Measles

Frequency: annual

Definitions:

Morbidity is the frequency of occurrence of new cases of disease in the given population.

Measles is an acute viral infectious disease.
The only source of infection is a sick person. The infection is spread mainly by droplets and by direct contact with the secretion of the nasopharyngeal cavity. Very rarely, the infection occurs indirectly through objects freshly contaminated by nasopharyngeal secretions.
Oder viruses enter the body through the mouth or nose and through the conjunctiva. After multiplication in mucous membranes, they reach various organs, i.e: skin, kidneys, stomach, intestines and liver.
The incubation period is usually from 10 to 12 days.
