|Smiling Germar with fading measles rash|
Last week my nurse Germar became ill. She initially had fever and headache so Dr Eugene treated her for malaria. When she then complained of sore throat and cough I added an antibiotic. She did not improve and her cough worsened so Dr Eugene sent her home for 5 days of rest.
She came back today looking better but she reported that she broke out with measles shortly after going home on Saturday. A good example to us all on the contagious nature of this illness.
