ADDIS ABABA, Apr 16: Africa has seen a dramatic rise in measles cases of up to 700%, says the World Health Organization (WHO).
The UN agency also says the number of measles cases reported globally in the first three months of 2019 has tripled, compared to the same period last year. Provisional data shows a "clear trend", with all regions of the world seeing outbreaks, and the numbers could be higher since only one in 10 cases globally are reported, the WHO says.    -BBC
