COLUMBIA — An outbreak of mumps at the University of Missouri has expanded to 128 confirmed and probable cases, according to the MU Student Health Center and local health departments.
In the beginning of November, the Health Center reported that a
handful of students had been diagnosed with mumps. This number has been
expanding quickly ever since.
Susan Even, executive director of the Health Center, explained that
because the virus is transmitted through saliva, students spread the
mumps by sharing drinking cups or eating from the same plate.
"We've never had an outbreak like this," Even said. "There has been
sporadic isolated cases of mumps over the years, but nothing like this."
All infected students met the immunization policy requirement of two
Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR) vaccines. A majority of cases have occurred
in students with links to Greek organizations on campus, according to
the Health Center. READ MORE
