Measles Cases Top 100

Washington measles outbreak Why we should fear this vaccine-preventable disease

In 2018, 26 states and the District of Columbia reported 372 confirmed cases of measles, a preliminary tally but the second-highest since the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S.in 2000.

Dr. Mario Panaligan, president of the Philippine Society for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, said children and adults can easily contract the disease if they are not immune to it.

An order from the Health Department remains in effect for more than 30 schools in New Square, Spring Valley and Monsey to keep home students who are unvaccinated or undervaccinated from the measles - until 21 days after the last case in the county.

DOH Region 6 has sought the help of the regional offices of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Department of Education (DepEd) for the door-to-door and school-based measles immunization. The document lists action points to "interrupt [the] transmission of [the] measles virus" in the area. With both doses three out of 100 get measles, but according to the CDC it is much milder and less likely to spread. "To augment the plans of DOH, medical societies, lahat po kami ay nagtutulong-tulong para ma-administer ang bakuna sa (we are all working together to administer the vaccines to the) number of children who need to be vaccinated to be able to control the outbreak", she said. Here's one example of the actions being taken by the DOH to push back, as detailed in a February 8 advisory from DOH-Center for Health Development in Western Visayas.

This data reflects a almost 8-fold increase in measles cases in the Philippines.

Reaching all children with two doses of measles vaccine, either alone, or in a measles-rubella (MR), measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), or measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) combination, should be the standard for all national immunization programmes, according to WHO.

Measles is transmitted via droplets from the nose, mouth or throat of infected persons.

Several days later, a rash develops, starting on the face and upper neck and gradually spreading downwards.

It can cause complications including pneumonia, inflammation of the brain, seizures, deafness, brain damage and death. In 2018, Ukraine was responsible for about 64 percent of all measles cases reported in the World Health Organization's European region, and the number of cases more than tripled in the region between 2017 and 2018.

Mr. Duque also said that the vaccination activities are targeted to be completed by next month, and "cases will start to decrease by that time as the number of susceptibles will have already been vaccinated come March". "Loss of public confidence and trust in vaccines in the immunization program brought about by the Dengvaxia controversy has been documented as one of many factors that contributed to vaccine hesitancy in the country".

An estimated seven million people were affected by measles in 2016. The overwhelming majority (more than 95 percent) of measles deaths occur in countries with low per capita incomes and weak health infrastructures, it said. Meanwhile, a study published by the American Journal of Public Health yesterday claims that the Russians are behind the anti-vaxxer movement.
