Three more cases of measles have been confirmed in Taiwan, bringing the number to 11 since the beginning of the year, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said Friday.

The three new cases include a woman in her 20s, who came in contact with a measles patient living in northern Taiwan, confirmed as an imported case from Vietnam on Jan. 16, and another two imported cases — one man in his 30s from Haiphong City, Vietnam and a 7-year-old girl from Manila, the Philippines, according to a CDC statement.

The three new patients developed symptoms from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2, the CDC said in its statement.

Of the 11 measles cases confirmed this year, eight were imported, four from Vietnam and the Philippines each, and three indigenous cases, it indicated.    [FULL  STORY]
