21 measles cases linked to megachurch in Texas DALLAS A Texas megachurch linked to at least 21 measles situations has been attempting to contain the outbreak by hosting vaccination clinics, officials said Monday . The outbreak started when a person who contracted measles overseas visited Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, located about 20 miles north of Fort Worth, Texas. Officials with area wellness departments said those suffering from the outbreak range in age from 4-a few months to 44-years-old. All of the school-aged kids with measles were homeschooled, and majority of those who were infected had not been vaccinated. In a recently available sermon posted online, senior pastor Terri Pearsons motivated those who haven’t been vaccinated to take action, adding that the Aged Testament is full of precautionary measures.

‘Hence we are encouraging the general public to donate bloodstream to be equipped for any dependence on a transfusion, specially if it is the children who will require it’, Dayrit said. Health officials also urged the continuous and regular bloodstream donation by healthful volunteer donors to ensure blood security and adequacy in the country. A sufficient way to obtain safe blood is among the cornerstones of a good healthcare system, they said, aside from being a powerful device in preventing disease transmission. In a related development, the DOH joins the World Health Firm in its first global celebration of Globe Blood Donor Time and thanksgiving on June 14, Monday, for voluntary bloodstream donors around the world for donating blood openly without any reward.
