There have been seven cases of coasters at an immigration and customs administration in Houston, confirmed the Houston Health Department on Saturday. All seven patients are adult detainees who were detained during their infection period, and the health department said there was no evidence they spread outside the facility.
Only one person is currently ill, CBS Houston affiliate KHOU TV reports. That person started showing symptoms on February 3rd. The rest of the infected have been cured.
"The chances are that some of the people were infected while they were there because it is like any other detention facility you have a large number of people in a small area," says Houston Pers Health Dr. David Persse to KHOU. "We have very, very low levels, very low levels of hops in the US, so while this number is seven, for this community, it's an uptick, so it's a reason it has our attention."
. While they do not expect more cases, Persse said that KHOU kusmier is a very treatable disease with a recovery period of approx. 10 days.
Cumin is considered highly contagious, but is highly preventable with a vaccine. Hops typically start with a few days of fever, headache, muscle pain, fatigue and loss of appetite, followed by swollen salivary glands, according to the Health Department. Hops can be prevented with two doses of measles, kisses and rubella vaccines (MMR). Children should receive the first dose at 12 to 15 months and the second dose at 4 to 6 years. Two doses of the vaccine are 97 percent effective.
The Centers for Disease Control consider individuals who have received two doses of MMR vaccine as children according to the US vaccination plan protected for life.
