The present work deals with the construction, development, and analysis of a viable normalized predictor-corrector-type nonstandard finite difference scheme for the SEIR model concerning the transmission dynamics of measles. The proposed numerical scheme double refines the solution and gives realistic results even for large step sizes, thus making it economical when integrating over long time periods. Moreover, it is dynamically consistent with a continuous system and unconditionally convergent
