New measles surveillance data is now available on the WHO website. This preliminary data is based on country reports submitted monthly to WHO. Please note that these are not final estimates as countries are still reporting cases and discarding cases based on laboratory results. Through WHO and UNICEF’s joint reporting channels, final official annual total numbers are made available in July of the following year.

Data from this summary should therefore be reported as provisional and clearly dated (i.e. “provisional data based on monthly reports to WHO (Geneva) as of August 2019”).
