A 16-month-old Chinese boy traveling with his family in Taiwan has been confirmed as an imported case of measles, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said Monday.
Chou Jih-haw, deputy CDC director general, said the boy, his older brother and his parents were part of a tour group that arrived in Taiwan June 2.
The boy developed a fever June 1 and three days later developed rashes behind his ears. The boy’s father, a pediatrician, suspected his son to be suffering from measles.
The leader of the group helped to get the boy taken in a special vehicle to a hospital negative pressure ward, where the diagnosis was confirmed. [FULL STORY]
