From January 1 to September 5, 2019, 1,241 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 31 states. This is an increase of 19 cases from the previous week. However, only one of these cases was recently ill. The rest were identified as past cases. This is the greatest number of cases reported in the U.S. since 1992. More than 75% of the cases this year are linked to outbreaks in New York. Measles is more likely to spread and cause outbreaks in U.S. communities where groups of people are unvaccinated. The majority of cases are among people who were not vaccinated against measles.
