Everyone prepare to be afraid…
Texas Health Officials have reported the potential that “tens of thousands” of people may have been exposed to Mumps. The report claims that one person infected with Mumps attended the National Cheerleaders Association All-Star National Championship in Dallas.
They are claiming that this one individual has put at risk persons from 39 states and nine countries. Letters have been disseminated by the Texas Department of State Health Services to all persons who attended the events, according to Dallas News.
They are saying it may be “a matter of time” before more infections arise, however, so far, no one has reportedly been infected.
