A man dubbed "Patient Zero," who spread measles to Oakland County, Michigan, was a traveler from Israel who came via New York, according to state health officials.

There have reported 39 measles cases in Michigan this year, according to officials.

This is the largest measles outbreak to hit the state in more than two decades.

Patient Zero was originally in New York, where he spent time in Brooklyn's ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, the epicenter of a crisis.
