US Measles Cases Top 700, With Many Illnesses Among Kids
Three-quarters of those who caught the extremely contagious disease are children or teenagers

Measles continues to spread in the United States, with more than 704 cases reported so far this year in 22 states.

U.S. health officials on Monday updated the national tally. It has already eclipsed the total for any full year since 1994, when 963 cases were reported.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this year's count includes 44 people who caught the disease while traveling in another country. Some of them triggered U.S. outbreaks, mostly among unvaccinated people. That includes the largest outbreaks, in Orthodox Jewish communities in and around New York City.

Three-quarters of those who caught the extremely contagious disease are children or teenagers.

No deaths have been reported but 66 patients were hospitalized.

Measles spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

A JetBlue flight that landed at JFK Airport was temporarily quarantined Sunday night after crew members mistook mosquito bites for the measles, sources told The Post.

The bites appeared on a young Orthodox Jewish boy who was aboard Flight 410, which landed around 9 p.m. from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, sources said.

The plane landed with “with reports of an unconfirmed medical condition,” the Port Authority said Monday.

“The passenger, who was previously vaccinated, was evaluated by EMS and cleared,” the PA said.

The flight was immediately quarantined but eventually given the all clear for “normal deplaning,” the PA said.

In a statement, JetBlue said passengers were “requested to hold for medical services out of an abundance of caution so a customer could be examined.”

Among those aboard the flight were dozens of Orthodox Jewish passengers who had visited the Dominican Republic on a Pesach program for Passover, according to the Yeshiva World.

The US is currently experiencing the largest outbreak of measles since 1994, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday. More than 700 cases of the highly contagious disease have been confirmed in 22 states from Jan. 1 to April 26.
