The Monitoring and Tracking Department of the National Centre for Disease Control has launched an immunization campaign against measles and rubella on the backdrop of several reported cases.

In its report on the measles eradication program, the department clarified that the campaign targeted neighbourhoods in Ghiran area of Misurata, in addition to other areas in Wadi Ataba, covering around 7 thousand children.

Around 63 cases of suspected measles and rubella were tracked last October where 12 measles cases and 8 rubella ones were confirmed, while 5 other cases were detected to have rubella/measles co-infection.
