Complicating the matter is the fact that the virus can remain commutable both in the air and on solid surfaces for two hours.

Symptoms of measles include fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis or runny nose.

They usually show up 10-12 days after exposure.

The Department of Health is now asking the people who will see some symptoms, to take immediate treatment.

Although the risk of developing the virus is low for those who have been immunised, the episode is noteworthy given New York City's population density and the Australian's travel route.

The Health Department, she explained, provided affected individuals with relevant information and offered support for individuals who did not know whether or not they had been vaccinated. The Hospital will be taking extraordinary precautions with regard to the prevention of the Measles' spread, specifically through isolating individuals who display symptoms which indicate a possible Measles infection. This will help to prevent others at these facilities from being exposed to the illness.

The single best way to prevent measles is to be vaccinated. In New York State, measles immunization is required of children enrolled in schools, daycare, and pre-kindergarten.

Given the large number of people in New York City daily, and the populated areas the tourist had gone to.
