Qantas measles alert
Hundreds of people are being warned to watch out for measles symptoms after it was revealed a passenger aboard a Qantas flight into Sydney Airport had the highly contagious disease.
The man in his 20s flew from Manila aboard flight QF20 which landed in Australia on Friday about 6.30am. He then visited a medical centre in Sydney where symptoms were identified and isolation measures put in place.
NSW Health said yesterday that passengers on the flight and people at the airport on Friday morning should be alert until late January for symptoms.
