Patient story - Nastasia’s story – ECDC/Euronews video
Nastasia has made a spectacular recovery. Just a year ago she was in a coma after contracting measles. The 16-year old who lives in Valence, in south eastern France, suddenly complained of a sore throat, red spots appeared and she had a high temperature. After one week at 41°C, she was hospitalised, diagnosed with measles encephalitis.
