Rubella

What is the Rubella? (CDC.com)

Rubella, sometimes called “German measles,” is a disease caused by a virus.

    • The infection usually contains fever with rashes.
    • Rubella spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes and touches objects or surfaces with unwashed hands.
      • The disease is most contagious when the infected person has a rash. But it can spread up to 7 days before the rash appears and up to 7 days after.
      • People without symptoms can still spread rubella.

Symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Tiredness
  • Loss of appetite

Symptoms typically appear 16-18 days after infection, but this period can range from 12–25 days after infection.
