Measles Outbreak Will Be Higher Than Last Year, CDC Says

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is keeping its eye on a measles outbreak that covers more than 20 states including Florida.  

The health agency says 107 people have come down with measles.  

The CDC says this year's total is likely to be higher than last year, when 118 cases were reported.  

Measles spreads through the air when infected people cough or sneeze. Symptoms usually show up 10 days to two weeks and include high fever, cough, runny nose, and red eyes followed by a rash that typically starts on the face and spreads to the rest of the body.
