    BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya: At least nine more have been added to the list of measles patients here in less than two weeks and four in Quirino province, reports said. Health officials said this landlocked province has been experiencing an increase of measles cases since November, which included the death of a one-year-old boy; this has prompted the Department of Health to declare an outbreak of the virus here. Nearly 40 cases of measles have been monitored since November. Provincial Health Officer chief Dr. Edwin Galapon said that five of the suspected measles cases have been laboratory confirmed.
