    Measles Outbreak

    Post by Admin on Wed May 02, 2012 9:12 pm

    Just read this in the news this morning.


    More than 200 cases of measles have been confirmed on Merseyside in the largest outbreak since 1988, the Health Protection Agency has said.

    There are 210 confirmed cases, 39 of which needed hospital treatment. Ninety two cases are under investigation.

    About 50% of the cases are in children under five years old.

    The outbreak, which is concentrated on Liverpool where there are 125 confirmed cases, is the largest since the MMR vaccine was introduced.

    There are 29 confirmed cases in Knowsley, 22 in Sefton and seven in Wirral. Further cases have been confirmed in Cheshire, Halton and St Helens.

    More than 30% of cases have been in people aged 15 years or over.
