The most recent numbers, reported on Monday, show 60 additional cases since seven days earlier.
“This is the best number of cases revealed in the U.S. since 1994 and since measles was announced wiped out in 2000,” the CDC said in a release.
Pennsylvania is the most recent state to join the rundown. It was accounted for a week ago that a Pittsburgh-region man, as of late determined to have the sickness, entered two supermarkets while infectious, neighborhood wellbeing authorities said.
