The number of measles cases in the United States climbed again this week, bringing the number to 880 cases across 24 states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The number is up by 41 cases since last week, and it has now spread to a 24th state, Oklahoma. The rate of new cases across the country has slowed in the past week.

The article goes on to state the following:

The person with the measles in Oklahoma caught the disease after traveling internationally. Oklahoma public health officials are working to identify anybody who came into contact while the person was contagious. There is no information if the person had been vaccinated.

The total number of cases is inching closer to the record 963 cases reported across the U.S. in 1994. The current outbreak is still the largest since the disease was declared eliminated in 2000.
