    The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) announced on Tuesday that the measles outbreak has now spread to a fourth county in the south of the state and the number of cases has increased to 60.

    Fifty-one cases have been diagnosed in Hennepin County, and three have been diagnosed in Ramsey County, both of which are in metropolitan Minneapolis-St. Paul. Four cases have been diagnosed in Crow Wing County in the northern part of the state. Now two cases have been diagnosed in Le Sueur County in the south of the state.

    Fifty of the sixty cases “are Somali Minnesotan.”

    Fifty-seven are “in children (ages 0-17 years).” Three “cases are in adults.”

    Fifty-seven are “confirmed to be unvaccinated. 1 had 1 dose of MMR. 2 had 2 doses of MMR,” MDH reported

    The 57 children who have it will recover, probably with no long-lasting effects, unless they scratched their sores and have some scars.

    It's the 3 adults that are at risk to be severely ill. If any of them are pregnant women, there are risks of birth defects.

    People entering this country need to be immunized. If they are coming from some third world hellhole that not even missionaries want to visit, like Somalia, they need to have the immunization process explained to them so that they don't hide from it. It's what we do here, and it prevents a lot of illness.
