The Centers for Disease Control yesterday confirmed three new measles cases associated with a cluster at a hospital in central Taiwan, bringing the total to eight.
The three new cases were all female nurses in their 20s who worked at the hospital and had direct contact with another nurse in her 40s who worked at the hospital, the centers said.
The nurse in her 40s was diagnosed with measles on March 28, it said.
Although the three nurses had received measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccinations on March 30 or Monday last week, they began showing symptoms on Friday and Saturday last week, and developed rashes from Saturday to Monday, the centers said.
