State of emergency declared in US measles outbreak

The CDC recommends that children get the measles mumps and rubella vaccination starting with a first dose at 12 to 15 months followed by a second dose at ages 4 to 6

No additional cases of measles have been identified in Oregon.

"Once it sets into a community, the likelihood of it getting beyond that community or more widespread within that community is high, especially when vaccination rates are low", Mou told CBS News.

With an outbreak of measles centered in Clark County, Gov. Jay Inslee Friday announced a state of emergency, calling the situation an "extreme public health risk that may quickly spread to other counties".

So far, Clark County Public Health has found that 20 of those with the disease had not been immunized.

Samsung Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 launched
We've got a 5MP front camera instead of the M20's 8MP shooter, microUSB instead of USB-C , and no fingerprint scanner at all. The Galaxy M20 has 32GB and 64GB of onboard storage options, both of which are expandable via microSD card (up to 512GB).

The CDC says that typically individuals get measles overseas in areas where immunization rates are low, and then spread the illness in pockets of unvaccinated people.

Officials say the man had recently traveled to Vancouver, Washington, where a measles outbreak is happening, but it's not clear if that's where he was infected. As of yesterday, there are 25 confirmed cases in Clark County and one confirmed case in King County.

"So we can expect to continue to see cases related to this outbreak for many weeks and probably many months".

Officials have identified several locations in Auburn, Kent and Covington, including two crowded high school basketball games at Kentlake High School on January 10 and 12, visited by the infected person last week.

With measles apparently making a comeback in the U.S., Seattle Children's Hospital pediatrician Douglas J. Opel said that preventive steps need to be made urgently.

A doctor's assistant brings a tray with a vaccine against measles, rubella, mumps and chicken pox prior to the vaccination of an infant on February 26, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. One dose of the measles vaccine is about 93 percent effective at preventing measles.

The virus, spread by coughing or sneezing, can remain in the air for up to two hours in an isolated space.

Every time an unvaccinated person who has been exposed to measles goes out in public, "it starts that clock over again", Armstrong said.

5 police officers shot in Houston; 1 suspect dead, 2 barricaded
UPDATE 6:35 p.m.: KHOU CBS 11 reports that one officer was shot in the leg, one in the shoulder, and one in the face. Robots were sent into the home, and after the scene was rendered safe, two suspects were found dead inside.

Those who may have been exposed should watch for early symptoms of fever and malaise and then a rash starting on the head and moving down the body. The CDC says in the province children receive two doses of measles-containing vaccine during routine immunization. The virus can lead to pneumonia (infection of the lungs) and encephalitis (swelling of the brain).
