New Zealand : Measles spreading

Via Stuff :

" The outbreak of measles is continuing to spread across Auckland with students at a central city school contracting the disease and a three-year-old boy from Whangarei suspected as having picked it up while he was in the city.

Three students from Auckland Girls Grammar School have been confirmed as having measles and students who are not immunised are being told to stay home, the Auckland Regional Public Health Service says.

On Wednesday the public health service confirmed 106 people have contracted the disease, five people have been quarantined and seven cases required hospitalisation."
