The latest as Chicago Midway Airport passengers are warned they might have been exposed to measles. A passenger might have exposed people to measles at the airport and at a Chicago-area hospital this the past week.
They did not indicate where the flight was from but the person went to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital.
People might have been exposed to the disease, the health department said, if they were at:
- Midway Airport from 9 p.m. to midnight on February 22.
- Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital's emergency department from 11:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Sunday.
- Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital from 4 to 6:15 p.m. Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday.
"These are the only known public locations in Illinois where exposures occurred," the health department said in a statement.
Anyone infected in this case could develop symptoms as late as March 20, the department said.
159 cases in the US and counting, it's not going down...
These outbreaks were predicted, almost down to the community, just under a year ago.
Causation and correlation, with out a doubt.
