Measles Outbreak Feared In New Jersey After Passenger Arrives At Newark Airport With Disease

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – New Jersey officials are scrambling to contain another possible outbreak of the measles after an airline passenger with the illness traveled through a local airport on Christmas Eve. According to the state’s Department of Health, the passenger arrived in Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport on a flight from Brussels on Monday. Officials believe the flyer may have also visited other areas of the airport and anyone who was at Newark Liberty from noon to 4 p.m. may have been exposed to the contagious disease. It could take until Jan. 14 for someone who was infected by the passenger to develop symptoms of the measles. “Measles symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. It can cause serious complications such as pneumonia and encephalitis (swelling of the brain),” a statement from New Jersey’s Department of Health explained. This is the second incident involving the measles in the state this year. An ongoing outbreak in Ocean County has reportedly infected 33 people, according New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal. Source

Busiest Day In Aviation History

Was this the busiest day in aviation history? Flight tracking app registers over 225,000 aircraft in the skies on Wednesday  Wednesday may have been one of the busiest days in aviation history. Flight tracking app Flightradar24 said it registered over 225,000 aircraft in the skies on that day - the most it had ever recorded in a single day. The figure is made up of every flight the app managed to trace and includes commercial flights, cargo planes, helicopters, gliders and private jets. However, Flightradar24 has only been tracking flights since 2006 and isn't the official supplier of air traffic data, so whether Wednesday was a record-breaker is open to debate. To illustrate just how busy the skies were on Wednesday, Flightradar24 released a snapshot of its world map graphic from that day, which was swarming with plane icons. The majority of the flights were clustered over the United States, Europe and South East Asia. Source
