Measles found in two more states as outbreak grows to 1,022 cases

The country’s worst measles outbreak in over 25 years has spread to two more states in the past week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There have been 41 new cases of measles in the past week, bringing the total to 1,022 cases as of June 6.

For the first time in the current outbreak, cases of measles were confirmed in Virginia and Idaho this week. There are now confirmed cases in 28 states across the country.

The current outbreak through the first five months of this year is already the worst since 1992, and federal health officials have warned the country is at risk of losing its measles elimination status. Measles was declared eliminated in 2000, but this year’s outbreaks have been worsened by anti-vaccine groups that spread misinformation among vulnerable groups.

1. Damn. There are some mommies who are about to discover it isn't just a little rash w/ little fever

It's watching as the little guy goes glassy-eyed with a fever that spikes to 104, and gets scary "fever dreams."
