Explaining the US measles outbreak – BBC News

A county in New York state has declared a state of emergency following a severe outbreak of measles, but what’s behind the rise in the number of cases?

The announcement in Rockland County follows other outbreaks of the disease in Washington, California, Texas and Illinois.
Vaccination rates have dropped steadily in the US with many parents objecting for philosophical or religious reasons, or because they believe discredited information that vaccines cause autism in children.

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 314 cases of measles currently reported in the US.

BBC Health correspondent Smitha Mundasad looks the reasons behind the increase.

  1. Thank you Jenny Mc Carthy. People's blood is on your hands. I feel especially bad for those who cannot get vaccines, and rely on the 'herd' immunity to protect them.

  2. I believe there has been Measles,Cholera outbreaks in Yemen as well, 15 million women and children suffering in horrific circumstances,but nevermind the US is much more important.

  3. It's not from American Citizens children, this is from the massive influx of illegals and their offspring who have absolutely no vaccinations. In the central valley of California when I was doing my medical rotations I would see multiple illegals everyday in the E.R. that had no vaccinations, none, not a single one. There are 40k illegals in merced county alone now calculate the number without vaccinations.

  4. When I was a kid everyone got the measles and nobody had any issues with it. Are today’s generation snowflake so weak they can’t handle it, or is the vaccination program a NWO clandestine operation. . . . . They can, and do, put all sorts of crap in them shots.

  5. MOST DEADLY DISEASES INCLUDING MEASLES, BIRD FLU , SWINE FLU , ETC ARE MAN MADE TO DEPOPULATE AND TO CREATE EXCUSES TO IMPOSE THEIR VACCINE WEAPONS ON YOUR CHILDREN TO HARM THEM AND EITHER WAY , THEY
    CAN BE HARMED , UNLESS YOU GIVE THE REAL HONORABLE OR DIGNIFIED MINDED WITH SINCERELY HUMANE HEARTED NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIANS A CHANCE TO SHOW YOU THEY HAVE A CURE WITH NO NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS AND NOT DANGEROUSLY ADDICTIVE EITHER.

  8. Vaccines are really ineffective due to them weakening the immune system and rendering the person a carrier of a disease. When it comes to combating diseases, it is inconsequential if person is vaccinated or not, due to disease being spread by those who are vaccinated and the carrier thinking they are invulnerable due to being vaccinated until the vaccine wears off. The only sure way you can defend yourself from disease is by good hygiene and nutrition as vaccines are more harmful than helpful due to the chemicals in vaccines that cause the problem of shell shock (otherwise known as PTSD) and creates more problems from trying to solve one problem (much like pharmaceutical drugs).

  9. Religion needs to be outlawed. Immunization should be mandatory. They are endangering their own kids and the general public. I live 3 miles from where one epidemic is emerging. Reckless Endangerment and Child Abuse. Those people need a mental check.

  10. My parents didn't give me this vaccination and i got measles by 9th grade and became a bit severe. Like rashes everywhere and even inside my eyes, close to blindness etc . One week of suffering. And the antibiotics worked . But the after effect those still last after almost 10 years.

    My parents where aware of it enough i guess. Please give the preventive measure. I don't think it's bad as those antibiotics …

  11. Questions to answer: 1) Are people dying from measles in the US? 2) Do people get severe adverse reactions (including disability and death) from vaccines? This would be a real explanation of the US measles outbreak.

  12. "I wasn't vaccinated and I'm fine", "it's my right not to vaccinate my kids", "Fake news from Big Pharma", "If all the other kids are vaccinated, my unvaccinated kids can't be a threat"……
    A word of advice, don't waste your time on anyone spouting any of these arguments. Hopeless.

  13. " thank him!" The rapist who stole a human life,a human right to family to privacy to personal property he helps to hide through theft." Thank him!"A evil evil evil hated toxic disease of a man.The television industry behind him who put people in prison the poorest for not buying a television license and itv for pushing young people to suicide.No he won't get thanks.Explain it to a judge Mr"thank him".

  14. It's strong propaganda, i must say! Statistics! '20 million lives saved'. That's a nice round figure anyway. Check out the 'side' effects of the various vaccines, including the company sales figures.
