Indiana reports 17th measles case

A seventeenth patient has contracted measles in Indiana.  The patient, who was not vaccinated for measles, had travelled outside of the US to an area where the disease is prevalent.

Although 17 cases may seem like a small outbreak, it is actually large compared to the disease’s almost non-existence during the past few years.  Measles is so contagious that those who are not vaccinated are highly susceptible.

Natural selection at its most powerful.
