Missouri confirms case of measles

Fourth measles case in Auckland

There have now been four measles cases in Auckland this year.

An outbreak of measles that began in January in southern Washington state has risen to 79 cases throughout Washington and OR, according to the Oregonian.

State health officials said Wednesday that a person in eastern Missouri had contracted the disease while traveling out of state, without identifying the person or where the person had traveled.

"The truth is, even with the best of care, people die from measles", she said.

Czech Television reports that the number of people getting tested to see if they still have antibodies to measles, has increased rapidly in the past weeks.

Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Dr Ramon Pink says measles numbers continue to increase in Canterbury. "And I understand that some of that bogus information can be frightening to parents so I think it's important that they go to credible sources".

In New York on Tuesday, a federal judge rejected a request for a temporary restraining order that would have allowed 44 unvaccinated children to attend school in Rockland County. In what could be termed as a major outbreak, measles have been reported among adults and infants. In 2018, 21,812 cases were reported with 202 deaths. The outbreak has mostly affected the area's close-knit Orthodox Jewish families. This means 466 children are not fully vaccinated-lower than the national average and far below the 95pc target set by the World Health Organisation.

Doctors opine that measles spread easily during the summer and the only precautionary measure is to receive vaccination on time.

In late January, health officials in Washington's Clark County, which sits north of Portland, Ore., reported that 22 people had been infected with measles in the city of Vancouver, Wash., with most of the cases involving children under 10.

While Canterbury is responding to a measles outbreak in its community, the Ministry of Health's Director of Public Health, Dr Caroline McElnay, is reassuring Kiwis that most of New Zealand remains measles free. Combinational MMR vaccines comprises mixture of two or more viral strains.

Measles is a respiratory virus that typically starts with signs such as a high fever, cough, congestion, and conjunctivitis and is quickly followed by a rash that spreads across the entire body. The MMR vaccination cycle is initially delivered to toddlers 12 to 15 months of age, with a second follow-up dose given between 4 and 6.
