TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Health officials say a northeast Kansas measles outbreak that started in a day care has grown to 16 cases.

Kansas Department of Health and Environment says 13 of the cases are in Johnson County, two in Linn County and one in Miami County.

The Kansas City Star reports that the outbreak started March 8 after a traveler brought the virus back from Asia. It spread mostly through infants too young to be vaccinated at the day care in Johnson County.
