9 People With Measles Might Have Caught It At Disneyland
Nine people who visited Disneyland last month are confirmed to be infected with measles, with three more unconfirmed cases.Seven California residents and two from Utah, ranging in age from 8-months to 21-years old, are infected with the highly contagious disease, according to the California Department of Public Health. The infected visitors are all known to have visited either Disneyland or California Adventure between December 15 and December 20, 2014, and the in-state patients are from Alameda, Orange, Pasadena, Riverside, and San Diego counties. Authorities have yet to determine the source, but it likely was another park visitor according to NBC 4.
Vaccination has all but eliminated measles in the United States, but Disneyland is a tourist destination for international visitors from countries where the disease remains an epidemic. Of the seven California residents confirmed to be infected, six were not vaccinated, including two children who were too young for the vaccine.
Symptoms of measles include fever, cough, red eyes, and a rash covering the entire body. There is no treatment for measles, which is caused by a virus, and symptoms appear up to two weeks after exposure and can last for about a week.
