Measles situation in Samoa
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 17 October 2019
“Following the declaration of a measles epidemic in Samoa, the health ministry says emergency procedures are underway as the government anticipates cases will escalate.
“Health staff were being redirected, with plans for an isolation unit to quarantine measles patients and a push for the public to get their MMR vaccinations, said the ministry's Deputy Director General of Public Health, Robert Thomsen.
“He said if the New Zealand measles outbreak was not brought under control soon the epidemic would only worsen for Samoa.”
