The CDC said that at least eight other states have reported cases of the measles in 2019: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Oregon. Measles can be exceptionally unsafe for young children and infants.

The Multnomah County health department said Wednesday that the three new cases were in close contact with a person who tested positive for measles a week and a half ago. The agency says worldwide travelers returning from Israel and Ukraine-where large outbreaks recently occurred-appear to be spreading the measles in the United States.

As for measles, fears arising from misinformation leads to troubling outbreaks.

Denton County officials said they do not believe their case and the Houston ones are connected.

Rubella, also known as German measles, can cause a mild rash on the face, swelling of glands behind the ears, and in some cases, swelling of the small joints and low-grade fever.

Measles is an airborne virus that lives in the nose and throat mucus of an infected person and can be spread through coughing and sneezing. The outbreak includes 42 cases among those who were not immunized, six cases where immunization has not been verified and one case where the person had received a single dose of vaccine.

According to the Mayo Clinic, people who are unvaccinated, travel to developing countries or have a vitamin A deficiency are more likely to catch the measles. This is why measles outbreaks are occurring in Ireland and across Europe.

DCPH is now in the process of identifying and contacting people who may have been exposed to the virus and this case has not been linked to any other measles cases.

In 2018, Texas had nine confirmed measles cases.

As of Sunday, 51 cases of the highly contagious disease had been diagnosed in Portland, Vancouver and Seattle.

"I want to back up everything Chris Bischoff said about vaccination", commented Skamokawa resident Boone Mora, a retired public health doctor.

The first dose is administered at between 12 through 15 months of age and the second dose at between 4 and 6 years of age.
