ANOTHER MEASLES DEATH: El Al flight attendant dies after contracting the measles


An El Al flight attendant passed away months after reportedly contracting the measles from a passenger on a flight.

The 43-year-old woman became unwell on the flight in April and suffered brain injuries. A 10-year-old on the flight also suffered irreversible brain damage.

It is the third death third from measles in Israel since November.

The stewardess, who has not been named, suffered brain damage due to complications from the virus and had been in an induced coma, according to media reports.


  1. what happened to the 1 in 500,000 claim? seems to me the 1 in 1,000 estimate is right on target, unfortunately. And that’s besides for the people severely damaged by the measles this year. I can list 4 people.
    Hashem yeracheim!
