New York state is in the midst of an outbreak measles. The vaccine-preventable childhood disease really shouldn’t really exist in the U.S. any longer. But Gizmodo reports New York health officials say the state has seen more than 100 cases since last September. During the current outbreak, there have been at least 55 confirmed cases in Brooklyn, and 105 cases in Rockland County. Mainly affecting Orthodox Jewish people, the outbreak likely began when unvaccinated individuals brought it back from Israel. Orthodox Jews, as a whole, do not shun vaccination. But antivaxxers aren’t the only reason for the outbreak.
