            The University of Kansas Hospital said Thursday that a person who was treated at the hospital from Friday, March 23, to Monday, March 26, has tested positive for the highly contagious viral illness.

                          Measles outbreak in Kansas is over. But how much did it cost taxpayers?
                          By The Associated Press

                          KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Two measles outbreaks in Kansas City have ended, but officials have just started to calculate the costs of containing them.

                          The city deemed the outbreaks officially over as of Monday, when there had been no new cases in 42 days, or two full incubation periods, the Kansas City Star reported. The city had been combating the highly contagious virus since March.

                          “Part of our challenge was many, many exposure sites,” said Mary Anne Jackson of Children’s Mercy Hospital. “This included our day care center, this included a megachurch ... this included multiple health care settings including Children’s Mercy and pediatricians’ offices in multiple different counties. So you can see how difficult it is to halt the spread of measles once it gets within your community.”

                          More than $170,000 in taxpayer resources went to holding the outbreaks to 35 total cases, 22 of which were in Kansas and the rest in Missouri...
