According to the CDC, there are now 387 confirmed measles cases in the U.S. so far this year. That’s the second highest since the disease was declared eliminated from the US in 2000, and surpasses last year’s total. Outbreaks, which are defined as three or more cases, are ongoing across four states: New York, Washington, New Jersey, and California. International travelers are bringing the virus here from other countries such as Israel, Ukraine and the Philippines, where large outbreaks are occurring.
