There have been 159 cases of measles confirmed across 10 states this year: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington, according to a report released by the CDC on Monday.
By comparison, there were just 120 cases in 2017 and 86 cases in 2016. Both states now allow parents to opt out of the measles immunizations if they have a religious or philosophical objection. "These are so rare it is hard to tell if they are caused by the vaccine", the CDC website says.
In 2018, the USA recorded 372 cases of measles.
Chun said that people who are concerned about contracting measles should talk to their doctor.
"There is no one way to talk about vaccine safety with parents", Grosso said. Contracting measles while pregnant can lead to an increased risk of preterm birth, miscarriage and low birthweight babies.
But even if you survive measles, there are other possible risks.

"These cases haven't happened overnight".
The virus is spreading fast this winter, she says, because of the "pockets of children who have not been vaccinated, mostly due to parents who have decided not to vaccinate them". Meanwhile, Ukraine heads the rating as the country, where the greatest number of the cases of the incidence were spotted as UNICEF reported. About 1 in 20 children with measles will get pneumonia, historically the most common cause of measles-related death in children.
The CDC says worldwide travelers who can not show that they were vaccinated or are otherwise protected against mumps, should get vaccinated before leaving the USA.
"There were 65 cases in Clark County, Washington and then there are four cases in OR that are related to that Washington outbreak", Farr said.
Deaths from measles in the USA are rare.

Mozambique and Nigeria reported more positive vaccine-derived polio samples, all in community contacts of earlier cases, according to a weekly update today from the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI).
There is no cure for measles, but medical care help reduce fever and inflammation, and ensure that a patient is getting enough fluids and nutrition. Dr. Messonnier says a doctor would be able to determine if a child fell into that category. "Whatever decisions they're making, they're making it in the love and best interest of their child", he said. A full course (two shots) of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine is about 97% effective at preventing the disease, while one shot is about 93% effective.
Ong-Lim said that healthcare workers should reassure the population that vaccines are safe interventions against vaccine-preventable diseases. A suggestion that immunization might be tied to severe consequences like autism was debunked years ago, after findings supporting that link were proved fraudulent.
"That may seem high to some, but it's well below the 95% vaccination rate required to protect communities and give them herd immunity", she said.
"I consider it really an irony that you have one of the most contagious viruses known to man, juxtaposed against one of the most effective vaccines that we have, and yet we don't do and have not done what could be done - namely, completely eliminate and eradicate this virus".
"This hesitancy threatens to reverse the progress made in conquering vaccine-preventable diseases".
