How does such a large city have reports of one (1) case of such a deadly and highly contagious disease (insert eyeroll)? They had one case in April of this year, one case in 2000 and 5 cases in 1999. Wow, I wonder how many cases the other 50 states had.

And can someone explain to me where Congenital Rubella Syndrome came from, in years where there were no cases of Rubella? (I'm just full of dumb questions today.) What causes CRS anyway?
