Toleafoa Dr. Viali Lameko has called for a national inquiry into how the recent measles epidemic spread so far across Samoa so quickly and has left a total of 75 people dead. 

Toleafoa is the first member of the medical fraternity to speak out on the issue of a national inquiry. Though he is the Vice-Chancellor of the Oceania University of Medicine he stressed he was speaking in a personal capacity as a doctor and that he believed a “majority” of physicians supported his call.
