Measles Returns From The Brink
The year is not even half over, and there are already nearly as many measles cases in Oregon (five) as all of last year.
Which is a problem, when you consider that public health officials considered the disease "eliminated" 14 years ago.
For a dead disease, 280-plus cases across the country (60 so far in California) this year is a lot.
We visit with the Communicable Disease section of the Oregon Health Authority for details on the disease and the reasons it is returning.
