              Dead Sitakunda kids were suffering from measles: DGHS

              Nine children, who died, showing similar symptoms, in Sitakunda of Chittagong recently, were suffering from measles, according to Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

              The assertion came today after a medical team from Dhaka collected blood and serum samples from the affected children, and conducted laboratory tests.

              “The disease spread out through measles virus. But it won’t further spread,” Prof Dr Abul Kalam Azad, director general of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), told The Daily Star following the tests.

              Last reported, at least 87 children were also suffering from the same disease in remote hilly village Tripura Para area.
