    State health officials say the first person to contract measles in the latest outbreak was someone from outside the country.

    That person, according to State Epidemiologist Dr. Scott Lindquist, came into contact with a large group of un-vaccinated children.

    "All those kids that were un-immunized went to public places like Ikea, Costco and a Portland Trailblazers game," he said

    The Washington Health State Department shot down speculation that Clark County’s measles outbreak has a confirmed “patient zero” on Wednesday.

    As the county’s confirmed measles cases rose to 51, along with 13 suspected cases, and two new exposure dates, Julie Graham, a public information officer with the state health department, said that “patient zero” is not a term the department even uses. Some media outlets have reported “patient zero” was from another country. Graham said those reports are inaccurate.

    “The concept of patient zero was a term that someone coined that doesn’t have any scientific meaning for us,” she said.
    Graham did say the State Health Department has confirmed that every Washington case of measles since the first confirmed case has matched the same wild strain of measles as the first confirmed case. That strain is currently circulating in Eastern Europe.

    But that doesn’t mean the child was “patient zero” of the outbreak, Armstrong said, because the fact that they were the first confirmed case by Public Health does not mean they were the source of the local outbreak.

    Given that SeaTac and PDX are both international airports (Portland being close to the border with Washington) it should not be surprising that the likely source came here legally, whether for business, university education, or tourism. That's how the 2014 (IIRC) Disneyland measles outbreak was caused.
