Over 160 million children 'missed measles vaccination'
More than 160 million children around the world missed out on measles vaccinations between 2010 and 2017 - according to a new report by the UN children's agency, UNICEF.
The organisation warns that such large numbers of unvaccinated children raises the threat of a major resurgence of measles.
There have already been 100,000 cases reported around the world in the first quarter of 2019.
Dr Robin Nandy - UNICEF’s Principal Advisor & Chief of Immunizations - explains why they are so concerned.
