While the U.S. faces measles outbreaks from NY to Washington state, reigniting discussions about the risk of parents who refuse to vaccinate their children, Madagascar has been fighting the worst eruption of the disease in decades. It's so contagious that it can live in an air space for two hours.
Vaccination rates in King County - where the other single measles case in Washington was is located - also went up. It causes a range of symptoms including fever, cough and a rash. But in severe cases complications from the disease can lead to blindness, pneumonia and death. Put more simply, it is a disease no one wants to watch their child suffer.
Since the beginning of the year, things have been looking increasingly grim in parts of OR and Washington due to a measles outbreak that has affected dozens of people.
A total of 72 children and adults died in 2018 following infection, the World Health Organization said. Many proponents claim, without evidence, that vaccinations can cause autism.
In England and Wales, Public Health England (PHE) data shows there were 913 cases of measles between January and October 2018 - the most recent data available.
Some 82,596 people in 47 of 53 countries contracted measles, the highest number this decade and three times the figure in 2017.
While families in Madagascar have difficulty accessing the measles vaccine, outbreaks in Europe and the USA are often linked to vaccine hesitancy - the reluctance of parents to vaccinate their children because of unfounded fears about the treatment. "The recommended 2 doses of the measles vaccine provide even greater protection-97%".
Canada has been free of endemic measles since 1998, meaning the virus isn't constantly present. If people aren't vaccinated, the virus can spread easily. This time, it's an outbreak of measles in Clark County, Wash.
"I would rather it not take an outbreak for this to happen", he said.
The inquiries for measles remedy has risen sharply in Washington County, where this year the highly contagious virus is associated with more than 50 incidents of the illness, involving people who have previously avoided vaccinations.
"During an outbreak is when you see an influx of patients who would otherwise be vaccine-hesitant", said Virginia Ramos, infection control nurse with Sea Mar Community Health Center, which runs six sites that offer vaccines in Clark County.
On Wednesday, officials sent letters to families of 5,000 children in Multnomah County telling them they'll be excluded from school if they don't have up-to-date immunizations or valid exemptions by February 20. About 600 people a day were vaccinated during the last week of January, compared to 200 people during the same period a year ago. In Quebec, it's 85 per cent and in B.C., it's 73 per cent. Experts say vaccination rates need to be 90 to 95 per cent in order to achieve herd immunity, which stops the spread of infectious disease.
