Doctors have warned that a measles epidemic is approaching due to falling vaccination rates and could lead to many deaths.
Declining vaccination rates have led to a resurgence of measles, a disease once rare that officials fear could have dire consequences.
Accordingly, people who show symptoms of the disease such as fever and cough must be isolated immediately, and the staff must wear personal protective equipment.
For measles, which is probably considered the most contagious disease in existence World The Health Organization also recently warned of a “large-scale epidemic storm.”
TWO DOSE VACCINE IS REQUIRED
The virus spreads when an infected person coughs, breathes or sneezes and can remain in the air for up to two hours. To stop the disease, the vaccination rate in society must reach up to 95 percent.
However, according to the latest data, it is stated that the situation is critical due to falling vaccination rates and the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic.
Professor Helen Bedford, from University College London, said: “People are still dying from measles, but without vaccination then we will see huge numbers of deaths. “This is not just a mild childhood disease.” she said.
Experts urge everyone, including adults, who has not received two doses of the MMR vaccine (measles, rubella, mumps) to get vaccinated.
