Tourist With Measles Made Contact With 32 People in New York City

Health officials Tourist infected with measles visited Met attractions in Manhattan Brooklyn upstate

The New York State health department is warning people across three counties they may have been exposed to measles earlier this month, CBS New York reports.

The infected tourist started his Manhattan visit at a La Quinta Inn on West 71st Street on February 16 and stayed until the 19th.

The infected individual was a participant on an "Oasis Bible Tour group", and the areas he visited since February 16 are highlighted as a health risk for possible contamination.

Best Western Hotel, 1324 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, from February 19 until 12:00 p.m. on February 20, 2018.

These times reflect the period that the infected individual was in these areas and a two-hour period after the individual left the area, as the virus remains alive in air and on surfaces for up to two hours. Individuals who frequently travel, or have visited Manhattan recently, should be aware of the symptoms, which include but are not limited to: muscle pain, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, skin rash, cough, sore throat, and runny nose.

Measles is notoriously contagious for people without immunity to the disease, with a 90 percent infection rate for nonimmunized people who venture near an active spreader, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mack Beggs: Transgender Wrestler Booed After 2nd State Title Win
When he won the state title Saturday, the boos were overtaken by cheers, not that he lets the reception he receives affect him. However, it appears that Beggs would like to jump from one controversy into another - competing as a boy instead of as a girl.

At this point, if you are digging into your vaccination records, immunization for the disease may show up as MMR - the common cocktail immunization for measles, mumps and rubella. The 57 individuals who were affected at the time were all unvaccinated. That danger is also less for people who have been vaccinated versus it. An outbreak of measles was reported in 2013 when an orthodox Jewish community living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn was affected. Individuals may still be vaccinated later in life, according to DOH.

To reduce the risk of transmission, the Department of Health is advising that individuals with suspected exposure and symptoms consistent with measles contact their clinic, emergency department, or provider prior to going for care.

According to the city officials in NY, the small population of unvaccinated individuals need to be extra careful over the next couple of weeks because an Australian individual with suspected measles has arrived in the city. Since August 1990, college students have also been required to demonstrate immunity against measles. In 2016, there were 89,780 measles deaths worldwide, the first year the figure dipped below six figures, the World Health Organization said.

The risk for some serious can is higher in the children.

From Jan. 1-27, nine people from four states-Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Texas-were reported to have measles, the CDC said.
