Clark County, Washington - where the outbreak began on December 31 - reported Wednesday that is has identified 13 additional suspected cases, including four in unvaccinated people who had contact with contagious individuals.

For information about additional exposure sites in Oregon, linked to the confirmed case in Multnomah County, visit the Oregon Health Authoritymeasles webpage.

Graham did say the State Health Department has confirmed that every Washington case of measles since the first confirmed case has matched the same wild strain of measles the first case had. Specimens for this suspect case are being sent to a specialized laboratory out of state to confirm measles, but it can take more than a week to get the results.

World Health Organization said the historic annual figure was three times higher than that of 2017 and 15 times greater than the record low reported in 2016. One day without a new measles case might seem an indicator of hope the outbreak is over, but it unfortunately doesn't necessarily indicate the end. Before the MMR vaccine was developed, mumps was the most common cause of both meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) and acquired deafness in the U.S. In men, mumps can infect the testicles, which can lead to infertility.

Although there have been no cases reported at the University of Portland, Kaylin Soldat, family nurse practitioner at the Health and Counseling Center, wants students and parents to know how crucial vaccinations are.

In 34 of the countries, estimated coverage with a second dose of measles vaccine was below 95 per cent. According to the aforementioned study, other areas that are considered hotspots include Phoenix, Arizona; Salt Lake City, Utah; Provo, Utah; Fort Worth, Texas; Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; and Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

And leading health officials are stressing the importance of getting vaccinated. Following the 2014-2015 California measles outbreak in Anaheim, which occurred in a population with a measles vaccination rate ranging from 50% to 86, officials passed a measure banning non-medical exemptions statewide.

Looking Ahead Where will the next big measles outbreak spring up in the United States?

While more children in Europe are being vaccinated against measles than ever before, progress has been "uneven" between countries and individual countries have some patches where vaccine take-up is low, it said.

"There's no reason we should be having this outbreak", says Melnick.
