Ministry advises measles transmission prevention during coming holidays

The Ministry of Health has warned of the risk of measles spread in the country in the upcoming holidays.

As per the Ministry’s guideline, people with breathing diseases, coughing or fever should restrict their travel to crowded areas during the coming holidays. Children without proper vaccinations should not be taken to the crowd to avoid risks of contracting measles.

Parents should keep an eye on their children and it is also important to pay attention to children’s dental and personal hygiene and keep accommodation clean.

The ministry asked parents to take their kids without proper immunization to local health facilities for vaccination against the disease.

During the trip, if holidaymakers have fever, cough or rashes, they should go to nearby local clinics for timely treatment to curb transmission.

Local health authority should organize mobile vaccination sites to finish immunization rate in July.
