The perennial warnings about measles and dangers the virus poses to the unvaccinated are back: with emphasis on three “distinct outbreaks” in Oeiras, Cascais and Madeira.

The number of people so far affected appears to be under 40, reports Diário de Notícias.

In Cascais there have been 24 confirmed cases (with two more under investigation). The outbreak “originated from the Ukraine”.

Oeiras – not so far from Cascais – has seen five confirmed cases, with the source traced to the Czech Republic.

In Madeira three cases are “being investigated”.
