U.S. sees surge of nearly 20 per cent in confirmed cases of measles, reports

So far this year, 170 countries have reported 112,163 measles cases to WHO. The increase in measles cases counters the worldwide success in reducing cases by nearly 80% from 2000 to 2016.

All children over six months of age were required to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, and parents who didn't comply could be fined $1,000.

The first early symptoms of measles are fever, runny nose, sore red eyes and cough. The rash lasts several days. The clinic is only for adults with one or no previous vaccination. The county is facing an ongoing measles outbreak, which has sickened 186, mostly children. The outbreak has spread primarily throughout the Orthodox Jewish Community, where vaccination rates tend to be lower and anti-vaccination literature has spread.

Rockland County officials desperate to limit the spread of the measles outbreak before it becomes an outright epidemic on Tuesday banned all exposed, unvaccinated people from public gathering places, including houses of worship, for the next three weeks, AP reported.

Sustained increases in measles cases are on the rise worldwide, and many countries are in the midst of sizeable outbreaks, causing many deaths, mostly among young children.

Those born before 1957 or who previously had measles or had two measles vaccine shots are considered immune because of the vaccine's high rate of effectiveness.

The CDC notes that the 555 cases reported so far this year is the second-highest number of cases reported in the USA since the disease was eliminated in 2000.

At the time, the authorities said it wanted to inoculate 1.5 million children and teenagers in the Emirates against measles.

Potential complications of measles include permanent hearing loss, pneumonia and brain damage. The cases were found in 20 states spanning the country.

Zuchowski says he's concerned because "they're playing, walking among the kids who could possibly have the measles because they don't have any vaccinations". "Measles is very, very serious". Some of them have refused to vaccinate their children, leaving the tight-knit communities vulnerable to the highly contagious disease. "I don't think that's right, I don't think it's necessary". But if you've been vaccinated, can you still catch the disease?
