Perth Measles Warning After 6 Infections

Health authorities have warned of an increased risk of measles in Perth after six people reported being infected in the past week.

They had contact with two people who recently brought their infections in from overseas, at a workplace and in a hospital Emergency Department.

The Department of Health said the latest cases visited various public places while they were infectious, so other people may have been exposed to measles, which is highly contagious.
