Viral News: North Korea

Feb 20, 2007

A MEASLES epidemic has hit North Korea, causing at least four deaths and infecting some 3000 people.
Measles has been found in 30 North Korean counties since the outbreak started in November, the Red Cross said. "The continued presence of the measles is accompanied by a risk of increasing cases and the further spread of the illness to other parts of the country," it said. North Korean health authorities notified the Red Cross, World Health Organisation (WHO) and other international bodies of the outbreak last week and the impoverished state requested five million doses of measles vaccine.
