Another measles case in Auckland

14 Mar, 2018

The Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) has confirmed a second case of measles. It is likely this person has caught the disease on flight SQ285 which landed in Auckland on 22 February 2018.

The latest case is an AUT student and ARPHS is working closely with AUT to determine the immunity of those people who have been in classes with the individual while infectious. Anyone who has been in contact with the student and is not immune is required to stay at home in quarantine to prevent the disease spreading.
