Since the last Epidemiological Update for measles issued by the Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) on 16 March 2018, two additional countries in the Region of the Americas have confirmed measles cases: Argentina (1 case) and Ecuador (1 case). This brings the total number of countries with confirmed measles cases since the beginning of 2018 until epidemiological week (EW) 14 to 11. This figure is higher than in 2017, when four countries reported confirmed measles cases in the Region: Argentina (3 cases), Canada (45), the United States of America (120), and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (727 cases).
