[COMMUNICATED] As more cases of measles grow up in Lakewood due to unvaccinated individuals, the UN released a report showing that cases of measles rose 30% worldwide last year. The World Health Organization, a UN body, entered the anti-wax movement to be a primary cause of disease emergence. Martin Friede, WHO Immunization Director, said the parents were convinced not to vaccinate their children by “suspected experts who made charges against the vaccine without any evidence”.
Friede said outbreaks of measles have occurred more often even in countries where vaccination levels are generally high. He said that this indicates that vaccination levels actually recover, a phenomenon that could potentially lead to a worldwide measles epidemic.

A WHO immunization expert expressed frustration over measles return and noted that the vaccine has proven safe in dozens of studies. “We have a safe and effective vaccine … this is not rocket science. We know what to do,” says Ann Lindstrand from the World Health Organization.
WHO experts say significant progress has been made towards measles and should not be ignored. Although 173,000 cases of measles were reported last year, there is still a massive decline for the 850,000 cases reported in 2000.
Many parents who choose not to vaccinate their children are dependent on so-called “crew immunization” to protect However, scientists agree that the immune system for the flock must be effective, about 95 percent of the population needs to be vaccinated. Global vaccination levels have been around 85 percent for several years now.
Studies have shown that measles vaccine is extremely safe and the risk getting measles if they come into contact with a wearer are extremely low. Although the measles beat the odds and the child suffer from measles, the child will have some degree of immunity so that their body can fight the disease far more effectively than an unvaccinated child.
The cost of getting a child vaccinated with MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccines is negligible and often free.
Fairs can cause severe diarrhea, pneumonia, hearing impairment and even mental disorders in adolescents. It is estimated that 110,000 people, mostly children, died of measles last year.
The World Health Organization believes that measles fall will be higher again in next year’s report.
