Measles is an acute respiratory infection disease caused by measles virus, i.e. a paramyxovirus of the genus Morbillivirus. Measles is spread through sneezing, cough and talking and is highly contagious.
Based on the National Measles Monitoring Protocol, China CDC developed reporting system of Measles Monitoring Information in 2009 which reported individual cases of measles, lab results, and pathogen detection, and epidemics outbreak.
Ninety percent of people who share the same living space with infected people will catch it. Measles could occur all over the year, but winter and spring could increase the chance to develop measles. In China, the highest prevalence occurs among children from 6 months to 5 years old. Due to the long-term vaccination project in recently years in China, epidemic intensity of measles weakened.
This database included all information of individual measles patients, lab test results, pathogen detection results, epidemics outbreak and other statistics.
