"The Worst Measles Outbreak In The European Union."

Post by bindeweede » Sat Nov 24, 2018 8:43 pm

A 2016 survey by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine showed that many of the countries with the highest skepticism of vaccines were in Europe. In France, for instance, 41 percent of those surveyed said vaccines are not safe — more than three times the global average of 12 percent.

Both Alexiu and Pistol, the chief epidemiologist, believe that parents who are against vaccination are a big reason why this outbreak grew in Romania.

IIRC Australia is banning unvaccinated children from attending school, on the perfectly reasonable grounds that they could be posing a threat to other children.
