HOW IT IS CONTRACTED

The virus lives in the back of throat or throat in an infected person. The measles are very easily spread through physical contact, and coughing and sneezing. infected droplets of mucus can still remain infected out of the body even after many hours. This means that the virus can live outside the body- on door handles, and many different surfaces
