Dr Alex Mani JCDR. 2020: 371-375
Measles is a highly contagious viral disease that is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality among children worldwide. The disease is transmitted through respiratory droplets and can cause severe respiratory and systemic symptoms, such as fever, cough, rash, and pneumonia. Although the measles vaccine has been available for several decades, outbreaks still occur in many countries, particularly in areas with low vaccination coverage. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were an estimated 207,500 measles deaths worldwide in 2019, most of which occurred in children under the age of five years.
