Measures grow in the northwestern United States to 31
Portland, Oregon, USA – The number of cases confirmed by the sauce near the city of Portland increased on Friday 31, and another nine suspects to have the illness.
The surge of sauces was increased from lower than usual vaccine rate in what was identified as a breeding ground for anti-vaccine adversaries in the United States.
Healthy officials in southwestern Washington, across the Columbia River, said people could be exposed to the dangerous illness in more than thirty places, including Portland International Airport, the NBA 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 the vaccination of four others that had not been infected. One little was hospitalized.
Case was confirmed in King County, where the city of Seattle is located, and one was confirmed Friday night in Multnomah District, where Portland is sitting.
Most cases involve children under 10 years, the Clark County Department of Public Health said in a statement. One of the infected is adult and the rest are adolescents. Oregon's authorities did not provide the age of the infected adult.
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.
The sauce vaccine was part of the plan of vaccination of childhood for decades, and the disease was declared eliminated by the United States in 2000.
But speech is still a big problem in other parts of the world. The travelers infected abroad can bring the virus to the country and spread it, causing periodic explosions.
Last year there were 17 explosions and 350 cases of sauce in the United States.
Before the vaccine, between 400 and 500 people died of sauce annually in the country, 50,000 people were hospitalized and 4,000 developed brain inflammations that could cause deafness, said Dr. Alan Melnick, director of public health for Clark County, on Friday.
Clark County, which includes Washington's resident residence, in Washington, ? It has a vaccine index of 78%, well below the 92% or 94% that is required for the so-called "collective immunity", said Marissa Armstrong, spokesman of the Department of Health.
Collective immunity is achieved when individuals who are vaccinated are protected by infection because almost all of them have been vaccinated, and they become immune to the disease.
The virimeter virus that dispersed by cough or tension, can remain in the air for up to two hours in an isolated space. Ninety percent of people exposed to misery that have not been vaccinated, become ill, responsible for health.
