LOS ANGELES (AP) — More measles cases have been found in California, health officials said Friday.
Figures released by the California Department of Public Health showed there are now 91 confirmed cases in the state, up from 79 on Wednesday.
Of those, 58 infections have been linked to visits to Disneyland or contact with a sick person who went there.
Reluctance to vaccinate or outright refusal continue to rise. Anti-vaxxers are getting a lot of flak with these measles cases, but I doubt it will move the needle on kids (and parents getting vaccinated.)
It's deeply tragic that conspiracist and anti-science and anti-intellectual beliefs are impeding this incredibly powerful, lifesaving technology.
