The Usti region in north Bohemia has reported an outbreak of measles. Over 70 people are said to have contracted the disease in the last few weeks. The infection is reported to have spread by a Czech tourist who contracted the disease while on holiday in India and on his return unwittingly exposed dozens of people. The regional hospital has ordered vaccines for its entire staff after two dozen of its doctors and nurses contracted the disease.
