjunctivitis), which could be confused with any number of other viruses, especially during cold and flu season. Many health-care professionals (HCPs), such as doctors, in the public health sector fear that the previous year might be the lowest FIC rate in a decade.
