Have you ever had measles or German measles?

When I was young, I really heard about measles. As long as there is a child in the class who has measles, the instructor must ask him to rest at home and not go to school to avoid transmission to other children. However, if the adults find out too late to stop the infection, the infection will spread everywhere in the class or even on the campus, and almost half of the students will have to be isolated and treated at home.
The severity of the spread depends on the extent of his activities of the kid who started to get sick!
The greater the range of activities of a person, the greater the scope of spreading infection. Anyone who has been in contact with him or who has breathed the same piece of air is likely to be infected!

Measles is highly contagious. Before the vaccine is used, measles is considered to be inevitable in childhood. More than 99% of people will be infected. It can be said that almost everyone can hardly escape measles in their life.

People with "measles antibodies" in their bodies can be immune!

Is it true that I won’t get measles a second time?
Medically, it has been proven that measles usually get measles once, not a second time. Only about one in a thousand people get the first time and will get the second time.

Anyone who has never had measles or has not been vaccinated against measles can get measles.
The baby's antibodies from the mother lasts only about 6-9 months;
People who have had measles have lifelong immunity.
Natural infection or vaccination can produce permanent immunity.

There are only two ways to get measles antibodies: 1. I have had it before, 2. Vaccination
