Measles Outbreak Spurs Vaccination Surge in Anti Vaxxer Hotspot

With over 50 confirmed cases of measles in Washington state, lawmakers have introduced a bill that would eliminate personal or philosophical exemptions to being vaccinated from measles, mumps and rubella. In Italy, where the current governing coalition had pledged to drop a law banning children without vaccination from starting pre-school (the coalition has since reversed its position), health officials have declared a 'measles emergency, ' as nearly one quarter of all measles cases in Europe in 2017 were reported in Italy.

Data from the DOH Epidemiology Bureau revealed that there has been a total of 4,302 measles cases with 70 fatalities from January 1 to February 9 this year.

Of the 53 cases confirmed, 47 involve people who had not been immunized.

For a full list of exposure sites, check here. Health officials have reported at least 52 known cases in the state. The virus lives in the nose and throat mucus of an infected person, and can survive for up to two hours in an airspace where the infected person coughed or sneezed.

"Once pneumonia sets in and then you get secondary bacterial infections, tuloy-tuloy na, mabilis downhill kasi yung maliit na bata, the health system is so fragile", he added.

Clark County Public Health also now maintains a daily call center for questions about the outbreak at 360-397-8021.

Clackamas County, Ore., Public Health, 503-655-8411. There are dozens of locations in total, including hospitals, Portland International Airport and multiple schools.

The DOH said that the recent measles outbreak in parts of the country could be attributed to vaccine hesitancy among the public.

Symptoms of measles include fever, reddening of the eyes, cough and colds, and red rashes, the agency added.

As the Daily Beast reported this week, measles can also trigger subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), a form of chronic brain inflammation that is nearly invariably fatal. After someone is exposed to measles, illness develops in about one to three weeks.
