About 120 people in Orange County have contracted red measles in the first 4 months of 1989--more than in all of last year, according to county epidemiologist Thomas Prendergast. And in some of this year's cases, the disease has spread from patients to the hospital staff and their children, Prendergast said. "We have evidence it spread to staff and/or patients in nine hospitals and in doctors' offices as well," he said. In some cases patients who visit a hospital daily for radiation treatment were exposed and then exposed other patients, he said.
