State fears measles outbreak

By 67AM KPUA News

The State Health Department is concerned about a potential outbreak of measles, after an O`ahu infant contracted the disease in the Philippines and was found to be infectious while traveling back to Honolulu and during visits to receive medical treatment. State Epidemiologist Dr. Sarah Park said the disease is so contagious it will infect 90 percent of the contacts who are not immune.

Park urged people who experience measles symptoms, which include fever and widespread rash, to call their doctor right away and isolate themselves from others to help contain the spread of the illness.
