Breaking News: Health Ministry Announces Measles Outbreak

The Ministry of Health has confirmed an outbreak of measles, affecting 14 of the 15 counties in the country.

The Chief Medical Officer of Liberia, Francis Kateh, said there were reports of deaths in the wake of the outbreak, but he was not sure if they were all measles-related.

He told a local radio programme that the outbreak was a result of low immunization rates.

The Health Ministry added that many parents stopped taking their children for vaccination since the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic.
