(REUTERS) The Georgia case is unrelated to a California outbreak that originated with a person from outside the United States who visited the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim in late December, Georgia health officials said on Monday.

Some 121 people in California and 16 other states have been diagnosed with measles this year as of Friday, with 85 percent of the cases linked to the Disneyland outbreak, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In the Georgia case, the patient arrived in Atlanta from outside the United States and is being treated at a local hospital, health officials said.
