    Samoa's state of emergency over its measles epidemic, is being extended until after Christmas

    Samoa's state of emergency over its measles epidemic, is being extended until after Christmas


    It means children will be excluded from public gatherings until December 29.

    All under-14s must show proof of immunisation before boarding any inter-island ferry in Samoa.

    About 93 per cent of all eligible people in the island nation have been vaccinated against measles.

    The death toll remains at 72.
