Four cases have been confirmed in south Auckland and seven in west Auckland. Auckland Regional Public Health Service says being immunised is the only protection against the serious disease. Serious cases can lead to hospi- talisation or death. If you or your child develops measles you are required to be excluded from work and school until you're no longer infectious,'' clinical director Julia Peters says. I strongly urge parents and fam- ilies to check that their children's immunisations are up-to-date. In addition, adults who are unsure whether they are immune should check with their family doctor,'' Dr Peters says. Measles can't be treated once you get it, so the only way to prevent the disease is through immunis- ation. Anyone displaying symptoms should phone their doctor or call Healthline on 0800-611-116 for advice. Symptoms include fever, cough, runny or blocked nose, sore, red eyes and white spots inside the mouth. After three to five days a rash appears on the head and then moves down the body. Act plans Botany win Political goals: Act MP Sir Roger Douglas with Lyn Murphy, the party's candidate for the Botany byelection. Photo: ROB McELDOWNEY By MATT BOWEN THE Act Party intends to win the Botany byelection. Business lecturer Lyn Murphy has won the party's candidate nomi- nation and she says the party is taking the March 5 vote very seriously''. If National candidate Jami-Lee Ross gets in he's going to toe the party line,'' the Howick resident says. He's going to have no power whatsoever. But if Botany puts an Act candidate in there who's allowed to vote how they want to, then that candidate can vote in the interest of Botany.'' Politically, she puts herself to the left of Mr Ross and to the right of Labour's Michael Wood. I am the person for the central voter,'' she says. Public spending and the economy will form the basis of her campaign. It's very much looking to the future saying how can we set the economy right now so there will be a future for our children and grand- children. I believe that we have got to take a very close look at government spending.'' She takes the Families Com- mission as an example. They do a huge amount of research for families. They're going to tell us shortly that families are not coping well with the economy in the state it's in. But is it the best use of taxpayer money to actually pay for the research or would it have been bet- ter to have given that money straight to families?'' Mrs Murphy says the fact she's a local with broad knowledge and experience'' will appeal to voters. That's what I've got against my opponents who have not had the business or industry experience -- they're basically politicians.'' The 51-year-old is well educated. The former occupational thera- pist has a bachelor degree in psy- chology, a masters in business majoring in management communi- cation and she's now putting the final touches on a PhD investigating the costs and benefits of medical research. She also has practical experience running successful'' businesses with her husband and is a member of the Counties Manukau District Health Board. She plans to door knock, hold public meetings and meet residents at malls. We're going to have every Act MP come down from Parliament to spend time visiting the people of Botany,'' she says. We believe we can win. This is the turning point for Act.''
