New Jersey health officials have confirmed two more cases of measles in a central New Jersey community, with another seven people also suspected of having the virus.

The latest confirmed cases bring the total to six.

Officials say the infected people may have exposed others to the disease while they were at sites in Lakewood between Oct. 25-31. The state health department considers this an outbreak of measles in the community.

 

 

It is not yet known if the people involved are from families who reject vaccinations, or if there is some common element to the spread of the disease among a particular group.

Curiously, one NJ  Official who asked to remain anonymous said "These people don't seem to have good hygiene; and many of them wear the same clothing several days a week."  It was not immediately clear what the term "these people" meant.

Anyone who suspects they were exposed should call a health care provider before going to a medical office or emergency department so special arrangements can be made for an evaluation. This also protects other people and medical staff from possible infection.

Measles is a highly contagious disease. Symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes.
