  • 2019 Measles Outbreaks

The region's measles outbreak began in Clark County, Washington, where since January 1, health officials had confirmed 49 cases and suspected nine others as of Tuesday morning.

The revelation that the ongoing measles outbreak is tied to a foreign individual does not come as a surprise to those who have studied the disease.

"Yhere was a large group of kids that were exposed to a visitor from outside the country that developed measles, and then what quickly happened is all those kids who were unimmunized actually went to public places like Ikea and Costco and the Portland Trailblazers game and they then spread it to anyone in the population that was unimmunized", Lindquist said in the KOMO Radio interview.

This, the HSE says, is why measles outbreaks are occurring in Ireland and across Europe.

Across the USA, 10 states - California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington - reported 79 confirmed measles cases in January, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Houston Chronicle reports health officials were told the four children who fell ill had received their first of two measles vaccines.

Earlier Monday, Harris County Public Health said two boys under the age of two and a 25 to 35-year-old woman were diagnosed with the measles. If anyone suspects that they or their child has symptoms of measles, they are urged to call their GP first before visiting.

Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, says the response would be immediate.

The HSE says while the majority of children in Donegal still receive the MMR vaccine, the numbers have been dropping slightly over the past few years. "The recommended two doses of the measles vaccine provide even greater protection - 97 percent".

If you have signs or symptoms of measles please contact your healthcare provider.

The virus can linger in the air for up to two hours after an infected person leaves the area, and causes fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes and a rash.
