The measles outbreak continues across the country with Ohio becoming the latest state with a confirmed case of the disease.
Ohio State Epidemiologist Sietske de Fijter said Friday that a new case has been confirmed in Stark County. People who are unvaccinated are at risk, she says.
Measles is extremely contagious said de Fijter. “Over 90 percent of individuals who are unprotected are unvaccinated, and who get exposed to the measles virus will come down with the disease.”
She said vaccination is the best form of prevention.
