The first reports of disease outbreaks measles and diarrhea in Sri Lanka:
With concerns that disease could kill tens of thousands, the speed of the effort was crucial, especially the need to provide clean drinking water. In Sri Lanka, health authorities reported cases of measles and diarrhea, and people in many areas were prone to the threat of cholera, malaria and dehydration.
In these conditions its going to spread like wildfire

measles! Geez-louise...you know, just when you think you can't be surprised by something in this. I would have not been surprised at diseases being reported any time now...but I have to say measles was not on my radar screen.
