A total of nine cases of measles cases were discovered in Tel Aviv last month, according to the Health Ministry, whose epidemiologists found a connection among all of them. Although those infected were considered mild cases with a rash and fever, the virus is very contagious and may lead to severe and even life-threatening complications.
The ministry continues to carry out an epidemiological investigation and to look for those who were in contact with the sick patients to check whether they had received the protective vaccine against the disease.
