You probably know that the U.S. has broken the record for number of measles cases in recent years. You also likely know that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says “high coverage” with measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine is the most effective way to limit the spread of measles.

Here are some other facts CDC released this week about the 2019 outbreak:

  • 67% of cases are in New York City and New York state.
  • All of the original sources of infection are foreign countries.
  • The most number of cases came in from the Philippines, followed by Ukraine.
  • So far, there are no reports of measles-related brain damage or death, which are very rare.
