The report from ABC11 also stated the following:
This number will likely outpace the number of measles cases reported in 2017.
There were 118 cases in 2017, and only 86 the year before that.
The last outbreak was in 2015 when 188 people contracted measles.
The outbreak was linked to an amusement park in California where it is thought that a traveler from overseas brought it to the U.S.
