Ten people from the same family, who were suspected of having measles, were transported to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Mafraq Governorate on Thursday [15 Jun 2023], according to Roya’s reporter. A healthcare professional said that 2 children were admitted to the pediatric ward, while the others were placed in separate rooms within the hospital for isolation purposes.
The source also mentioned that samples were collected to confirm the diagnosis, as it was discovered that none of the individuals had been vaccinated against measles in the past.
