The National Institute for Communicable Diseases on Tuesday said that it was working with the World Health Organization and Unicef to investigate and respond to the measles outbreak in Gauteng. The country’s Health Department on Monday reported three cases in Tshwane and one on the West Rand. Eyewitness news quotes SA’s Public health surveillance and response head, Michelle Groome as saying, “Non-pharmaceutical measures such as social distancing and hand washing might not be sufficient to prevent transmission of measles virus. However, measles is preventable through a safe and preventable vaccine.”
