Measles Outbreak Hits 21 US States, CDC Says

Measles Outbreak Hits 21 US States, CDC Says

According to CDC, there have already been 107 cases reported this year.

The CDC said the majority of people who contracted measles were unvaccinated.

The reports date between January 1 to July 14, the CDC said, noting that the majority of people who get measles are unvaccinated.

Cruise ship passengers may come down with measles until as late as August 27 because of the virus' seven- to 21-day incubation period.

The CDC's 2018 midyear measles report appears high in comparison with recent years.

The CDC says global travelers, who visit areas where measles are still common, can bring the disease with them when they return to the United States. Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and the District of Colombia have had cases, though none have been reported in Mississippi. A rash or flat red spots starts to appear on different parts of the body, starting from the face at the hairline and spreading downward to the neck, trunk, arms, legs, and feet, after three to five days.

Diego Godin reveals reason he turned down United move
Godin shot down reports claiming he's extended his contract with Athletico, but verified the offers he received from other clubs. Godin was the subject of a bid from the Red Devils as the club looked to strengthen their defence.

Out of 1,000 people who contract the virus, two to three will die from it. The total number of cases that year is the highest number since measles elimination was declared in the United States in 2000.

The infection can result in hospitalization, pneumonia, encephalitis and even death.

Most of the people who got measles had not been vaccinated, the CDC said. The first dose of the vaccine is administered at 12 through 15 months of age, while the second dose is taken at four through six years of age.

If untreated, measles can become severe, especially in young children and people with compromised immune systems.

The measles vaccine - known as the MMR or measles, mumps and rubella vaccine - is very effective. There were 4,643 reported cases in 2016, according to that agency.
