TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault told police she was raped at an apartment after a night of drinking at a bar, according to a search warrant released hours before a prosecutor was to announce whether the Heisman Trophy contender should face charges.
Washington (United States) (AFP) - Measles has all but disappeared from the United States for the past decade but risks a comeback due to a growing number of parents who refuse to vaccinate children, experts said Thursday. Fifty years after a vaccine against the highly contagious viral infection was approved, the US strategy of blanket immunization has proven a victory for public health, said the findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Two related viruses are also way down in the United States: rubella, which has been below one case per 10 million births since 2004 and congenital rubella syndrome (CRS), which is down to one case per five million births, it added. But while measles has vanished from the Western hemisphere, it remains common elsewhere, including in parts of Africa and Asia, and kills as many as 18 children per hour around the globe.
