Measles Diagnosis

Just spoke to physician from BCCDC. He told me that they are having problems with the diagnosis of measles using the measles serology. Almost all of the diagnosed cases have been thru nasal and urine PCR. For suspected cases, please make sure that you do nasal swabs and urine PCR for measles. These should be labelled as "query measles" and should be done stat.
