The Director of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Haider Al-Sayeh, has called on the relevant departments to prepare an urgent action plan to combat the measles disease in the country after recording measles cases in the southern region.

This came during an expanded meeting held by Al-Sayeh with the directors of departments and technical offices operating at the NCDC to study the epidemiological situation in the country.

He called for carrying out a vaccination campaign in the regions and some cities in the south to limit the spread of the disease and to protect citizens and residents inside the country.
