The outbreak was started by a visitor to the church who had recently traveled to a country where measles remains common, according to Tarrant County Public Health spokesman Al Roy.
During the outbreak, children with measles who needed admission were stabilised and admitted to the 'short stay ward', from which they were either discharged home, transferred to another hospital (mild disease), or admitted to the medical wards or Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at RXH (severe disease or other significant co-morbid disease).
The number of cases of measles reported in the United States last year was higher than any year since 1996 -- an increase the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention attributes primarily to an increase in the importation of the disease from other countries and the vulnerability of susceptible, unimmunized people in the community.
In the UK, complications are quite common even in healthy people and approximately 20% of reported measles cases experience some complications and this is why doctors urge people to have the vaccine.
Figures released by the Health Protection Agency reveal 334 confirmed cases of measles up to the end of April in England and Wales.
