India has the world’s worst record of measles deaths, a study of global data shows.
The report from the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, a global initiative, found that in 2016 India had 763 measles deaths.
This is the fifth year the country has been ranked among the worst places for measles deaths in the world.
The worst place is the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has seen more than 3,000 deaths in 2016.
In 2014, the country was ranked ninth, with 476 measles deaths and it is now the worst place in the survey.
This year, the government has been forced to tighten rules to reduce the spread of the virus.
It said that the country would have to vaccinate every person in 10,000 children under the age of five in order to combat the epidemic.
India also had the third worst record for cases in the past year.
This was due to the slow rate of vaccine uptake, according to the report.
More than 80% of the cases were in the northeastern states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
The country has had an outbreak of measles in the last few months, which started in the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
The government has started a vaccination campaign for the rest of the country.
In a bid to curb the spread, a team of government and private sector workers will be deployed in areas with low vaccination coverage.
A total of 1,500 vaccine doses have been distributed across the country in the first three months of the year.
