KANSAS CITY MEASLES OUTBREAK!!!
Like it or not, Kansas City health is actually in decline amid the age of Obamacare. Even worse, a great deal of the spread of local disease can be blamed on advocates and conspiracy theorists against vaccinations AND NOT JUST THE MEXICANS everybody likes to scapegoat for everything wrong.
Officials confirm 13 measles cases in KC area
Thirteen cases of the measles in the metro confirmed, two more cases probable
"The people who have the disease have been asked to stay at home until it's clear that they won't infect anyone else. Health officials are providing them with vaccinations or immune globulin, to help fight off their potential infections.
Investigators had previous found a handful of cases in Clay County, Missouri, and Johnson County, Kansas. The people involved in the Clay County cases had recently returned from an overseas trip.
Experts urged people to make sure their children get the MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps and rubella, or another version that also protects recipients from chicken pox."
Thankfully, the fear of this thing spreading is low and it looks like the local health dept. is on top of it . . . Which is nice even if antibacterial soap is probably gonna kill your germaphobe friends.
