States with outbreaks reported to the Centers for Disease Control include New York, Michigan, Georgia, and Washington state.

With new reports of measles popping up on a daily basis it was all but inevitable that this day would come, and here we are: Half of all USA states have now reported new cases of measles since the outbreak began several months back. A case in point: New York state has reported 606 cases of measles in 2019, with New York City and Rockland County epicenters of disease.

'I would guess that we're still going to see more cases, but the rate at which it goes up will depend on how well-contained the current outbreaks are, ' says Dr Esper.

Of the 62 measles investigations on flights this year, "21 were from domestic flights, 14 inbound worldwide, 5 outbound IHR (outbound flights from the USA to another country reported to CDC by a foreign agency) and 22 global IHRs (international to global flights with a U.S. resident reported to CDC from a foreign agency)", Shockey said, adding that "the difference on the last two is that Outbound IHRs are from a United States airport to a Foreign Airport".

However, Dr Esper notes that tests of the MMR vaccine found that it is effective against the strain now sweeping the US.

The recommended two doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine are about 97% effective at preventing measles, while one dose is about 93% effective.

Parents are being urged to get their children vaccinated for measles, mumps and rubella following outbreaks of measles across Europe.

And infectious disease experts expect the numbers of cases will just continue to grow. Individuals vaccinated between 1963 and 1968 may have received the Killed Measles Vaccine (KMV).

'Someone that was against the vaccine in 2014 now says go get your vaccine and that is what we'd like to see'.

"Even one child missing their vaccine is one too many - if you are in any doubt about your child's vaccination status, ask your GP as it's never too late to get protected".

The child is now in good health.

Symptoms usually resolve in about 7 to 10 days.

The measles virus has broken out in half the American state. About 3 out of 100 people who get both doses of vaccine will get measles if exposed to the virus.

Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, up to 90 percent of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected. According to the spokesperson, an outbreak of geographically related measles cases is not considered to have ended until 42 days-two consecutive 21-day incubation periods-have passed without any new cases.
