Measles outbreak now at 880 cases, with the fastest growth still in New York



This year, 880 measles cases were reported, already the largest since 1994 federal health officials on Monday.

Last week, a further 41 cases were reported for the control and prevention of disease. Of these, 30 were in the state of New York, which has the strongest outbreak in the country, mainly in Orthodox Jewish communities.

Most of these new cases were New York City and nine were located in the suburb of Rockland County.

Meanwhile cases have been registered in 24 states.

It's still too early to say if the outbreak slows down, a CDC spokesman said. In New York, the transmission of the virus seemed to slow down for a short time in January, but accelerated in February.
