PACIFIC NORTHWEST, U.S. - A state of emergency has been declared in Washington State following a measles outbreak.
Cases have now been confirmed in Oregon as well.
Medical experts call it an outbreak boosted by lower-than-normal vaccination rates in an anti-vaccination U.S. "hot spot."
Public health officials in Washington say people may have been exposed to the dangerous disease at more than three dozen locations, including Portland International Airport, a Portland Trail Blazers game, an Amazon locker location and stores such as Costco and IKEA.
