Measles Cases Hit Record High In Europe


Cases of measles in Europe have hit a record high, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Measles is highly infectious and spreads by droplets in coughs and sneezes. More than 41,000 people have been infected in the first six months of 2018, leading to 37 deaths.

Last year there were 23,927 cases and the year before 5,273. Experts blame this surge in infections on a drop in the number of people being vaccinated.


The MMR vaccine can prevent infection but discredited research 20 years ago that erroneously linked MMR to autism has stopped some people from trusting the vaccine.

  1. What do you expect people are coming from all over the world who don’t have good medical systems, from poorer nations and nations who don’t believe in injections for they are afraid that is some what controlling. Naturally the measles will be spreading like wild fire for there is nothing stopping it. So there is no mystery why there is such a large epidemic now so I don’t know why they are scratching their head with questions of why.

  2. Maybe because millions of people came from the Middle East so diseases that people were never immune to began to flourish?
    Instead of saying the vaccine hasn’t worked, they blame on those not vaccinated. How many of those gotten sick WERE vaccinated?

  3. “discredited research 20 years ago that erroneously linked MMR to autism”….what about auto immune diseases etc…? the logic here is deeply flawed.

  4. I heard the pro’s of getting vaccinated. Are there any con’s or side affect’s of getting vaccinated? I have a very delicate stomach.

  5. The drumbeat of hysteria over measles which is usually a mild illness in the developed world, continues. Yet nary a word about the hundreds of thousands of children in the USA who are diagnosed every year with a neurodevelopmental disorder such as ASD, ADHD, OCD etc. or the many children and adults being diagnosed with Autoimmune disorders and cancers. No mention of how the rates of these disorders have been rising exponentially since 1989 and how these disorders have been shown in the scientific literature to be linked to the increased numbers of vaccines following the 1986 vaccine injury act which removed product liability for vaccine injury from the pharmaceutical companies.
