Eighth case of measles reported in Ipswich

HEALTH officials have confirmed an eighth case of measles in Ipswich.

A person, who was unknowingly infectious with the disease, visited Ipswich police station and Ipswich court house on several occasions between September 23 and 27.

The person also visited the UFS pharmacy at Booval last Thursday afternoon.

West Moreton Hospital and Health Service's Dr Heidi Carroll said people who visited these areas, especially those who had not been vaccinated for measles or have no evidence of immunity to measles, should be alert for symptoms.

"Measles is one of the most infectious of all communicable diseases and is spread by tiny droplets through coughing and sneezing," she said.
