In a state of emergency in the state of Washington, Washington, because of the outbreak of measles and injuries to more than twenty, especially children.

The United States announced its eradication in 2000, but cases after that date were related to cases of infection and non-vaccination against the disease.

"Measles are very contagious and can be fatal to young children," said Guy Inzley of Washington. Confirming the existence of more than 26 confirmed cases in Washington, which posed a serious risk to public health, it could spread to other areas.

The outbreak started near Portland earlier this year and quickly spread to neighboring Clark and Kang districts, as in Washington.

Health authorities urged people with the disease not to visit schools, churches, medical clinics, shops, and airports.
