NY county issues 2nd state of emergency over measles outbreak

A woman receives a measles mumps and rubella vaccine at the Rockland County Health Department in Pomona N.Y. Wednesday

So far in 2019, 626 cases of the measles have been reported in 22 states, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The resurgence, which public health officials blamed in part on the spread of misinformation about the safety of vaccines, has been concentrated mainly in Washington state and NY with outbreaks that began late a year ago.

County health officials then imposed a more limited order affecting measles-exposed people in certain ZIP codes.

The person arrived recently arrived from outside the United States, the health department said, noting that the case doesn't appear to be related to the nationwide outbreak.

"They need to", said one mother of four about people getting vaccinated.

Since our last update on the measles situation in California, an additional 15 cases have been reported. "Not all cases are being reported, which is unfortunate".

The MMR vaccine protects against measles, mumps and rubella, and is both very safe and effective.

"Massive combined inoculations to small children is the cause for big increase in autism", Trump said on Twitter in 2012. "If someone has measles, if they're in a room with unvaccinated people, nine out of 10 of those people are going to get measles". Kennedy told reporters that Trump asked him to lead a commission on "vaccination safety and scientific integrity".

Mr Trump has previously appeared to link vaccines and autism.

Even though reported cases have crept up to almost 200, Ruppert said the actual number is likely higher. "However, I pledge that we will continue to do everything within our power to combat this deadly disease and bring it to a stop once and for all", Day said in a Rockland County press release. The measles is spread through coughing and sneezing, and the virus has the ability to live in the air for almost two hours after an infected person coughs or sneezes, thus infecting mass numbers of defenseless people in a short period of time.

Currently, there is no antiviral drug to treat the measles, adding to the severity of the disease.
