From Morning Report, 8:22 am on 3 December 2019

Samoa's government will shut down on Thursday and Friday this week so all public sector workers can help with the country's mass measles vaccination campaign.

The death toll of the measles epidemic has risen to 53, and 183 people remain in hospital including 19 critically ill children and two pregnant women.
