article imageThe Mumps Are in Toronto

By KJ Mullins     May 15, 2007 in Health
The mumps have come to Toronto. Three cases have been reported inside the city. Following the recent cases in Nova Scotia, it seems the disease has been brought to town from there.
I reported a few weeks ago about the mumps outbreak in Nova Scotia. At this time there have been 222 confirmed cases of mumps. With the university school year ending the mumps could be across Canada if precaution isn't taken.
Patrons eating at Super Market Restaurant at 268 Augusta Ave. on May 10th may have been exposed to the disease.
"Toronto Public Health investigators have been unable to identify all of the individuals who shared drinks or cigarettes with this ill person to inform them of their potential exposure to mumps," a release reads. Mumps can be spread through saliva and something as simple as drinking out of an infected person's glass or sneezing can infect someone who's never had it before.
