Kenya: Measles Cases Reported

Via All Africa :

" Two more cases of measles have been reported in Mombasa and one confirmed. The total number of reported cases is now 16 with five confirmed.

The two were reported at Mewa Hospital in King'orani. District Public Health Officer Mohammed Masudi said the two cases are from Bakarani in Kisauni constituency.

"Bakarani has become the latest area to have had measles cases. This means we have to increase our area of coverage despite the limited resources we have so far," said Masudi.

Masudi said they are currently using routine vaccines that were supplied by the Public Health ministry, but they need more to handle the outbreak"
