Emergency declared in Oregon for measles outbreak in anti-vaccine hotspot

Major measles outbreak strikes anti-vaxxer stronghold in Washington state

It has now led to 19 people suffering from Measles around the Washington State.

Though someone infected with measles attended the National Basketball Association game on January 11 at the Moda Center, no Oregon residents have been diagnosed with the virus, public health officials in Multnomah County, Oregon, said.

Health officials in one county in Washington have declared a public health emergency because of an outbreak of measles that has infected 22 people so far. The CDC recommends children get two doses of the vaccine. It is highly contagious and spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Twenty-three people have been diagnosed with measles in Clark County, and two more people are believed to have the illness.

Clark County Public Health is asking students and staff without proof of vaccination to stay away from schools that health officials identified as possible exposure sites.

In an update posted to Clark County's website on Tuesday, officials said 18 cases were confirmed in patients ages 1 to 10, while four occurred in patients ages 11 to 18, and one was confirmed in a patient between 19 and 29. No deaths have been reported and only one case has resulted in hospitalization. Seven percent of those children did not receive vaccinations for personal or religious reasons, WaPo reported.

The measles, mumps and rubella vaccine was controversial after a British doctor published a paper linking the vaccine to autism.

"Clark County Public Health is urging anyone who has been exposed and believes they have symptoms of measles to call their health care provider prior to visiting the medical office to make a plan that avoids exposing others in the waiting room", the news release said.

Metroid Prime 4 development to restart with Retro Studios as new developer
Takahashi did not give a window for a release date, only saying that "development time will be extensive". I am a long time Nintendo fan and love the Prime series. "We did not make this decision lightly".

The problem is especially pronounced, the paper found, in more than a dozen "hotspot metropolitan areas", including Portland and Seattle in the Northwest, Phoenix in the Southwest and Pittsburgh in the Northeast.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 17 separate outbreaks contributing to that country's 2018 total, including three largely linked to unvaccinated people in Orthodox Jewish communities in NY and New Jersey. But it raises the possibility the Washington outbreak could spread across the state line.

2018 saw the second-highest number of measles cases since the start of the 21st century, according to a CDC report.

Because measles is still endemic in parts of the world, said Opel, "periodic introduction by people traveling is what's causing frequent outbreaks here". Recently, children are not being vaccinated. This would reduce the chances of healthy people getting infected by the disease.
