Measles Cases Thus Far In 2024 Already Surpassed 2023 Total

Only three months into 2024, the United States has already seen more cases of measles reported than in all of 2023, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data.

The CDC reported that there have been a staggering 64 measles cases in the U.S. this year as of March 21, while 2023 saw just 58 cases for the entire year. These cases all took place in just 17 states: Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York City, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington state.

Many of these cases took place at just one illegal immigrant shelter in Chicago, Illinois, likely because the illegal aliens in the facility come from poor countries with low vaccination rates.

The outbreak took place among young children of illegal aliens at the Halsted Street shelter in the Chicago neighborhood of Pilsen. City officials — who have been accused of hiding this outbreak from the public, as citizens have grown frustrated over the city’s illegal immigration crisis — have since reported that everyone at the shelter had “recently received a single dose of the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine” and would be receiving a second dose “28 days after the first dose,” according to a press release from the Chicago Department of Public Health.

The CDC also noted that 54 of the reported cases in 2024 have been connected to international travel.

The government health agency has explained that while measles is extremely contagious, the vaccine is very effective.

“Measles (rubeola) is highly contagious; one person infected with measles can infect 9 out of 10 unvaccinated individuals with whom they come in close contact,” the agency noted. “Measles is almost entirely preventable through vaccination. MMR vaccines are safe and highly effective, with two doses being 97% effective against measles (one dose is 93% effective). When more than 95% of people in a community are vaccinated (coverage >95%) most people are protected through community immunity (herd immunity).”

Meanwhile, Americans are frustrated about the sudden outbreaks of diseases that were virtually eradicated in the U.S. until the border crisis allowed unvetted illegal aliens to flood into the country.

Referring specifically to the state of Illinois, popular X account End Wokeness pointed out that there were more “measles infections in the past few weeks than the past 8 years combined. But you didn’t hear about this rapidly growing outbreak because it all comes from the illegal migrant shelters in Chicago.”
