•More than 140 000 people died from measles in 2018 – mostly children under the age of 5 years, despite the availability of a safe and effective vaccine.

•Measles is caused by a virus in the paramyxovirus family and

•it is normally passed through direct contact and through the air.

•The virus infects the respiratory tract,

•then spreads throughout the body.

•Measles is a human disease and is not known to occur in animals.

•high fever, which begins about 10 to 12 days after exposure to the virus, and lasts 4 to 7 days.

•arunny nose,

•a cough,

•red and watery eyes,

•and small white spots inside the cheeks can develop in the initial stage.

•After several days, a rash erupts, usually on the face and upper neck.

•Over about 3 days, the rash spreads, eventually reaching the hands and feet. The rash lasts for 5 to 6 days, and then fades.

•On average, the rash occurs 14 days after exposure to the virus (within a range of 7 to 18 days).


Measle related deaths – due to complications


•Serious complications are more common in children under the age of 5, or adults over the age of 30. The most serious complications include
