Why has measles returned to the US
Measles returned to the United States. This easily preventable disease was eliminated in the 2000 year, but in the last 10 years the disease has returned, writes VOX.
In the first three months of 2019, more people got measles than in the entire 2018 year. Outbreaks of the disease do not occur throughout the US — this happens only among certain groups of people.
Dissemination of information against vaccination can lead to a decrease in the number of children who are immune to the disease. The smaller in the group of vaccinated children, the greater the risk that the whole group could lose their “normal immunity”.
When this happens in small, cohesive groups of people, measles can spread like wildfire. 75% of all recent measles cases have occurred in these small communities.
To be sure that you are protected from measles, you need to be vaccinated. In most states, parents are allowed to refuse to vaccinate their children - and this leads to the fact that measles is reborn.
