Four measles cases linked to Mt Maunganui, Bay of Plenty

A new case of the measles has been confirmed in Washtenaw County, bringing the total cases in MI to 41.

New details on the measles outbreak in MI as a Detroit school district is working to contain one of its own.

This follows the one case that was confirmed in the region yesterday, following outbreaks in Christchurch and Auckland.

Exposure locations are not yet available for the Washtenaw County case and will be provided as more information is learned at washtenaw.org/health.

All the Bay of Plenty cases occurred over the past three weeks, a Toi Te Ora Public Health pānui said.

In the letter, Dahlman wrote there is no treatment for the highly contagious disease, and once your child shows early symptoms it is too late to intervene.

Cinemark Theaters at 801 East Ave. during the movie "Hotel Mumbai" from 7 to 10 p.m. Back in the mid-20th century, measles cases in the United States numbered in the hundreds of thousands per year, but, by 1970, the disease had been almost eradicated thanks to the introduction of a vaccine for it. Those susceptible to measles include children under one year of age, the unvaccinated, those with weakened immune systems and people born in or after 1970 who never received a measles-containing vaccine. After two doses, nearly 100 percent are immune.

"MDHHS follows Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance and does not recommend routine measles vaccinations for children less than 12 months of age unless there is a suspected measles exposure; there is thought to be an imminent measles exposure such as being in areas of known measles; or global travel planned".

The vaccine that protects against measles is the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine.

What are the symptoms of measles? People then develop spots inside their mouth and sometimes a rash and a sudden fever spike, according to the CDC.
