Noted with thanks Carrie. With the world being brought closer together with air travel, virus's like this seem to be carried around.
WE have had an outbreak of measles in Canada recently, which I fail to understand, as children used to be vaccinated in school for measles, mumps, and chicken pox, and a few years later were given a booster shot. Apparently the first case here in Alberta was from a child returning from Asia (I think it was China).
