Children Are Still Dying from Measles in Nigeria's Borno State

MSF has revealed that at least 58 people have been killed by measles in Borno State since January. Measles is a highly contagious infectious disease caused by a virus. The infection is fatal, especially for children. Children with measles come from internally displaced people's camps and also from the host community. Government and humanitarian agencies have vaccinated more than 1,2 million children aged between six months and six years.
