Measles virus on San Diego – Honolulu flight


250 passengers of a San Diego – Honolulu flight are searched by Hawaiian health officials on suspicion of measles infection. The pesthole of the disease was named an infected baby, later isolated at a military hospital in Hawaii.

The health officials are also concerned about those people who were at Lindbergh Field's Terminal 2, Gate 41, last Saturday morning before departure of Hawaiian Airlines Flight 15.

The actual outbreak began in San Diego last month when a child contracted the virus during a family trip to Switzerland. After that another five cases were confirmed and at least five others were suspected.
