Measles count in USA this year already more than all of 2018

There have been 387 confirmed cases of measles in the United States so far this year, a figure that is higher than the full-year total for 2018 and the second-highest total since measles was declared eliminated in this country in 2000, CDC said Monday. Most people recover from measles in a few weeks, but in severe cases - those who are immunocompromised due to chemotherapy, for example, and thus can't be vaccinated - the virus can be deadly. The extremely virus is airborne, and spread via coughing and sneezing.

The CDC reported on Monday 387 measles cases between January 1 and March 28, 2019.

"As of July 18, 2018, all 50 states and [Washington] DC require vaccinations for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis; polio; measles and rubella (49 states and DC also require mumps vaccination); and the varicella (chickenpox) vaccination", according to

That's the second-greatest number since measles was declared officially eliminated in the USA nine years ago, and a unsafe indication of things to come.

"Measles is a highly contagious virus that lives in the nose and throat mucus of an infected person". Also, measles can cause pregnant women to deliver prematurely.

Meanwhile, the CDC defines an "outbreak" as three or more cases in an area.

"We're going to still need to maintain population immunity for some time until we can actually get vaccination levels high all over the world, so that no one is at risk", Amesh Adalja from the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security tells NPR, adding that keeping numbers down is challenging because it's so contagious. "We have a safe, effective and low-cost vaccine against a highly contagious disease - a vaccine that has saved nearly a million lives every year over the last two decades", says Henrietta Fore, UNICEF's Executive Director. And still the number crosses the sum total of previous year.

"As evident from the measles outbreaks now impacting communities in several states, when individuals are not immunized as a matter of personal preference or misinformation, they put themselves and others at risk of disease".

"The best way people can protect themselves from measles is to make sure they have been vaccinated with two doses of MMR vaccine".

Meanwhile, according to NECN, health officials in MA posted a public health warning due to possible Measles expousure in the Bay State.
