NBC New York reports that the number of people affected by the city’s recent measles outbreak is now 26. The news comes two weeks after the last new cases were confirmed, and the Health Department is “urging continued vigilance.” That means that people with children should vaccinate them. The rest of us just have to wash our hands and hope for the best.
