Via CTV News: As many as 100 kids in Fraser Valley, B.C. may have measles. Excerpt:
Two unvaccinated children in B.C.'s Fraser Valley have contracted the extremely contagious measles virus, putting others in the community at risk.
The exposure occurred at a school in Chilliwack, B.C., in a community with traditionally low immunization rates, Fraser Health's Chief Medical Health Officer (CMHO) said in a statement released Saturday and updated Monday.
The potential for this virus to spread as a result is very concerning, the statement said.
Two confirmed cases have been reported in the city, approximately 100 kilometres east of Vancouver, but Fraser Health is following up as many as 100 suspected cases among children in the community.
CBC Radio News says 80 of the suspected cases are in the religious community, and 20 in the larger community.
