Incidence of measles in the world has increased by 30 percent, may be counter-expectorance



Carriers are highly contagious viral diseases that can lead to blindness and death.

Incident measles last year rose 30 percent worldwide, World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday.

In its report, the worrying trend of increasing the number of infections of measles is almost global, but with various causes in some regions, AFP reported.

In Europe, a misinformation campaign against the vaccine is growing, according to scientists. Martin Friede, coordinator of the WHO vaccine research initiative, said in this regard that "pseudoexperts who show vaccination without any evidence" often influence parents' decision, regardless of whether the vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective.

Friede particularly reminded of non-verbal claims linking autism autism vaccine, which is spread on social networks by members of the so-called autism autism. "Anti-Vax" movement.

Very dangerous disease

However, the frequency of this highly contagious disease has increased in the United States, according to WHO findings.

But this phenomenon is related to "the collapse of the health system in Venezuela". As a result of economic difficulties and hyperinflation, Venezuelan hospitals can not afford a sufficient amount of vaccine.

Representatives of the World Health Organization emphasized that the fight against measles worldwide had impressive results in this century. In 2000, there were 850,000 cases of this disease worldwide, and the number fell to 173,000 to 2017.

According to Ann Lindstrand, WHO Immunization Specialist, the current deterioration of the status of scientists in the context of the success of the last decade "is even more frustrating".
