Resurgence
of Measles
in the U.S.
easles, the most contagious
infectious disease on earth, was
declared to have been eliminated
in 2000 in the U.S. after decades
of efforts to expand utilization of the MMR
(Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine.
This year, however, measles cases are surging
at a record pace, with 1,022 cases from 28
states reported as of June 6th. Pennsylvania
has recently joined the list, with cases now
confirmed in Lancaster County. There have
been more cases of measles this year in the
U.S. than any other year in the last quarter
century. Why is this happening? Why should
we worry? And what can be done about it?
