Do not be indifferent, share the news with your friends:
Measles cases in Europe have reached record high levels, the World Health Organization said.
This is a direct consequence of the increase in propaganda against vaccines.
 
Conspiracy theories and all such nonsense have led to a reduction in vaccinations.
More than 41,000 people were infected for the first six months of 2018, with 37 dead.
 
Last year, 23,927 people were infected, 5,273 in 2016.
Most cases of infection are in Ukraine - 23,000, and most deaths - 14 in Serbia.
As a cause of contagion spread, experts point to a drop in vaccine numbers and urged countries in Europe to take action.
 
The virus can not harm the societies that are completely immune, says the World Health Organization.
95% of the population in one country must have been vaccinated to prevent transmission of the infection. However, it may recur if the percentage of vaccinates drops.
In 2017, former Health Minister Ilko Semerdjiev said there was some risk of a measles epidemic in Bulgaria, explaining that 92% of Bulgarians were vaccinated against measles.
The measles virus has come to us from Romania
Smallpox is highly contagious and transmitted by air-droplet route.
Its symptoms are:
-hrema, sneezing
high temperature, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle pain
-conjunctivitis
- strong spots in the mouth
- red, swollen spots that can cover the entire body in pimples, starting from the hairline two to four days after the first symptoms. They then spread down the head, neck, and the rest of the body.
The infection lasts between 7 and 10 days, with most patients recovering completely.
But in others it can lead to some serious complications, including:
encephalitis
-mengigit
fetal convulsions
-pneumonia
-hepatic infection (hepatitis).
After receiving one dose, 85% of children aged nine months and 95% of children over the age of 12 months acquire immunity. Almost all who do not develop immunity after a single dose acquire immunity after a second dose.
They call for urgent immunization after the epidemic of measles in the Balkans.
The effectiveness of the vaccine lasts for many years. It is not yet clear whether it becomes less effective over time.
