Measles infections in Europe hit decade high in 2018

The case has not been linked to any other cases at this time, the health department said.

"The virus can stay in a room for two hours after someone with the disease has been in there".

The department did not release any information about the person who contracted measles, citing patient confidentiality.

Vaccination rates for measles, mumps and rubella in Ukraine fell sharply over a number of years during its conflict with Russian Federation, reaching 31% in 2016 - among the lowest in the world.

Measles spreads through direct contact or through the air.

Measles infection typically causes a rash, fever, conjunctivitis (red eyes), cough or runny nose.

This, the HSE says, is why measles outbreaks are occurring in Ireland and across Europe. The Philippines is also battling a major outbreak, with more than 1,800 cases and 26 deaths.

A person can carry measles for up to two weeks before symptoms show. Three times as many people have gotten vaccinated in January - from 200 per day in 2018 to 600 per day in 2019.

Measles is a highly contagious viral disease that can cause hearing loss and brain disorders in children and, in severe cases, can kill.

A report published by the European Commission previous year and compiled by a team led by Ms Larson found measles immunisation coverage had fallen in 12 EU countries since 2010, and seven out of the 10 countries with the lowest vaccine confidence in the world were in Europe.

While families in Madagascar have difficulty accessing the measles vaccine, outbreaks in Europe and the US are often linked to vaccine hesitancy - the reluctance of parents to vaccinate their children because of unfounded fears about the treatment. People who have never received a measles vaccine are susceptible to the disease, which can be deadly. If people aren't vaccinated, the virus can spread easily.

Canada has had a number of measles outbreaks in recent years. The outbreak in Clark County has been concentrated mostly among unvaccinated children.

As the threat of measles has become all too real in Clark County, residents are lining up for vaccines, according to data first reported by Kaiser Health News.

"This outbreak has put people at real risk", said Ann Thomas, public health physician at the Oregon Health Authority.

Children can be vaccinated once they are 12 months old.

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. She notes that in many parts of the country, rates are only estimates, but even still, they point to signs of trouble.
