The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting new cases of the measles.
The agency says at least 228 cases of measles have been reported across the U.S. this year alone. It’s in 12 states now, including California, New York and Texas.
The newest case is in New Hampshire, with one patient as of March 1st.
Two of the larger outbreaks are in Washington State and New York. People in Oregon, Hawaii and Georgia were infected in Washington.
New York reports 11 new cases stemming from an outbreak after an unvaccinated resident became infected abroad.
The disease was eliminated in the U.S. in 2000, but is common in many other countries — which is how the current outbreaks started.
