 Smiling Germar with fading measles rash
 I had reported a couple of weeks ago that we had a family in the hospital that had the measles.  We put then in a ward by themselves because measles is highly contagious.  

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.
