Hence until spots arrive you would think you just had a bad cold which makes it hard to contain when people don't stay home when they are sick.
I thought you were saying measles was like having a cold. Sorry -lost in internet translation.
If people stayed home sick I think that would be helpful in containing some diseases, its things like whooping cough that are hard because its starts as some tiny sniffle and takes weeks to develop into the whooping cough part. So difficult.
