The World Health Organization this week reported cases of measles have hit a record high in the European region.

The WHO says more than 41,000 people have been infected in the first half of the year. And, last week, state health officials issued a warning that people in Sedona and Kingman may have been exposed to measles earlier this month.

To talk about the increase in measles cases in some parts of the world, Dr. Bill Moss, a professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, joined The Show.
