Measles case confirmed in Vancouver; not linked to Washington outbreak

Rep. Monica Stonier D-Vancouver lower left and Rep. Laurie Jenkins D-Tacoma right listen Frida

Health officials have reported at least 52 known cases in the state.

Stefanson says if anyone is concerned they are infected they should report to their doctor, but call ahead first so they can take precautions to isolate them and protect other patients.

The health authority last released a measles alert in September, when a person who was infected attended the Skookum Festival. Typically, measles patients can be treated at home, rather than in hospitals, Hussain said.

The DOH recently declared a measles outbreak in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Western and Eastern Visayas. As of Saturday, 54 cases had been confirmed.

There are four confirmed cases in OR, all in Multnomah County. Complications can include inflammation of the brain, convulsions, deafness, brain damage and death.

People who have had the infection don't need to be immunized.

Measles, caused by a virus that infects the respiratory tract, can be passed through direct contact and through the air.

Measles symptoms begin with a high fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes, followed by a rash that usually begins at the head and spreads to the rest of the body.

An estimated 700 people, majority opposed to stricter requirements, lined up before dawn in the cold, toting strollers and hand-lettered signs, to sit in the hearing, which was so crowded that staff opened up additional rooms to accommodate the crowd.

The report comes as both Canada and the United States face another year of measles outbreaks such as one now underway in Washington State and OR, where support for anti-vaccination has been notable.

House Bill 1638, would look to eliminate those personal and philosophical exemptions as related to the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine - more commonly known as the MMR vaccine - but would allow for religious and medical exemptions.

Vancouver Coastal Heatlh recommends anyone who isn't sure on their immunization or disease history to be vaccinated.

The agency said there have been large measles outbreaks reported across Europe which have affected many countries.
