USA, Illinois (Chicago) - Measles outbreak - 2024
« on: March 25, 2024, 03:15:39 pm »
SUMMARY - The number of measles cases in Chicago has since risen to 26, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health, which includes four new cases just this week (March 24 through March 30).

NOTE - An earlier topic in this section also detailed the rise in Chicago measles cases. As that article summary also contained the state of Arizona, I have started a Chicago-specific topic.

ANOTHER NOTE - The original subject title for this thread was "USA, Illinois (Chicago) - 26 measles cases in total in 2024." It has been changed to reflect the evolving nature of the outbreak in Chicago.
