United States health experts warned on Wednesday The snowman has returned in recent years Especially in the country To refuse vaccination communities and for religious or personal reasons to obtain exceptions.
Since January 1, they have declared six focus Get rid of Elgorria in the states of Washington, Colorado and New York 159 damaged illness. In 2000, the disease was eliminated in the United States, which means that it did not spread to the country. However, In these cases it has risen over the last few years and, in 2019, it is particularly bad.
Tomorrow will return "unacceptable," said Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, before intervening in the US Congress on Wednesday. Logs are "tragic because they are completely preventative," added Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Kentucky.
du The measles virus is the most contagious. It may be in one place for the departure of two infected people for up to two hours.
Most American epidemic epidemics begin when the virus reaches the body of a person traveling abroad, because the disease is very active in many countries. then It is spread amongst people who do not receive the vaccine, who live near each other.
Yes, explain experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who mention decades of use per millions of children per year and have assured that their children were vaccinated.
At the end of the 1990s, A triple vaccine against autism made a study, but this study was a scam, and Fauci said the research found that there was no danger of autism against the vaccine.
However, the disinformation of the vaccine is wide. Fauci has said that the solution is not critical to criticize people. Instead, "We need to find out about how to educate them, "and spread fake news.
"There are groups that have doubts about vaccines," said Nancy Messonnier, director of CDC.
Over the last five years, 12 out of 26 epidemics have been named in groups with more than five "sickly" people, such as the Somali community in Minnesota in 2017 or the orthodox Jewish community in the Brooklyn neighborhood of New York. last year
Incorrect information about vaccines is one of the factors that explain these data, experts have said, Social networks have attacked the spread of false information about vaccination risks.
A vaccine against measles, papilla and rubella is "very safe," added Nancy Messonnier. Since the creation of the 60's, millions of doses have been successfully used.
And this success is a current problem, said Messonnier. The number of cases of measles fell by 99% since the discovery of vaccine, parents do not realize the risks.
For collective immunity, that is to protect people from mishaps and risk protection (babies, pregnant women), the vaccine rate should be between 92% and 95%, Fauci explained.
The national child rate is close to that level, but there are large differences between states, as well as between cities or schools.
It's the cleanest example of the problem Clark region, North of Portland (north-west). Twenty-five of the five national cases are present, most of which are under 10 years of age.
Fifteen years ago, in the region, 96% of the five-year-old children were inserted against mosquitoes. 2017-2018an, This figure was 84%, much lower than the recommended threshold.
In some schools, particularly private, vaccines, corpusions and rubles against this disease were between 20% and 30% in the past. More than half of the students exclude some schools.
Representatives of the Washington State have reacted to the epidemic by encouraging the exclusion of vaccination exceptions for personal or philosophical reasons. The text mentions religious reasons.
And other states have ended the exceptions. In the United States, 50 states (California, Mississippi and West Virginia) only have three exceptions for medical reasons.
