You can identify Measles by fever and reddish rash all over the body. There are also some first signs of Measles to look for such as: a fever, coughing, runny nose, and red eyes. Measles usually lasts nine excruciatingly painful days.
In 1864, doctor Peter Ludwig Panum was sent to the Faeroe Islands to study a measles epidemic. There, he found out that once you got Measles you couldn't get it again -if you lived through it. In 1961, United States scientists created the first ever effective vaccine for measles.
Anyone who lived in an area that had no measles, was more vulnerable to measles because they had never seen or had it before.
