Today, the Tennessee Department of Health reported to the Alabama Department of Public Health that an individual with a confirmed measles case traveled through Alabama on April 11 and made two stops during the infectious period, raising the likelihood that measles could appear in the state.

Suffolk County health officials have received their first confirmed case of the measles, authorities announced. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar released a statement regarding the measles outbreak and said that vaccinations are the only way to keep the country safe.

On Friday, President Donald Trump finally spoke out about the measles outbreak, urging people to immunize themselves.

On Wednesday, officials in Rockland County confirmed there are now 200 cases of measles in the area. The cases from there are linked to an outbreak in the Orthodox community in MI. This includes illnesses reported by state health departments to the CDC through April 19 and therefore does not include cases reported since then. "It should be viewed as an embarrassment that so many Americans have turned away from vaccines that we are having a record year for measles".

"Massive combined inoculations to small children is the cause for big increase in autism", Trump said on Twitter in 2012.

In the past, Trump has given some support to the anti-vaccination movement, claiming, for example, that heavy doses given to young infants may be linked to autism.

She says more than 76% of patients were not vaccinated or didn't receive the recommended two doses of vaccine. The measles is spread through coughing and sneezing, and the virus has the ability to live in the air for almost two hours after an infected person coughs or sneezes, thus infecting mass numbers of defenseless people in a short period of time.

"We are fighting a disease now in 2019 that should have been off the table in the 1960s with the development of the vaccine", he said. "Many countries are now experiencing widespread measles activity".
