It is true that an outbreak of disease caused by a previously unknown 
morbillivirus occurred recently in Australia. A number of horses were 
affected and there was one confirmed fatal human case in an indvidual 
working closely with these horses.  Another individual was infected with 
the virus but survived.  The outbreak was controlled quickly by 
Australian animal health authorities and to my knowledge no further cases 
have been diagnosed.
