First Measles Case Reported In Aotearoa Since 2019

Feb. 14, 2023, 2:08 p.m.

There haven't been any known reports of measles in New Zealand since the first outbreak in 2019. The Ministry of Health has reported its first case for this year, says Dame Naida Glavish, and is urging everybody to keep safe from this virus as it could result in death.

The first sign of measles is usually a high fever, a runny nose, a cough, red and watery eyes, and small white spots inside the cheeks that can develop in the initial stage. Other symptoms could include a rash that erupts, usually on the face and upper neck, and could spread to the hands and feet of the person infected.
