US may lose measles elimination status, health experts fear

The US recorded 971 cases of measles in the first five months of 2019, surpassing the total for any year since 1992. The disease has spread mostly among school-age children whose parents declined to get them vaccinated. Communities in New York City’s Brooklyn borough and Rockland County are dealing with measles outbreaks that have lasted nearly eight months.
