Disease activity update for Monday, February 11th, 2019
Measles: From January 1 to February 7, 2019, 101** individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 10 states. The states that have reported confirmed cases are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington. Many of Utah's counties are at high risk for Measles outbreaks due to vaccination rates dipping dangerously low. Now is a really good time to make sure your children are adequately vaccinated against Measles and to discuss the benefits of vaccinating them with your healthcare provider if they are not.
A good source for parents and patients to learn more about Measles is this CDC page.
To determine the activity level (high, moderate, low, minimal, none) for a specific germ, we compare the current trend in the number of cases of a given germ with trends from previous outbreaks tracked by GermWatch.
Find information about the activity level for a specific germ and other tracking criteria, including signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
