New York in the Midst of Large Outbreak of Mumps
Article courtesy of Politico

There have been 63 cases of mumps reported at SUNY New Paltz during the fall semester, according to the state’s Department of Health, part of a nationwide spike in the virus that has state and federal officials reminding people of the importance of vaccinations.

Through Dec. 9, New York State reported 147 confirmed or probable cases of mumps, the most since 2010 and a six-fold increase from the 24 cases documented in all of 2015. Across the country, there have been more than 4,000 cases of mumps, the most since 2006 and more than three times as many as were reported in 2015. Roughly half of those cases come from a rapidly growing outbreak in Arkansas, which has public health officials concerned because the majority of people suffering symptoms have been immunized.
