OhioDeptHealth logo

A young adult from Stark County is Ohio's first confirmed measles case in two years, according to the state health officials.

OH has its first case of measles and the state's Health Department urged parents to vaccinate against the infectious disease.

Currently, officials are not disclosing any further information about the infected person.

Measles is extremely contagious and can spread to others through coughing or sneezing.

State officials recommended vaccinations as the best way to protect against the highly contagious disease.

In Israel, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Ukraine, and the Philippines, there are now large outbreaks of measles.

The disease also can cause more serious symptoms, such as such as diarrhea, ear infections, pneumonia, brain infection, seizures and death. OH had its last outbreak of measles in 2014 when 382 people, mostly living in Amish communities, came down with the virus. Cases had been reported in four states neighboring Ohio: Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

Amazon's Alexa to offer NHS healthcare advice
Amazon said it began updating its Echo smart speakers to search NHS websites for medical answers at the start of the week. Big Brother Watch , a pro-privacy civil liberties group, called the move "a data protection disaster waiting to happen".

The Ohio Department of Health reminds and warns: "If one person has measles, up to 90% of those who come into contact with that person and who are not immune will also become infected".

Measles symptoms include a rash, high fever, runny nose, cough, loss of appetite and red, watery eyes.

"This pre-phase makes it very, very hard to control a communicable disease that has this kind of feature because people just don't know they're sick", he said.

They suggest people check with their doctors about their vaccination histories and make sure all members of a family have been vaccinated.

"Vaccinations save lives, period".

Sherry Smith, Nursing Director for the Stark County Health Department, says that 92 percent of county kindergarteners in the 2018-2019 school year are up to date on their MMR vaccine.

The WA Country Health Service's Dr Tania Wallace told the West Australian that parents were being urged to ensure their children were vaccinated against measles according to the immunisation schedule.
