Five people in the Houston area are confirmed as having measles. Three of those cases are in Harris County.
Health officials say two boys under two years old, and a 25 to 35-year-old woman are infected.
All three live in northwest Harris County, although officials couldn’t disclose whether the cases are related.
Infectious disease expert Dr Peter Hotez calls the cases concerning.
“When measles epidemics have occurred . . . to me that could be a potentially worrisome sign that this outbreak in Harris County might be continuing for a while,” he says.
