An El Paso pediatrician received multiple calls this week from concerned parents as the city continues to see an increase in measles cases, according to a KFOX14 report. The concerns are valid. The El Paso Health Department confirmed the city’s fourth case in less than two weeks Wednesday affecting a male toddler. Before the recent outbreak, according to the city’s Health Department, it’s been 25 years since the last case of measles in El Paso.
The three other reported cases involve two other male toddlers and an adult woman. The toddlers were confirmed unvaccinated, but the woman’s record is unknown, according to KFOX14. Further, officials said the infected group is not related. more here
