Mumps Epidemic Spreads Easily From Infected Air Travelers

Six other Midwestern states, including Illinois seem to be in the grips of a mumps epidemic which initially sparked off in Iowa, and health officials suspect that it spread easily to the other states, when potentially infected passengers, traveling by air, might have helped spread the infection to the other states.

This only goes to show how certain air-borne diseases can spread easily through air travel. According to health officials, 515 suspected cases have been reported in Iowa, and the disease has been seen in six neighboring states.
