Member of China Airlines Ground Staff Has Measles|華航1地勤染麻疹 可傳染期間仍在執勤
China Airlines has a lot on its plate right now. A member of its ground staff in Taoyuan International Airport developed a fever and a rash last week and was diagnosed with a measles infection on July 28. As he was contagious four days before his rash appeared and worked at both Terminals 1 and 2 at Taoyuan International Airport during this period, not to mention this person also ate at the food court and took the Taoyuan MRT, the Centers for Disease Control is reminding people with relevant activity histories to be on high alert.
A 20-something member of China Airlines' ground staff at Taoyuan International Airport has come down with the measles. He developed a fever on the 21st and a rash on his face and upper body on the 24th. Tests on the 28th confirmed a measles infection. The man is currently in quarantine.
They need to figure out which flights he came into contact with and at what time. It's better to be safe than sorry. Otherwise, the outbreak might get out of hand.
The Centers for Disease Control says the worker got the MMR vaccine last year and has no recent history of traveling abroad. Therefore, it is unclear how he caught the measles.
In general, (the MMR vaccine) is around 93 percent effective with around 7 percent of people not being able to get protection.
Although the worker has not been to work since developing a rash, he was contagious in the four days prior. On the 20th, 22nd and 23rd, he worked at both Taoyuan terminals and ate at the B2 food court. He also took the Taoyuan MRT on these days. The CDC believes he came into contact with 73 people, most of whom were colleagues. These 73 people will be monitored until Aug. 11.
Because (measles) molecules are extremely small, they can be transmitted through the air and infect anything they come into contact with.
The CDC says measles is highly infectious and anyone that may have come into contact with the worker should be on high alert and seek medical attention for symptoms including fever, rhinitis, conjunctivitis and rash. This was the 108th measles case of the year. Sixty-seven were domestic cases while 41 originated overseas.
