This map tracks measles cases in the United States reported by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other sources. One of the surprising aspects of this outbreak is that the bulk of this outbreak is in the NY tri-state metro area, an area with the one of the best healthcare systems in the country, that the Anti-Vax movement created havoc with a disease that was under control until 2019.
On the worldwide scale countries are experiencing far greater volume of cases in the tens of thousands or more. See:
