Confirmed Measles Cases In Oregon

Owen Humphreys  AP

"Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent measles", Dr. Matt Richardson, director of public health, said in a news release.

In Harris County, two boys and a woman are being treated for measles. The Pacific Northwest outbreak includes one confirmed case in King County, where Seattle is located, and one in Multnomah County, which includes Portland, Ore.

Measles is a highly contagious viral disease, without specific antiviral treatment available, says the CDC. The Houston outbreak comes as new circumstances of measles are being confirmed in Washington state every day, and different instances have been established in Oregon, Georgia, and NY.

The Cavaliers will also continue to look elsewhere as they seek to rebuild a team that now stands at 11-43 on the year. According to The Athletic's Shams Charania , the Kings will also be getting a second-round pick from Cleveland.


Measles is often brought into the United States by unvaccinated people who become infected in other countries, says the CDC. Residents born prior to 1957 are considered immune to measles but those born in 1957 or after should verify vaccination history.

And, the Pan American Health Organization, the World Health Organization and other news sources reported significant increases in measles cases during the week ending February 2, 2019.

Research has confirmed that vaccines don't cause autism, a common reason cited by parents who reject vaccinations.

She added: "It's indisputable that our country has never been stronger than it is today under the leadership of President Trump". Following the story, a White House aide later took to Twitter to brand the report as a "disgraceful breach of trust".


Symptoms of measles include fever, cough, red eyes, sore throat and a rash that spreads all over the body.

Health officials said it takes two doses of the MMR vaccine to protect you against Measles, Mumps and Rubella - and it will give you peace of mind if you come down with similar symptoms.

The Northwest cases are among three ongoing measles outbreaks in the US that sickened 79 people in January, according to the CDC.
