Manila, Philippines: cases of measles flooded hospitals in Manila, in which seven were reported dead due to lack of vaccination for the infectious disease.
Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III made the declaration during a media conference urging parents to vaccinate their children, the Bangkok Post reported.
Based on validated data, Duque said 575 cases including nine deaths have been recorded in Calabarzon, a figure that represented a 2,538 increase over the measles cases reported past year.
In addition to the NCR area, health officials are also closely monitoring the Ilocos region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa (Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), Bicol region, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Cordillera region, and Caraga for measles.
According to Unicef estimates, about 2.5 million children under five years old are not vaccinated for measles.
In Region 4-A, the province with the highest number of measles cases is Rizal with 226, followed by Laguna with 115; Batangas, 114; Cavite, 87; and Quezon, 18, the regional office said.
Authorities said vaccination rates in the Philippines have been declining for years, but also pointed to the recent controversy over the safety of the Dengvaxia dengue vaccine. This led the DOH to suspend its immunisation programme that had begun under then President Benigno Aquino III.
