Child in New Hampshire diagnosed with measles



Public health officials say that one child in New Hampshire has been diagnosed with measles and others may have been exposed to infection at three locations in Keene last week. The Ministry of Health and Human Services said the child is in the United Church Christi kindergarten on Sunday, May 12, and is having a coffee hour in the church. The child was also on Thursday in the nursery and nursery rooms of the Keene Montessori School and in the walk-in clinic of the Cheshire Medical Center. Anyone living in these locations should check their vaccination or immunity status and those who are not immune. May need to be vaccinated immediately. Health officials said last week that the number of measles cases has exceeded 800 this year, the highest number in 25 years. Measles are caused by a virus that is transmitted from person to person through the air when someone sneezes, coughs or talks with the disease. The virus can remain contagious in the air for up to two hours after an infected person leaves the area. It is very easy for people who have not received the measles vaccine to get it from someone else. The incubation period for measles from the time of exposure is seven to 21

days, typically two weeks. The symptoms of measles infection usually start with a high fever, cough, runny nose and conjunctivitis a few days before a rash occurs.
