Measles, Rubeola, or Morbilli Cause of Sad Story
Measles, Rubeola, or Morbilli can be a deadly disease and can be prevented. After reading this article I realized just how serious Measles can affect the lives of innocent children. In the United States outbreaks of Measles have become more common recently. Why, many may ask? In the United States children must be vaccinated before attending school whether public or private. Each State varies with respect to types of vaccines required. There are ways for your child to “opt out” such as for religious reasons or fear of autism. Dr. Joseph Rahimian an infectious disease specialist from St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan recently stated, "What concerns me is the trend of more and more people not vaccinating their children because of fears that vaccines cause autism — although no studies have proven this to be true," 1 Could this be one of the reasons, too many are opting out of the vaccine?
Measles, Rubeola, or Morbilli can be as deadly as the justthevax blog above indicates. Experts believe people who travel overseas and become ill return to the states and infect others who have neglected to be vaccinated. Measles, Rubeola, or Morbilli are airborne and highly contagious. When an infected individual coughs or sneezes infected cells containing the virus spew out of the infected persons mouth and nose and can be easily inhaled by unsuspecting victims. This virus can live in the air two hours after an infected person leaves a room and to make matters worse a person can be infected and contagious 1 or 2 days before they show any symptoms.
Generally symptoms of measles, Rubeola, or Morbilli are runny nose, high fever, rash ( usually beginning with the face and then spreading to the rest of the body), and coughing.
Air purification and filtration can significantly reduce the spread of infectious diseases and germs. Photocatalytic oxidation is the recognized technology that does destroy malignant microbes. It is essential that indoor clinics, hospitals, and doctor offices utilize the most up to date technologies to reduce the spread of diseases such as Measles, Rubeola, or Morbilli. A big portion of the responsibility of preventing the spread of measles still falls on the individual. Vaccines are available in the United States and have proven to be very effective with little to no risk.
