Two More Measles Cases Confirmed in Michigan

Two more cases of measles have been confirmed in the Detroit area.

This time the state says one of them might have exposed others in mid and western Michigan.

Michigan’s Health and Human Services says the two cases are out of Oakland and Detroit area.

These two new cases bring the state’s total to 42.

It’s the highest number of measles cases in the state since 1991.

That’s when 65 cases were reported.

The new cases also had possible exposure locations recently at a gas station in Lansing, and a hotel in Grand Rapids.

Health officials are urging people to get vaccinated if they haven’t received the vaccine in the past.
