Most of the dead are children under four years old, and the number of infections in that age group is still on the rise. More than 1700 children less than four years old are infected with the disease.

At Lalomanu District Hospital nurse Selwyn Amataga said many parents who had been initially apprehensive about vaccinating their children are now coming forward to ensure they get the jab.

Limited vaccine numbers meant they had to prioritise children, but he said the authorities are quick at supplying more when needed.

And he was relieved 100,000 more vaccines from New Zealand will be arriving soon, but he’s worried about the growing number of infections.

There are nearly 200 people with measles who are in-patients at health facilities, and the admissions include 21 critically ill children and two pregnant women.

On Friday Director General of Health Leausa Dr Take Naseri said more children needed to be reached and vaccinated.

“We are still not satisfied with the coverage of the six months to the four years. We still haven’t crossed 40 percent of that age group,” he said.

RCMP investigating five-car crash in Port Coquitlam – CTV News

November 30th, 2019

VANCOUVER — RCMP are investigating a four-car crash at Westwood Street and Lougheed Highway in Port Coquitlam that sent five people to hospital.

Police were called to the intersection just after 6 p.m. One of the cars is a marked police cruiser, and the officer driving that car was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

The RCMP’s Criminal Crash Investigation Team is now investigating, but it’s too soon for police to say whether the crash is considered criminal in nature.

RCMP are warning the public that the intersection at Westwood and Lougheed will be closed for some time because of the crash.

At least 14 killed in bloody gunfight in northern Mexico – The Globe and Mail

November 30th, 2019

Ten suspected cartel gunmen and four police were killed during a daytime shootout on Saturday in a Mexican town near the U.S. border, days after U.S. President Donald Trump raised bilateral tensions by saying he would designate the gangs as terrorists.

The government of the northern state of Coahuila said state police clashed with a group of heavily armed gunmen riding in pickup trucks in the small town of Villa Union, about 65 km southwest of the border city of Piedras Negras.

Standing outside the Villa Union mayor’s bullet-ridden offices, Coahuila governor Miguel Angel Riquelme told reporters the state had acted “decisively” to tackle the gunmen, who he said had entered from the neighboring state of Tamaulipas.

Riquelme said 10 gunmen had been killed, three of them by officers in pursuit of the gang members after the gunfight that claimed the lives of four police and wounded six more.

Around midday, heavy gunfire began ringing out in Villa Union, and a convoy of armed pickup trucks could be seen moving around the town, according to video clips posted by social media users. Others showed plumes of smoke rising from the town.

Reuters could not vouch for their authenticity.

An unspecified number of people were also missing, including some who were at the mayor’s office, the governor said.

Riquelme said authorities had identified 14 vehicles involved in the attacks and seized more than a dozen guns.

The outbreak of violence occurred during a testing week for President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who on Friday said he would not accept any foreign intervention in Mexico to deal with violent criminal gangs after Trump’s comments.

Lopez Obrador said Mexico would handle the problem, a view echoed by Riquelme as he spoke to reporters.

“I don’t think that Mexico needs intervention. I think Mexico needs collaboration and cooperation,” said Riquelme, whose party is in opposition to Lopez Obrador. “We’re convinced that the state has the power to overcome the criminals.”

In an interview aired on Tuesday, Trump said he planned to designate the cartels as terrorist organizations, sparking concerns the move could serve as a prelude to the United States trying to intervene unilaterally in Mexico.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr is due to visit Mexico next week to discuss cooperation over security.

Lopez Obrador took office a year ago pledging to pacify the country after more than a decade of gang-fueled violence.

A series of recent security lapses has raised questions about the left-leaning administration’s strategy.

Criticism has focused on the Nov. 4 massacre of nine women and children of U.S.-Mexican origin from Mormon communities in northern Mexico, and the armed forces’ release of a captured son of drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman under pressure from cartel gunmen in the city of Culiacan.

Coahuila has a history of gang violence, though the homicide total in the state is well below where it was seven years ago. National homicide levels are pushing record levels.
