US: Praise the Lord, and spread the measles virus!

August 27, 2013

The measles outbreak in Tarrant County has jumped to neighboring Denton County, where five new cases were reported Wednesday.

The toll has grown to 20 cases since last Thursday, when Tarrant’s health department reported the first two.

Fifteen of the measles cases are in Tarrant, including four confirmed Wednesday.

“We are on high alert as we’ve seen case counts can cross county lines overnight,” said Carrie Williams, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of State Health Services.

All 20 measles cases so far have been traced to the 1,500-member Eagle Mountain International Church in northeast Tarrant County, health officials said.
