Measles-stricken New Zealand girl visited Disneyland, other California destinations

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A teenage girl from New Zealand sick with measles visited Disneyland and other popular tourist stops across Southern California earlier this month, possibly infecting others, local government health officials warned.

The alert comes amid the worst outbreak of measles in the United States in a quarter century, with more than 1,200 cases reported across 30 states since October 2018, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is looking to identify others who are at risk for measles and may have been exposed to a non-resident measles case that traveled to Los Angeles County while infectious,” the health department said in an advisory on Friday night.

The Orange County Health Care Agency said that the girl was in Southern California from Aug. 11 to Aug. 15. 

During her stay in Southern California the girl visited the Universal Studios Theme Park and several destinations in Hollywood and Santa Monica, Los Angeles health officials said, adding that anyone who was also at those locations may be at risk of developing measles.

Orange County health officials said she visited Disneyland in Anaheim on Aug. 12 and stayed at the nearby Desert Palms Hotel. There was no information on her current condition. 

So far in 2019 a total of 16 measles cases have been reported among Los Angeles County residents, and 11 infected people are known to have traveled through the county. 

The CDC said earlier this week that there had been a 1.8% increase in the number of cases of the highly contagious and sometimes deadly virus in the United States between Aug. 8 and Aug. 15. 

The disease was declared eliminated in the United States in 2000, meaning there was no continuous transmission for at least a year. CDC officials say the United States risks losing its measles elimination status if the current outbreak, which began in October 2018 in New York state, continues until October 2019. 

Measles, considered one of the most contagious viruses in the world, infects 90% of exposed people who have not been immunized, according to the Los Angeles County Health Department.

Symptoms of the virus, which can cause severe complications and even death, include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes and a characteristic rash which can appear up to three weeks following exposure.

A TV reporter for the local Fox affiliate in New Orleans was killed on Friday when the stunt plane she was filming a piece in crashed near Lakefront Airport.

Nancy Parker, 53, had worked for the station for 23 years, WVUE said.

Franklin J.P. Augustus, the pilot of the plane, was also killed.

“This information is preliminary and subject to change as the investigation continues: Earlier today, a Pitts A-2B aircraft crashed under unknown circumstances, approximately one-half mile south of Lakefront Airport, New Orleans,” the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. “The NTSB will lead the investigation, and the FAA’s investigation will become part of the NTSB’s series of reports.”

Parker was filming a piece about Augustus, who was honoring the pioneering World War II-era African American pilots the Tuskegee Airmen, the station said.

The Dominican Republic resort where a Delaware woman claims she was brutally beaten and left for dead has temporarily closed due to low occupancy, according to Delaware Online.

Tammy Lawrence-Daley, 51, shared a now-viral Facebook post in May saying she had been attacked while staying at the Majestic Elegance Punta Cana resort in January.

The post, which included gruesome photos of Lawrence-Daley’s battered face, described an attack by an unknown man who she said choked her repeatedly, kicked her in the head and dragged her down a flight of stairs. Lawrence-Daley said the assault occurred while she was walking in a rotunda between two of the hotel’s buildings.

Now, Majestic Resorts is closing its Punta Cana hotel, saying it has lost thousands of visitors since numerous stories of American tourists dying or being injured while visiting the Dominican Republican began surfacing earlier this year.

A Utah teenager died on Monday after being hit by falling rocks while vacationing with her family at Glacier National Park in northwest Montana.

The family was riding in their vehicle at around 7 p.m. when multiple rocks came crashing down from a nearby mountain, landing on the vehicle’s roof and shattering the rear window, park officials said.

The 14-year-old girl died before she could make it the hospital.

“A.L.E.R.T. air ambulance responded, but was unable to airlift the girl because of her unstable condition,” the park said in a statement Tuesday. “Flight paramedics traveled with her via ground ambulance to Kalispell, MT. The girl died while being transported to a local hospital.”

Hong Kong airport struggles to reopen amid flight cancellations

Search Hong Kong Flights and Hotels

 
Hong Kong’s airport struggled to reopen on Tuesday with more than 300 flights cancelled, a day after a pro-democracy protest brought the air transport hub to a complete standstill.

The city’s leader Carrie Lam denounced the demonstrations saying that “lawbreaking activites in the name of freedom” were damaging the rule of law, and that the Asian financial hub’s recovery from anti-government protests could take a long time.

On Tuesday morning, stranded passengers were seen lining up to catch their delayed flights, as airport authorities announced that it will implement rescheduling while blaming demonstrators for the disruption at one of the world’s busiest airports.
