California officials report more measles cases
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - State health officials say the number of flu-related fatalities in the San Francisco Bay area is falling, but warn that measles cases appear to be on the rise.
The California Department of Public Health announced Friday that they have confirmed 15 measles cases statewide.
The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1nWCrRT ) two people were infected with the virus in Contra Costa County, one in Alameda County and one in San Mateo County.
An infected college student from UC Berkeley was one of the Contra Costa County cases, but officials did not say if the other victims were infected by that person. The virus spreads through the air, and symptoms typically begin with a fever followed by a cough, runny nose and watery eyes.
Last week the number of flu deaths throughout California jumped to 278.
