However, it is induced by a different virus than measles and is neither as infectious nor usually as severe as measles.

It can spread when an infected person sneezes or coughs or it can spread by direct contact with an infected person's respiratory secretions, such as mucus. It can also be caused from a pregnant woman to her unborn child through the bloodstream. A person with it is contagious from 10 days before the onset of the rash until about one or two weeks after the rash disappears. An infected person can propagate the illness before the person perceives he or she has it.
