OUTBREAK: Measles coming to get you
It might not be Anthrax, Rabies, Foot and Mouth, polio or Ebola, but it sure isn’t fun if you get it. Measles are taking hold on Auckland. From West Auckland to the North Shore and Manukau and Waikato. There are now 94 confirmed cases of measles in Auckland and 10 in Waikato. There is an easy solution: get immunised. Oh but several cases are from people associated with the Ranui Baptist Church. God doesn’t approve of immunisation? Fuck other people. I get sick, you get sick. Thank you. There are also innocent victims of this very contagious (easily spread) illness caused by a virus. Children too young to be immunised.
Update: Also measles threat in Nelson Marlborough region.
