A dangerous and contagious virus is spreading in Australia after the disease was detected in a passenger on an Emirates flight at Melbourne Airport, just days after it was detected in Sydney.

Victoria Health confirmed the infected passenger arrived in Melbourne on February 14 at 10.50pm from Dubai, travelling on Emirates flight EK408.

The Melbourne International terminal is now listed as a public measles exposure site for the highly-contagious disease from February 14 and 15 from 10.50pm to 12.20am, and the domestic terminal is listed for February 15 from 1.30pm to 2.35pm.

“Anyone who has attended a listed exposure site during the specified date and time should monitor for symptoms and seek medical care if symptoms develop,” Victoria chief health officer Dr Clare Looker said.

“Anyone who develops symptoms of measles should seek medical care. Wear a mask and call ahead to make sure you can be isolated from others.”
