Measles: From New Zealand to Perth and W Perth
Spreading at a rapid rate, 13 people, including three babies, are suspected to be struck down with measles, a highly contagious disease.
The root cause for the sudden outbreak of the disease is yet to be confirmed. But a kiwi tourist who visited the Rockingham area last month is a prime suspect for the spreading of this disease.
Measles being a highly contagious disease, is travelling from person to person by mere air contact. The latest condition diagnosed woman was found travelling from Auckland to Perth.
The New Zealand Government is continuously under heavy criticism for not being able to take necessary actions to safeguard their people from the widely spreading disease.
Necessary precautions and safety measures now taken by the govt include measles vaccination check and provision of additional dose if it is required by the individuals travelling overseas.
