Measles outbreak confirmed: Cruise crew infected by virus

A sea cruise is supposed to be fun, relaxing and take your mind off all the stresses of the world. It is after all a vacation.

A cruise ship sailed out of the Mediterranean Sea according to the Italian public health authorities on Feb. 27 with a crew of forty from the Costa Pacifica in Civitavecchia, Italy. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) released a report called a Rapid Risk Assessment on March 6 stating the members of the crew were all tested and their urine samples all showed measles were present.
