Measles in Disneyland
The “happiest place earth” recently had an outbreak of the disease, measles. Measles are an infectious, viral disease that causes fever and a horrible rash on skin. Majority of the people who got this disease weren't vaccinated. According to www.npr.org “California officials say a measles outbreak that started in Disneyland has sickened 59 people in California and eight more across Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Mexico.” Dr. William Schaffner, an disease expert stated that “No other virus that we know spreads that readily.” Theme parks and crowded places are most likely to have a disease spread and unfortunately Disneyland was one of them. If you want to help to stop the spread, begin with the measles vaccination that will keep you 99% protected from the horrible disease.
