Kufstein, Swazil – six children from lowland are tied to the Innsbruck Children's Hospital as a precautionary measure. You may have been in contact with a measles child in a pediatric surgery in the Schwaz district. As children are under six months old, they cannot be vaccinated against measles, the state said on Thursday.
Clinical therapy is based on the protection of the infection with immunoglobulins. This activates large parts of the immune system to prevent possible measles virus as soon as possible. More than half a year of contact with the vaccine is protected against measles infection by administering two measles and mumps vaccine vaccines.
Already on Tuesday it was known that a woman in the lowlands was suffering from measles. Another case on Wednesday became known, and the child from Alpbachtal had to be treated as well. Another possible illness with possibly sick people has not been confirmed. All three cases were independent.
All contacts are informed
In close cooperation with the district authorities, all necessary measures are taken to prevent the spread of measles. "All potential contacts are informed and informed and all necessary measures are taken from a medical point of view," explains Franz Katzgraber, Landessanitätsdirektor. (TT.com)
