The measles outbreak in Korea continues to grow.
There are now a total of 30 cases... after three new ones were reported in areas previously free of the disease, including Seoul.
According to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the three new patients are in Seoul, Gyeonggi-do Province and Jeollanam-do Province -- all separate cases.
The patients are in their thirties and recently returned from trips overseas to Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines.
The first case was found last December in Daegu.
As with the three new ones, experts believe that in the other 27 cases, the virus was carried in from outside the country.
The measles is spread by sneezing or coughing.
