MI tells students: worldwide visitor has measles

Child with measles

De Blasio ordered mandatory vaccinations in the Orthodox neighborhoods.

De Blasio says that the emergency spans four different ZIP codes around NYC. The New York City-area measles outbreaks are thought to have started when unvaccinated people traveled to Israel, where there is a large measles outbreak, the CDC said. "We have to stop it now", added Mayor Bill de Blasio. He also added that we need to take this seriously because the situation has now become endangering to the lives of children.

"They were very clear that they will unequivocally deny any parent who does not vaccinate their children", he said.

The department says both had been recently vaccinated and had symptoms and initial test results that classified them as measles cases.

The commissioner is empowered by law to issue such orders in cases when they might be necessary to protect against a serious public health threat.

Brooklyn is a borough in New York City known for its tight-knit, ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. Measles is highly contagious and is spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing. It is because tight religious communities that are isolated from society are more likely to experience flare ups because they build up a lack of immunity over time. Those who refused to get immunized within 48 hours will risk receiving violation tickets or incurring fines of $1,000. "They have been spreading risky misinformation based on fake science", said Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot.

Caused by a virus that replicates in the nose and throat of an infected child or adult, the virus circulates worldwide and about 90 per cent of susceptible people (persons not vaccinated) who are exposed to someone with the virus will be infected, says the MOH brief.

However, health officials encourage all Michiganders to check and update their measles vaccination. Measles has increased by 30 per cent globally, killing more than 100,000 people annually. The schools are mandated to keep all unvaccinated children out, and any that continue to ignore the decree will be fined and potentially face closure. "Anti-vaxxers" have been effective in spreading misinformation about the safety of vaccines, including a now-debunked study that falsely linked the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine to autism. Measles was eradicated from the United States in 2000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This leads to cases that arise in the U.S. after being picked up in another country, and that quickly spread to unvaccinated people that didn't think they would ever encounter it. From January of 2018 to today the Florida Department of Health reports just 11 confirmed cases.
