Today, both the New York City Department of Health and the NY State Department of Health released updated measles numbers, just following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) release of national data on Monday.

New York state accounts for 860 cases between the outbreak in the Brooklyn/Queens area and counties outside NYC.
