Over the past few weeks, many reports have shown that there are outbreaks of measles at US airports. While the outbreaks can be disturbing, they are mostly paranoia, not a fact.

I had overlooked the titles weeks, while one for my home airport came across my news right after landing in Pittsburgh. Another from Newark on the same day (perhaps this is the inlet before joining Pittsburgh) has been reported. Another LAX case in the immediate vicinity of the others outlines the dates and times of potential exposure, the third exposure in LAX in recent months.
At least one steward has fallen seriously ill in connection with these listed outbreaks. Ten days have been in coma and doctors still hope for a full recovery, but some damage can be long lasting. Negotiation of the disease is serious, dangerous, and has affected the tourist community
In both cases in Pittsburgh and Newark, the affected countries were foreign visitors to the US and probably brought the disease with them. It is estimated that foreign visitors to the US this year will reach 81
million, an average of more than 220,000 each day.  While some may think this is part of the recent US anti-vaccine movement (those who decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children from caring for them) vaccine components or potential side effects), the recent case cited above has come from outside the country. However, those who do not have the vaccine anywhere are at risk of getting measles if they were exposed to these places. Unvaccinated countries that come into contact with the disease have a 90% probability of infection.
Incidents are isolated and statistically nominal
Although this year is the highest year of measles infections in new history, its range remains isolated. Even with 557 cases for the year, it's still far from the mass panic that Aeropar Island Island has created to win the Facebook column and group. In fact, according to the CDC, the last death reported death before 2019 (one case) is in 2015 – another single death.
can see that the cases are relatively limited, but fluctuate from year to year with a spike in 2014 and this year.
Vaccination Reduces Risk
Despite the fact that most Americans are vaccinated, some of their choice did not choose to vaccinate themselves or their children. Some come from countries where this is not a widely accepted practice. The measles vaccine, MMR, is effective at 88-97% depending on the amount and time of dosing, and whether it is treated with measles, mumps or rubella.
"Measles is so contagious that 90% of unvaccinated people coming into contact with an infected person will receive the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The two-dose measles vaccine is 97% effective against the virus, according to the CDC. "
Moreover, if the disease is concluded, the survival rate is very high, especially in the United States. This is not an epidemic
Despite the issue of vaccination, a hotly debated issue in the United States recently the outburst of marine patterns is no more than paranoia. Cases have been elevated but not catastrophic over peaks in previous cycles. The reported cases are most commonly treated successfully, and deaths related to the disease in the United States remain extremely rare.
What do you think? Do the media respond disproportionately to the cases of Mordilles from people who have passed through airports? Is it so serious that the answer is justified?
