Measles Cause Israeli Flight Attendant To Be Comatose
According to CNN, An Israeli flight attendant has slipped into a coma after contracting measles, according to health officials.
The 43-year-old woman has encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain, a well-known and potentially deadly complication of the virus.
She was otherwise healthy before getting measles.
The flight attendant, who works for El Al, the Israeli national airline, might have contracted the virus in New York, in Israel or on a flight between the two.
Health authorities continue to indicate that the ongoing measles outbreaks in the United States and Israel started with parents who've chosen not to vaccinate their children.
