USA federal health officials said on Monday the number of confirmed cases of measles in the United States this year jumped by almost 20% in the week ended 11 April - the country's second-worst outbreak in almost two decades.

So far this year, 170 countries have reported 112,163 measles cases to WHO. The World Health Organization reported Monday there were more than 110,000 measles cases worldwide in the first three months of 2019 - an increase of almost 300% from the same period past year.

While vaccines are required for school children across the country, nearly all states allow exemptions for families who say it's against their religious beliefs, and 17 states allow a parent to opt out for philosophical or personal reasons. According to the CDC, there was an average of 6,000 measles-related deaths each year within the first decade of the disease being reported.

Measles, which is highly contagious, can be entirely prevented through a two-dose vaccine, but the World Health Organization has in recent months sounded the alarm over declining global vaccination rates. The city said those individuals who become infected with measles and chose not to get vaccinated since the mandatory order would be fined $1,000 dollars.
