 According to the National Hygiene authority in the same period of the previous year there were only 187 cases registered, according to the Institute, with a total of 339 cases for the entire year.

 Measles is a highly contagious airborne disease. It is caused by the measles virus which can spread through the coughing or sneezing of infected persons. Its symptoms include a high fever, cough, runny nose and inflamed eyes, and a rash which appears four to five days later.

  Measles often has complications which can range from diarrhea to meningitis.

  One of the most effective ways of preventing the disease is the measles vaccine. The World Health Organisation believes that the resurgence of measles worldwide is caused by the growth of the anti-vaxxing movement and spreading of false information about the needlessness and dangers of vaccinations.
