Could relatives of measles virus jump from animals to us?
This is very very scary to hear. But yet most of us have gotten the vaccine for measles another virus similar to it could do serious damage. There has been an increase in measle infections recently, which has brought on a scare as there has been multiple outbreaks in the UK, Africa, and Asia. This is scary as viruses move fast, and in no time at all we could have an epidemic on our hands. In the democratic republic of Congo, around over 5000 deaths have occurred regarding the outbreak. Children were mainly affected by the outbreak. The reason for this outbreak is said to be that there has been a decline in the amount of vaccinations being taken by the population, and in order for the vaccinations to work to prevent an outbreak, 90% of the population must get vaccinations. I believe that vaccinations play a huge role the health of humans, and scientists have worked so hard that we have vaccinations available to us to prevent us from getting sick, and yet some people do not even bother taking it, I think it is totally stupid. As shown here because people were not getting their vaccinations, there was in fact an outbreak which could have been prevented just by taking a simple vaccination. Does anyone agree? Any other thoughts regarding this outbreak?
