WHO Raises Concern About Scale of Measles Outbreak in Zimbabwe

The World Health Organization said it’s concerned about an ongoing measles outbreak in Zimbabwe, where the disease is spreading rapidly.

“It’s the first in many years at this scale and it’s been progressing quickly among a community that is reticent to accept vaccines,” Fiona Braka, team lead for emergency operations at the WHO, said in an online briefing to reporters Thursday.
