PORTLAND, OREGON, (AP) – The number of cases confirmed by sauce near the city of Portland increased from 25 to 30 on Friday, and other nine suspects to suffer from the illness.
The boom of the salad was imposed by a lower than usual vaccine rate in which it was identified as the heat of anti-vaccination opponents in the United States.
Healthy officials in the southwestern state of Washington, across the Columbia River, said people could be exposed to a dangerous illness in more than thirty places, including Portland International Airport, the NBA run the Trail Blazers, Amazon Locker site and in stores like Ikea and Costco.
Twenty-six of the confirmed patients were not vaccinated against the sauces, and it does not know what is the vaccination of four others that have become infected. One person was hospitalized.
Most of the cases involve children under 10 years, the Clark County Department of Public Health said in a statement. Adult is infected and the rest are adolescents.
The governor of Washington Jay Inslee declared a state global crisis on Friday and authorities in neighboring states of Idaho and Oregon also posted attentions to residents.
The number of cases "creates an important health risk that could spread rapidly to other counties," said Inslee.
