There were a total of 2,126 USA cases of measles in 1992, the CDC said in a statement.
Federal health officials attribute this year's outbreak to USA parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. "CDC will continue working with public health responders across our nation to bring this outbreak to an end". These parents believe, contrary to scientific evidence, that ingredients in the vaccine can cause autism.
"Measles is preventable and the way to end this outbreak is to ensure that all children and adults who can get vaccinated, do get vaccinated", CDC Director Robert Redfield said in a statement on Thursday.
The CDC stated that outbreaks in New York City and Rockland County, New York, have continued for almost eight months.
As the count approaches 1,000, the U.S. is on track to lose its "elimination status", held by most developed nations in the world, to become a country where measles is active.

The high case count in 2019 has been driven by a few large outbreaks, including in New York City and New York's Rockland County, where the virus has been spreading for almost eight months.
After confirming the hypothesis on the ease with which measles spreads through travel as it is highly contagious and transmitted through airborne respiratory droplets, researchers determined it is possible to perform a predictive risk analysis identifying which counties in the United States are most at risk for outbreaks. "Your decision to vaccinate will protect your family's health and your community's well-being". But now, the disease has returned.
Other measles cases have occurred in Oklahoma and Washington state. During this period around 4 million people used to be infected each year but several cases went unreported and of these around 400-500 died every year while 48,000 received treatment and around a thousand people contracted encephalitis.
Asking patients about their vaccination status or any global travel completed recently is a reasonable measles screening procedure for dentists to follow. Babies between six months and 11 months old need one dose of measles vaccine, while everyone 12 months and older need two doses.
