With eight cases of the measles confirmed to date, officials from the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services announced they are working with local health departments to investigate and control an outbreak. Though nothing can get rid of a measles infection, health officials say it can be prevented by the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine.
The Buncombe County Department of Health is currently investigating an outbreak of Salmonella Paratyphi B infection. The county department of health reports, as of this morning 27 possible cases have been identified and the source of contamination remains unknown. All cases appear to have been associated with residence or travel to Buncombe County since February 28, 2012. A hotline will be available after 1 p.m. today to offer people a way to call for accurate information about this outbreak.
