"Over recent months, spikes in case numbers have also occurred in countries with high overall vaccination coverage, including the United States.as well as Israel, Thailand, and Tunisia, as the disease has spread fast among clusters of unvaccinated people", the World Health Organization said. The World Health Organization reported on Monday that global cases had risen almost four-fold in the first quarter of 2019 to 112,163 compared with the same period past year.
The agency said actual numbers may be far greater, since only one in 10 cases globally are reported. But when an worldwide traveler exposed to measles overseas brings the disease into the country, pockets of unvaccinated communities within the USA enable the disease to spread. Despite the ongoing outbreaks in communities across the United States, measles is still considered eliminated, which means it is not being continuously transmitted in this country.
