Two new cases of measles related to PDX exposure



PORTLAND, Oregon – The Oregon Health Administration (OHA) reports that two people have been diagnosed with measles after being exposed to the disease on an international flight landing at Portland International Airport.

Health officials say a Lane County resident and visitor to Washington County has been diagnosed with the disease. None of these individuals had been fully vaccinated against measles.

It is reported that the two new cases are on the same international flight as another person already diagnosed with measles and have been reported by the Ministry of Health of Mulnomah County.

The flight landed in Portland on October 1

2th. Previously, the diagnosed individual has recently spent time in countries where measles are common and have not been immunized with the virus.

OHA epidemiologists work with public health staff in both counties to confirm locations where other people may have been exposed.

"Morbidity is a highly contagious disease and it does not have to spread much from one person to another, especially in nearby airline flight quarters," said Anne Thomas, public health physician at OHA. "This is a good reminder of the importance of making sure that all adults and children in your household are up to date on vaccines."

For measles

measles represents the highest risk for non-vaccinated pregnant women, infants under 12 months of age and people with weakened immune systems.

The symptoms of measles begin with fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes, followed by a rash that usually starts on the face and spreads to the rest of the body. Symptoms begin 7–21 days after exposure

Common complications of measles include ear infection, pulmonary infection, and diarrhea. Brain swelling is a rare but much more serious complication.

After someone becomes infected with measles, the disease develops in about two weeks, but people can be infected up to 4 days before getting a rash.

measles is a highly contagious virus that spreads through the air after a person with a cough or sneezes. People are infectious after they have symptoms that usually start about 4 days before the rash, up to 4 days after the rash. The virus can linger in the air for up to two hours after someone who has been infected has left the area.

You are considered immunized with measles if any of the following applies:

  • You were born before 1957.
  • Your doctor has diagnosed you with measles.
  • A blood test proves that you are immunized.
  • You have had 2 doses of measles vaccine.
