Ohio Measles Outbreak Biggest in U.S. in Almost 20 Years 

A recent measles outbreak in Ohio has reached a total of 68 cases this year, which is the largest in any one state since 1996, USA Today reports. The Ohio outbreak is part of a larger, national problem. According the CDC, as of last week there have been 189 reported cases of measles around the country. Experts blame the surge on adults and children who are not vaccinated for the virus.
