📣 Measles alert for Brisbane
Metro South Public Health Unit (MSPHU) has confirmed a case of measles in an adult in the Brisbane area.
The person is believed t...o have visited the following locations while unknowingly infectious:
• Sunday, 11 March – Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
• Wednesday, 14 March 2018 – Woolworths in Marsden Fifth Avenue, Brisbane
• Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 14 – 16 March 2018 – Logan Hospital (Between 11pm on 14/3 until 7am on 15/3, and from 7-8pm 16/3).
The initial symptoms of measles include fever, lethargy, runny nose, moist cough and sore and red eyes. This is followed a few days later by a blotchy, red rash. The rash often starts on the face then becomes widespread over the body.
MSPHU is working with the health care facilities and venues where the person visited, and is urging anyone who was in those areas around the same time to ensure they are immune to measles.
Contact your GP or call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) for more information. If you have any of the measles symptoms contact your GP and remember it is VERY important to call the medical practice first if you think you might have measles, so that staff can take precautions to avoid you spreading it to others.

Does any one know what happened to the old dragon ride up at the Myer centre tops ???
Do you know what happened to the Myer Centre dragon roller coaster?
Hi all - my name's Patrick and I'm a journalist at ABC News here in Brisbane. I'm hoping you... may be able to help me out with a feature I'm currently writing for our Curious Brisbane initiative.
The big question is - what happened to the dragon roller coaster from Tops?
I found these photos on an 2005 listing on amusementz.com.au - apparently it's the roller coaster (transformed into a trackless train). It was up for sale by a Robert Crofts. I tried the number listed + email but no luck.
I'm hoping there may be some members here in Old Brisbane Album who could help with my investigation. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all - Pat
