Potential Measles outbreak in Australia

New measles outbreak in Australia! Hundreds in western Australia could have been exposed to a measles infected man who contracted it while on vacation. Measles, an extremely contagious disease, presents a serious risk for young children and the elderly. The Australian government has since quarantined the patient and has backtracked the entirety of his route before going to the hospital. People exposed should show symptoms in the next 10 days.
