TEST ARTICLE Measles outbreak: Counties in Illinois, Florida and Texas among those at highest risk of disease, say Johns Hopkins researchers

A part of the reason cases are on the rise is because of a growing fear of vaccines among people, despite the fact that an estimated 20 million lives have been saved by immunization from the disease due to vaccines since 2000

While we're not even halfway through 2019, the number of cases of Measles reported across the US this year is already a concerning 764. To put that into perspective, the total number of reported cases in the entirety of 2018 was 349. In 2017, that number was 120, and a year before that, just 86. The year 2014, when the total number of cases was 667, was the last time the number of breakouts was so concerning.

 

In a bid to help concerned authorities combat the threat, researchers from Johns Hopkins University have put together a list of the top 25 potential hotspots for outbreaks where they can focus their efforts.

The research was published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases and identifies which parts of the US are at the most risk based on a model they developed based on the country's population size, the rate of non-medical vaccination exemptions, their access to international air travel to other at-risk countries, and incidence rates of infections in those destinations.

The model, which has successfully predicted the outbreaks that have already been seen this year in New York and Oregon, listed out a number of counties at high risk of seeing measles cases rise in the coming months. Unsurprisingly, most lie adjacent to areas that have already experienced outbreaks.
