Toddler gets measles on Oahu; 2nd case in 2 weeks

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii health authorities have confirmed a second case of the measles on Oahu in less than two weeks.

State epidemiologist Dr. Sarah Park said Tuesday a 2-year-old was exposed during a visit to a pediatrician's office on Feb. 7.

The child developed a cough and fever 10 days later followed by a rash Friday.

The first case involved an infant who returned from the Philippines with the disease.

KHON reports the state isn't naming the doctor's office or location. But it isn't at Wahiawa General Hospital where both children were taken during their illness.

Those exposed to the second case would likely show symptoms by mid-March if they contracted the disease.

People who believe they may have measles should call their doctor instead of going to the doctor's office.
