|UNITED NATIONS Authentic Jake Arrieta Jersey , Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- Annual deaths from measles dropped below 100,000 to 90,000 for the first time last year, United Nations and other international agencies reported on Thursday.
"We have seen substantial drop in measles deaths for more than two decades, but now we must strive to reach zero measles cases," said Jean-Marie Okwo-Bele, Director of the World Health Organization's (WHO) Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals, in a joint statement on Thursday for the Measles and Rubella Initiative (MR&I).
The study, published by MR&I, a partnership formed in 2001 between the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), WHO, UN Foundation, American Red Cross, and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, marks the first time that global measles deaths have fallen below 100,000 per year.
"Measles elimination will only be reached if measles vaccines reach every child, everywhere," added Okwo-Bele.
Since 2000, an estimated 5.5 billion doses of measles-containing vaccines have been provided to children through routine immunization services and mass vaccination campaigns, saving an estimated 20.4 million lives.
However, the world is still far from reaching regional measles elimination goals.
According to the joint statement, people being treated with the first of two vaccine-required doses have stalled at approximately 85 percent since 2009, far short of the 95 percent coverage needed to stop the infections, and coverage with the second dose, despite recent increases, was only 64 percent in 2016.
Some 20.8 million children are still missing their first measles vaccine dose, more than half of whom live in six countries. Nigeria has 3.3 million unvaccinated children; India has 2.9 million; Pakistan, 2 million; Indonesia, 1.2 million; Ethiopia, 0.9 million; and in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 0.7 million are not immunized.
Since measles is a highly contagious viral disease, large outbreaks continue to occur in these and other countries in Europe and North America, putting children at risk of severe health complications, such as pneumonia, diarrhoea, encephalitis, blindness and death.

SEOUL, April 14 (Xinhua) -- Imported product prices in South Korea fell for the second straight month on cheaper crude oil and the local currency's ascent to the U.S. dollar, central bank data showed Friday.
The import price index stood at 81.52 in March, down 2 percent from the previous month, according to the Bank of Korea (BOK). The index declined 2.1 percent in February on a monthly basis.
Lower import prices followed the fall in prices for Dubai crude, which averaged 51.20 dollars per barrel in March. It was 5.9 percent lower than the prior month.
The wondollar exchange rate averaged 1,134.77 won per dollar in March, down 0.9 percent from the prior month.

SEOUL, June 5 -- The South Korean government announced its first supplementary budget plan on Monday to create jobs, especially in public sectors.
The extra budget plan worth 11.2 trillion won (10 billion U.S. dollars) was approved during the cabinet meeting, according to the Ministry of Strategy and Finance.
It was scheduled to be submitted to the National Assembly Wednesday. If approved in the extra parliamentary session, the budget was expected to be implemented from July.
The extra budget was anticipated to create about 71,000 jobs in the public sector, including 12,000 government officials, and some 39,000 jobs in the private sector.
It marked the third straight year that the government allotted a supplementary budget worth over 10 trillion won.
This year's extra budget was not expected to influence the fiscal soundness as the budget would be financed by a rise in tax revenue.
On his campaign trail, President Moon Jae-in pledged to become a "job-creating" president, indicating that his major economic policy would be centered on employment.
Moon vowed to focus on income-based economic growth by creating more decent jobs and reducing irregular workers.
The unemployment rate among those aged 15-29 surged to 11.2 percent in April, while the number of youths unemployed reached 1.2 million.
A senior finance ministry official told a press briefing that it would mark the first time that the government drew up the extra budget plan only for job creation.
