Other complications happen much more frequently, even here in the U.S. About one in every four people who get measles will need to be hospitalized-often because of severe ear infections, diarrhea, or pneumonia. If you have been exposed, you are at risk if you have not been vaccinated or have not had measles.

Measles is a very contagious disease caused by a virus and can be serious for young children.

"This is just another reason that everybody else that is able to get the vaccine should get it as there is something called herd immunity where people are immunized around them, so people who can not get immunized are protected from the disease", she added. Vaccination-free kids were practically unheard of at the turn of the century.

Local lawmakers in Washington state have responded to the outbreak by advancing legislation that would do away with exemptions on personal or philosophical grounds. Your immunization record or your doctor can provide you with this information.

Three-quarters of the increase had been registered in only ten States, told Unicef. That includes cases in Colorado.

In 2018, 372 people in 25 states and the District of Columbia were reported to have measles; most of those cases involved unvaccinated people, she added. Many of those live in close-knit communities where they share the same religious beliefs or ethnic backgrounds as their neighbors.

There have been 159 cases of measles confirmed across 10 states this year: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington, according to a report released by the CDC on Monday. "However, the specific issues fueling hesitancy vary by community" and must be attacked locally with the help of the CDC.

The disease can be prevented by the MMR vaccine, which protects against three diseases.

"We are very concerned about the continued upward tick of measles in our area despite concentrated and valiant efforts by DOH".

The new outbreak of the disease that is more contagious than influenza or tuberculosis in some countries is somewhat due to the unjustified claims that the measles vaccine is associated with autism.

This case is unrelated to the current outbreak that has affected 73 people in OR and Washington.

"That's what we're trying to eliminate, is that secondary exposure", he says.

In Romania, reported cases dropped 89 per cent from 8,673 to 943, and in Indonesia, the number declined by 65 per cent from 11,389 to 3,995. "This slide is really unacceptable; this is a totally vaccine-preventable disease".

In the United States, there was a 559 per cent year-on-year increase in cases from 120 to 791.

A few hearing participants shared their own experience with the disease.

Dr. Audrey K. Chun, an associate professor in the department of geriatrics and palliative medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, said older adults are at a low risk for contracting measles.
