More measles confirmed in south-west Michigan


Michigan's Department of Health and Human Services confirmed there were four other cases of measles in Oakland County.

A further three cases are also being examined.

There is a list of places where people could now be opened here.

The recent event follows on the issue of travel peerage reported last week.

“There is an outbreak of measles in the community and incredibly dangerous,” said Leigh-Anne Stafford, Oakland County Health Officer.

There is an appetite for serious illness to spread by direct contact and air.

“If symptoms change, do not visit your doctor or an emergency room if you don't call forward so that they can take action so that others don't come,” Stafford said.

Stafford said a man was thought to be found to find out that they got vaccination because it was effective within 72 hours of attending.

A virus can cause up to two hours' stay in places where the infected person visits. Sugar marks can appear in any place from 7 to 14 days after exposure but it can take up to 21 days.

Signs of the disease include high fever, cough, runny nose and a red rash.

The health department says that anyone who is at risk of, or who is not aware of, their vaccine status should be immunized.

People at high risk include pregnant women and those weakened with their immune systems.

The virus can stop the vaccine and the vaccine is available through most health providers.
