A person infected with measles attended a Portland Trail Blazers home game in OR last week amid an outbreak that has left at least 22 people ill this month in neighboring Washington state. Molly Solomon from Oregon Public Broadcasting reports. It can also be hard to catch early signs of the illness; symptoms generally start to appear seven to 14 days after infection, meaning that people can spread the disease before they know they are sick.

"It's the kids who are too young to be immunized, or who are too sick to be immunized that we worry about", Swanson said.

In Friday's statement, Inslee said, "Measles is a highly contagious infectious disease that can be fatal in small children". Sometimes, doctors and nurses see patients in the parking lot to avoid contamination.

There has also been an adult case.

SPARLING: We're trying to be as careful as we can because we'd like to try to shut down this infection chain. These exemptions have made OR and Washington "more susceptible to entirely preventable outbreaks", he told Vox.

According to DPH, three cases were confirmed in 2018. Infected droplets from the individual with measles can spray into the air or land on a surface, where they remain active and contagious for hours.

Public health officials in the USA are scrambling to contain the situation and warned people to vaccinate their children. "Fortunately, the measles vaccine is very effective". "We wouldn't be dealing with this if we had vaccination rates up".

Children traveling overseas may need to be vaccinated before their first birthday, and women who are hoping to become pregnant should discuss vaccinations with their health care provider, as the MMR vaccine is not recommended during pregnancy. One vaccine provides 93 per cent immunity from measles, and two shots provide 97 per cent protection.

The outbreak sprung a flurry of activity on social media including Facebook and there is a spread of misinformation. "Clearly this is going to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and it wouldn't surprise me if we were in the seven figures by the time we're done here", he said.

Additionally, almost eight percent of children in the county were exempt from getting vaccines required for kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year. "If you pour that bucket of rash over your head, the rash sort of cascades down", Sammons said.

"The media tends to distort this", she said.

JASURTA: Like, he's on house arrest.

This is tragic news, but it shouldn't come as a surprise.

"As a pediatrician and parent, I find it frustrating because this is happening among children who are dependent on their parents' decision-making", said Wendy Swanson, a pediatrician and chief of digital innovation at Seattle Children's Hospital.

For now, her family is avoiding crowded areas and even chose to delay their daughter's birthday party.
