An Overview of Measles Images

The measles virus is the cause of measles (also known as rubeola). Measles virus is a single-stranded RNA virus, from the family Paramyxovirus, of the genus Morbillivirus. It is closely related to the rinderpest and canine distemper viruses.
 
The measles virus only infects humans. Measles virus is rapidly inactivated by heat, light, acidic pH, ether, and trypsin (an enzyme). It has a short survival time (under 2 hours) in the air, on objects, and on surfaces.
