Disneyland Measles Outbreak Spreads Across Country 


Disneyland: it used to be the happiest place on earth and now it’s just a fetid wasteland of contagious disease. The number of measles cases from the Disneyland outbreak almost doubled this week. At least 85 cases are now confirmed in seven states, the latest in Nebraska. Health officials in Alaska are currently monitoring another potential case in Alaska.

According to CBS:

Alaska health officials are closely monitoring 1-year-old Rivki Webb after she tested positive for measles this week. Her mother, Emily, said the family had just returned from a visit to Southern California.
Rivki had also just received the measles vaccine, which can cause similar symptoms. Dr. Monique Karaganis is her pediatrician.
“There was DNA of measles in this child, and we need to now sort out if that is connected to the outbreak in California or not,” Karaganis said.

In what might sound like the most ominous warning ever, California’s state epidemiologist, Dr. Gilberto Chavez, said “If you are not vaccinated, stay away from Disneyland.”
