WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

  • Around 20,000 people were exposed to measles during a spiritual revival at Asbury University in Kentucky.
  • The outbreak was caused by an unvaccinated worshiper who attended the event and was infected with the virus.
  • The state public health agency is working with the university and the CDC to limit the spread of the disease and identify additional cases.

Around 20,000 people who attended a spiritual revival at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky, may have been exposed to measles. The outbreak was caused by an unvaccinated worshiper who attended the event and was later found to be infected with the virus. Measles is a highly contagious respiratory virus that is spread through the air.

Symptoms include fever, cough, and runny nose, followed by a rash three to five days after symptoms begin.

The Asbury Revival, which took place from February 8 to February 19 at the university’s chapel, drew thousands of people from across city, county, and state lines. Videos shared on social media platforms showed people praying, holding hands, and crying to worship music.



The gathering attracted national attention to the small Christian school, located approximately 30 minutes from Lexington. In response to the outbreak, state public health commissioner Steven Stack has urged anyone who attended the revival on February 18 to quarantine for 21 days and to seek immunization with the measles vaccine.

The vaccine has long been available and required for children attending public schools across the country. The state public health agency is working with Asbury University, the Jessamine County Health Department, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to limit the spread of the disease and identify any additional cases.

As of Thursday, it’s unclear if there are more cases on the campus or in the region.

The university is collaborating with health officials “to ensure all precautions are taken to mitigate any further spread.”

Measles, in addition to being potentially lethal, can weaken the immune system for months, making an individual vulnerable to other diseases. The two-dose vaccination has been around for decades and is credited with drastically reducing the virus’s prevalence in the United States.

    Might is a very large word. I was wondering what the government would come up with to stop the meeting.

      Or even more so, to prevent any others! There have been occasional cases forever. but school age children have been required to have vaccinations, since I was in 1st grade in 1946!! I had them, before that, and had chicken-pox at the same time! I suspect they PLANTED that one person in the group! Now, we’ll probably have an “outbreak” all over the country, of vacinnated people w/measles! It will be a “new variation”!!! Their goal finally popped out. Reduce the population by 90%, not 50! There is SOOoo much we do NOT know! Satan has BEEN LOOSED!!And God has said he will let him do ANYTHING he wants, for a SHORT TIME! I saw a recent article that said that America IS the “Mystery Babylon”! I first thought “NO!” THEN, I realized that America WAS a “MYSTERY”! NO ONE in Bible times, knew it existed!! And it is definitely, at the present, as evil as Babylon! He said America will be the first destroyed, and it will be by fire! Scientists have SAID, that it will be destroyed by the volcanos in the fault line.They said ONE missle in the right plce (purpose of the “balloon???) would split it 1/2 into. I think, when it hits the Mississippi, it will split into FOUR burning islands! We have added -4 (?) new volcanoes since then! Each of them larger than any before!!People, had better be getting right with GOD!

    Isn’t it strange how they always find something to scare people, very suspicious. At any t all those people did no attend at the same time. So this “news” is hyper B/S.

      Hyper-BS, indeed ! Does the mainstream media think we will easily believe what they report now?
      After all the hyped up lies, and gaslighting done to misinform the public, do they think we are still that stupid?
      Good luck…. misguided reporters! You can’t destroy our faith in God, nor can we allow you to take away our
      FREEDOM to worship our God, and enjoy the brotherhood we have in Jesus Christ !!!!!!

      It will be bird flu or whatever China and The Who can put together to control the world and destroy the US. What is really sad, is that our politicians, the establishment and the radical Democrats are enabling this destsructionof human lives and America.

        Our politicians have all been paid off to look the other way. Our government has become a globalist government………just ask Xiden and his globalist BUILD BACK BETTER BULLSHITE. THIS SLOGAN IS USED ACROSS EUROPE AS WELL. ASK BORIS JOHNSON AND THE LEADER OF THE NETHERLANDS.

      He had the corona in the Chinese lab, paid for by American taxpayers dollars and released by the CCP/ Democrat parties to control the world.

    “Kentucky Officials” huh. At who’s bidding. How were the so called officials able to infect the people at the meeting? Was it a person planted or something worse? This is just too well timed.

      They planted an illegal with measles at the event.

    Just another week of fear mongering. Don’t forget, the illegals were coming in with measles and this lousy administration did nothing. No red flags, no warnings. Another crock of BS to keep people in line.

    Well lets all just rush out and get vaccinated so the pharmaceutical companies can make another trillion off the taxpayers hard earned money.
    I had measles when I was a kid. Lots of kids got the measles 60 to 70 years ago. It was no big deal! Not in the least bit! So don’t let these conniving crooks get anybody in another stupid panic.

    The biggest and most destructive outbreak that AMERICANS need to be concerned about is the mentally unfit robot that is destroying AMERICA and a lot of the free world and the loonies that are in charge of programming this out of control entity.I am eighty four years old and never in my lifetime have I seen such a blatant and intentional destruction of AMERICA.

    First off, there are waivers for school so no, students are NOT required to have the measles vaccine in most states. Second, most people that are hospitalized, are hospitalized due to dehydration. Third, people with measles can be treated with high doses of Vitamin A. Fourth, the instance of measles has not changed since the vaccine has been introduced. Fifth, more people die ever year from the measles vaccine than people have of measles. In fact, I urge you to go check the data of how many people have actually died from measles in the past decade.

    Also a lot of suspicion that the vaccine might be the cause of autism! People have probably stopped getting the vaccine for this reason, so they gotta do something to get people to waste their money, and ruin their kids lives!

    So they know who the person was with the measles…….and yet, no name was released. This is another attempt for the government to suppress free speech and free worship by scaring everyone with a virus. DEPLORABLE, EVIL PEOPLE WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO RUIN CIVILIZATION. Sounds like an ILLEGAL attended……..because they’re the only ones unvaccinated for measles……….WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!

    Here we go again with another scare tactic. Measles are nothing to be afraid of, we had measles when we were children and are very healthy. Don’t let them start with this – well you need to get vaccinated against measles. All vaccinations do it lower your own bodies immune system. Remember, God created each one of us and gave us the best immune system ever, and man cannot over do what God has done.
