State health officials declared a “public health emergency” today after a test confirmed a case of measles in a Dallas County resident.
Officials were asking people who might have been exposed to the person to check their immunization status. They said those possibly exposed include people who were on American Airlines Flight 3965 from Chicago to Des Moines at midday May 11 and people who were in the Des Moines airport’s main terminal or baggage area from 1 to 3:45 p.m. that day. Also, anyone who was at Mercy Central Pediatric Clinic, 330 Laurel St. in Des Moines, after 10 a.m. May
Measles is a very infectious illness caused by rubeola virus. It is an endemic disease so it is continually active in populations and many develop resistance to the virus. However, when exposures occur in areas where the virus has not been present, the result can be devastating.
