Measles - sharing the love east coast

A measles alert has been issued for the greater Brisbane region, as well as Melbourne and Shepparton in Victoria after an infected woman visited those cities and stayed in the area for several days.
This follows four measles cases that were diagnosed in Sydney in April. The director of communicable diseases for the NSW Health, Vicky Sheppeard, said measles was the most infectious disease known to man. "In 2012, we had one case of measles that resulted a further 169 cases over the period of a few months," she said. "Just one case can cause an outbreak and so by informing people about measles, about the symptoms, and about how it can be prevent it, we hope to contain this and have as few further cases as possible." "It's transmitted through the air, so you can have a person with measles in a room, they can leave it and you can walk in there 15 minutes later and still catch the infection," she said. Queensland Health said of the recent case, after the woman visited Melbourne and Shepparton, she then caught a train to Beenleigh, south of Brisbane, and later visited the Beaudesert Fair Shopping Centre. Metro South Health (MSH) physician Dr Bhakti Vasant said the woman, who was visiting from Victoria, was infectious while in Brisbane from Saturday to Tuesday.

Dr Vicky Sheppeard, Director of Communicable Diseases at NSW Health said that measles is highly contagious among people who are not fully immunised.
"Measles is highly infectious and is spread through coughing and sneezing. Symptoms can include fever, tiredness, runny nose, cough and sore red eyes which usually last for several days before a red, blotchy rash appears. Complications can range from an ear infection and diarrhoea to pneumonia or swelling of the brain," Dr Sheppeard said. She advised that the three young men (aged 25 - 35 years) have recently spent time in Earlwood, Hurlstone Park, Alexandria and Waterloo, while potentially infectious with measles. The men also visited local medical centres in Rozelle, Croydon, Rockdale as well as the Royal Prince Alfred Emergency Department while infectious during the past week. The time from exposure to the onset of symptoms is typically around 10 days but can be as long as 21 days, so there may be other cases in the community now or people who will be developing symptoms over the next few weeks. Dr Sheppeard advised parents of infants or other people who aren't fully vaccinated against measles to be on the lookout for symptoms of measles. "If symptoms develop please phone ahead when seeking medical attention to ensure you don't share the waiting area with other patients," Dr Sheppeard said.
