Measles Makes Comeback, As Outbreak Happens In 22 States

New developments about the measles in Alabama. Final testing on a baby -- done by the CDC-- came back negative, the Alabama Department of Public Health announced Friday. The St. Clair County infant, a 5-month old girl, was thought to be Alabama's first confirmed case because of a positive result from initial testing done by a commercial lab. The department says it issued an alert out of an abundance of caution. The negative test result means Alabama has no confirmed measles cases.
