As of 26 January there have been 1,813 measles cases and 26 deaths, according to the Department of Health Epidemiology Bureau. For the whole year of 2018, NCR registered 3, 646 measles cases as to against 351 cases in 2017.

The measles cases at San Lazaro now total more than half of the 2,654 cases it had for the whole of previous year.

Four hundred forty one cases were reported in metropolitan Manila, which spans 16 cities and one town, a 1,125 per cent increase from past year.

At least 22 people, mostly children, have died but the tally is expected to rise.

Without referring to Acosta by name, Duque said the "drama that they were doing ... really caused a damage to the integrity and effectiveness of the DOH to conduct and ensure that there will be adequate immunization coverage so that [the public] will be protected from vaccine-preventable diseases". "In the recent years, it was the issue of Dengvaxia vaccine that contributed", he added, as the government pushed parents to get children vaccinated.

Health staff deputed on all entry points to Pakistan has been alerted to monitor passengers arriving from the Philippines, which is in the grip of a measles outbreak. "I urge parents and communities to take their children to the health center to be immunized".

"Vaccinations to prevent measles is available free of cost in government health centers".

The health department recently said that 830,000 school children aged 9 and older were given the drug, a revision from an earlier estimate of 740,000. "You know, the President is always affected by any negative outcome that relates to children".

"He was saddened... That's why he wanted something done immediately", presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo told reporters.

This was largely blamed on the government's public attorney, Persida Acosta, who said she was preparing legal action against Aquino and Duque for dozens of deaths she attributed to Dengvaxia use. "As far as she is concerned, she is doing her job of protecting the parents of the [children who] she perceived to be dying by reason of Dengvaxia".

The Department of Health is advising parents to be vigilant and vaccinate their children, especially since 2.4 million Filipino children are unvaccinated and are at risk of contracting the highly contagious disease, CNN Philippines reported. "Why deprive them of protection just because of a controversy involving one vaccine?" The party-list group Anakalusugan supported the call for an intensified campaign to promote vaccination of children.
