VANCOUVER - Another case of measles has been recorded in British Columbia, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the province to 27.
Officials with Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health say the latest case involves a Metro Vancouver resident who returned to Vancouver International Airport on April 13 aboard a Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo.
A news release from the health authorities says the patient acquired measles while abroad, but was in several places around the Lower Mainland while infectious.
It says unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated travellers may have been exposed if they were on flight JL018 on Saturday, or if they visited the Ramada Hotel in Coquitlam, its restaurant or the Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby on Sunday.
