Measles is a highly contagious virus (easily spreads to others) that spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is so contagious that if one person has measles, up to 9 out of 10 people around that person will also become infected if they are not protected. Vaccines are recommended to prevent measles.
