I’m Carl Azuz for CNN 10. We’re grateful to have you wrapping up the week with us. We start with a milestone for the measles. This year there’ve been at least 681 cases of the disease stretched across 22 U.S. states. That’s the highest number on record since the measles was declared eliminated from the U.S. in the year 2000. Being eliminated doesn’t mean its completely gone, it means the country went more than 12 months without people continuously catching the disease.

我是卡尔·阿祖兹,这里是CNN 10分钟新闻。我们很感激你能和我们一起结束这一周。我们从麻疹的一个里程碑开始。今年,美国22个州至少有681例猪流感病例。这是自2000年美国宣布消灭麻疹以来的最高记录。被消灭并不意味着它完全消失了,只是意味着这个国家在过去的12个多月里没有人持续感染这种疾病。

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says the current outbreaks are linked to people who traveled to other countries and brought the measles back with them. No one has died in the outbreaks. Most of children who’ve been infected were not fully vaccinated against the measles though some were and caught it anyway. The vaccine offered in America isn’t just for the measles. It’s called MMR, standing for measles, mumps, and rubella. The three diseases it aims to prevent. Doctors recommend two doses of this vaccine in early childhood.

美国疾病控制中心表示,目前的疫情与到其他国家旅行并带回麻疹的人有关。没有人在疫情中死亡。大多数被感染的儿童并没有完全接种麻疹疫苗,尽管有些儿童接种了麻疹疫苗,但还是感染了。美国提供的疫苗不仅仅针对麻疹。它被称为MMR,代表麻疹、腮腺炎和风疹。它的目标是预防三种疾病。医生建议儿童早期接种两剂这种疫苗。

The CDC says there’s a remote chance that the MMR vaccine can cause side effects and even serious injuries which is why some parents are holding off on getting it for their children. But experts say the benefits of the vaccine outweigh its risks. Measles is highly contagious. Symptoms include high fevers, coughing, and a skin rash.

美国疾病控制与预防中心表示,MMR疫苗极有可能产生副作用,甚至造成严重伤害,这就是为什么一些家长推迟给孩子接种疫苗的原因。但专家表示,疫苗的好处大于风险。麻疹传染性很强。症状包括高烧、咳嗽和皮疹。
