NO SPOTS ON BONDI BOYS

Doctors in Bondi say there is no danger to schoolchildren in the Waverley area from a reported outbreak of measles in western Sydney.

“We have seen no sign of this contagious affliction in our area,” a Bondi GP told The Bondi Daily. “In fact, we haven’t seen a case in years.”

Parental concern was raised after a local Hills District resident, who recently returned from Singapore, presented with measles symptoms (an outbreak of red spots on his face).

“Measles is a mild childhood complaint – but some types of measles can be very dangerous for pregnant women,” the GP said. “Children at school are particularly vulnerable, and should be vaccinated against it.”
