CDC monitoring measles outbreak in 21 states

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports on its website that from January 1 to July 14, 107 people have were reported to have measles. In 2014, the United States experienced a record number of measles cases, with 667 cases from 27 states reported to the CDC.

The majority of the individuals who were infected were unvaccinated, said the CDC, which urges everyone to get inoculated as soon as possible. Of those, 338 were connected to a single large outbreak. It was the greatest number of measles cases the country had seen since the disease was eliminated in 2000.

Symptoms of measles include a fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes and rash (usually starting on the face and spreading down the body). In 2016, 86 people from 19 states had measles.

The measles are spreading in IL and other states in 2018. "MMR vaccine provides long-lasting protection against all strains of measles", the CDC official said.
