According to NBC News, a passenger traveling through Chicago’s O’Hare airport did so while having measles. They claim the passenger, who remained unnamed, passed through Terminal 1 on the morning of last Wednesday. There are no further details over the matter other than Illinois Health Officials telling the unvaccinated to get vaccinated.
(NBC News) –
If you traveled through Chicago’s O’Hare airport last week and you have not been vaccinated for the measles, you might want to get checked out.
State health officials confirmed a passenger traveling last Wednesday had the highly contagious disease.
The traveler landed from an international flight at terminal five and departed at terminal one.
Officials say that person may have gone to other areas of the airport.
This feels a bit like fear mongering with the end goal to scare people into vaccine lines. Treating one single case of measles like that of Ebola is little more than swindling people.
