The director of health protection for Public Health Wales says she fears 'it is only a matter of time' before someone dies as a result of the latest measles outbreak.
We cannot emphasise enough that measles is an illness that can kill, or leave patients with permanent complications including severe brain damage.
As children have been admitted to hospital because of this outbreak of measles we fear it is only a matter of time before someone dies or is left permanently affected by measles.
Public Health Wales is urging parents to ensure their children are fully vaccinated against measles, saying it is 'the only effective way' of protecting against the illness.
It added that it is working closely with Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board to combat the outbreak.
