Punjab measles death toll rises to nine
[Dawn] A one-year-old child who had been suffering from measles died in Lahore on Wednesday, taking the corpse count in the current outbreak in Punjab to nine, DawnNews reported.

The child passed away in Lahore's Children's Hospital where he had been admitted for treatment.

Official figures say nine deaths due to measles had so far been reported in the province, whereas over 1,400 children were currently suffering from the disease.

Moreover, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had earlier directed the provincial administration to come up with an emergency plan to ensure vaccination in order to eliminate the disease.

The outbreak of the disease in Punjab comes as Sindh continues to battle the epidemic which has claimed over 200 lives in the southern province.
