On the latest Outbreak News This Week, I look at news from Florida and then expand to national and international news, and a little research.
The Florida hepatitis A outbreak keeps adding up and we look at the latest on that. I also look at research that lists the 25 counties most at risk for a measles outbreak and our own Hillsborough County made that list.
I touch on a recent Publix recall and some mosquito control news out of South Florida.
University of Florida researchers developed new global anthrax maps and I take a look at that.
Internationally, I look at the rat hepatitis E virus cases reported in Hong Kong and the measles situation in the Philippines.
Nationally, the Kentucky teen who refused to get vaccinated and sued the health department, contracted chickenpox (and you’ll love what his lawyer said!) and an anti-vaxxer conference was held in Rockland County, NY.
