The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) yesterday confirmed the nation’s third case of German measles this year, urging people who went to the same places as the patient during his contagious period to self-monitor their health for three weeks.
The patient is a 50-year-old man from Kaohsiung, who sought medical attention after suffering aches, dizziness, a rash and a fever on March 28, the centers said.
The CDC said the man probably contracted the virus during a trip to China’s Sichuan Province, categorizing him as an imported case. [FULL STORY]
