Number of cases in measles outbreak jumps to 14

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. - The number of cases in Indiana's recent measles outbreak is now up to 14.

A Noblesville city employee was diagnosed Friday. Right now, all 14 cases are in Boone and Hamilton counties.

State health officials say they've traced the outbreak back to a couple that was infected during a recent trip overseas. Doctors say the best way to prevent infection is through vaccination.

Dr. Andrew Rachual of MedCheck Community Health Network says "measles is in this area and it is very infectious; it h as above a 90% infectious rate if you come in contact with it, but that's if you're unvaccinated. With a vaccine, you have close to 99% immunity."

Signs of infection include a fever, cough, and runny nose. Followed by a rash on the face and upper neck.

The Indiana State Department of Health has established a hotline to help answer questions from the general public from 8:15a.m. to 4:45p.m. daily at 877-826-0011.
