                            How 2 Michigan kids tested positive for measles, but didn't have disease

                            The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced Friday that it is reducing the state's 2019 tally of measles cases by two, saying further testing has shown children previously thought to have the measles actually do not.

                            The children — one in Oakland County and another in Washtenaw County — had both initially tested positive for the measles. But they also had been recently vaccinated with the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine following possible exposure to the virus.

                            The MMR vaccine contains a weakened live virus that cannot cause measles but can result in positive laboratory tests, according to the MDHHS. The children's symptoms and initial test results classified them as measles cases, but the agency followed the protocol of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and conducted additional genotype testing.

                            That genotype testing showed that the children do not have measles. The remaining 39 cases in Michigan have also been genotyped and are confirmed cases...
