OSAKA -- The Osaka Prefectural Government on Sept. 4 announced four new cases of measles following an outbreak among Kansai International Airport workers.

    The latest cases, including a doctor who treated the workers, bring the total number of infected people to 35. Also infected were a staff member, a paramedic and a man in his 30s.

    The man in his 30s had visited the Rinku Premium Outlets shopping center located across from Kansai International Airport, in the city of Izumisano, but apparently did not use the airport itself.
