Mérida International Airport travelers warned about possible measles exposure

The arrival of foreign tourists to the city of Merida has placed the “White City” on a state of alert, due to the impressive measles outbreak in the United States.

The airport of the city of Merida has taken measures to prevent measles from spreading with the arrival of thousands of travelers coming from the neighboring country. Several sanitary filters have been installed, similar to the ones implemented in other international terminals, in order to prevent measles and other contagious diseases from spreading in the state capital and the rest of the Yucatán.

Electronic screens have been installed in different parts of the airport, to warn about the risk of infection for those who travel to the United States and other countries where there are massive outbreaks of measles. One of the main sources of infection is in New York where dozens of cases of measles have been registered in recent days.
