The 27-year-old first traveled from Britain to Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia, just outside the US capital, visiting Washington and the neighboring state of Maryland before flying to Albuquerque, New Mexico after a transfer in Denver, Colorado.

Local and state health officials are now searching for people who may have been exposed to measles during the unidentified woman's extensive travels.

"We have not heard up to now from anyone infected," said Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman Jeff Dimond on Tuesday.

The woman experienced measles symptoms after arriving at her final destination, according to the CDC, which noted she had not been vaccinated.

"For measles, we typically contact people who are the row in front, the row behind (three rows total) and also any children... because they may not have been vaccinated yet," CDC spokeswoman Christine Pearson told AFP.
