State of Emergency in NYC After Extensive Measles Outbreaks

Third case of measles confirmed in Connecticut State officials reduce measles count from 41 to 39

"We can not allow this unsafe disease to make a comeback here in New York City", de Blasio said.

New York City declares a state of public health emergency in Brooklyn as the measles outbreak has reached at least 285 cases. De Blasio has declared a public health emergency and has called for mandatory vaccinations.

His order instructs that all unvaccinated children and adults that live, work, and go to school in the area must get vaccinated, unless they can prove that they have a medical exemption.

Hours earlier, the health departments retracted a previously confirmed measles case in Washtenaw County, saying a false positive test result incorrectly identified a vaccine reaction as a case of measles. NY has always been an American haven for Jews escaping persecution elsewhere and still has a very high Jewish population, including tight communities of Hasidic and Orthodox Jews that have lived there for years.

The reason that these yeshivas were given their very own call-out decree is because numerous children (most of the reported cases are children under the age of 18) that have been infected are part of the Orthodox Jewish community in NY. Currently, New York's MMR vaccination rate is at 91.1 percent, below the 94 percent requirement to achieve herd immunity.

'This outbreak is being fueled by a small group of anti-vaxxers in these neighborhoods. "They have been spreading unsafe misinformation based on fake science".

During a press conference, officials also confirmed the presence of "measles parties", where parents are bringing their unvaccinated children together to expose them to measles, thereby hopefully keeping them safe from the disease later on, but NYC Health Commissioner Dr Oxiris Barbot warned strongly against this practice. Measles has increased by 30 per cent globally, killing more than 100,000 people annually.

Everyone potentially exposed at the above sites is already outside of the time period for the MMR to prevent infection in unvaccinated, exposed individuals (72 hours).

Officials from the Department of Health will check vaccination records of anyone who has been in contact with infected patients in certain parts of Brooklyn, officials said. All but 39 of the confirmed cases are in children. "I believe the CDC and state and local agencies are up to the task".

People born before January 1, 1969 are likely to be immune because measles used to be quite common and so this older age group does not need measles immunisation.

"If anyone had been infectious this would have spread like wildfire among those who had not been vaccinated".

There is heightened alert at the island's airports and seaports owing to an outbreak of measles in the United States, Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton has said.
