    2019 has seen the most measles cases in 20 years, CDC says

    Measles just hit a major milestone as it spreads across the country, infecting the most people since the year 2000, when public health officials declared the virus eliminated in the US. Thanks to the anti-vaccination movement, the virus has come roaring back.

    The case count has climbed to 695 people infected across 22 different states, driven in part by outbreaks that have lingered in New York and Washington, according to a statement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Stopping these ongoing outbreaks as soon as possible will be critical, the CDC says. “The longer these outbreaks continue, the greater the chance measles will again get a sustained foothold in the United States,” the CDC said in a statement.
    I’m not sure what to say, other than we have reached another milestone of the absurd.

    We need another super plague outbreak, like a modern day Black Death, to put the fucking fear of mother nature back into these dumb asses. It's literally the only way these people will get a clue.

    And it is nothing more than within the past 3 years we were close to report that measles were almost gone...

    I’d wager it’s more than just the anti-vaccination movement in the US that has something to do with it.

    Ironically, it's over population, an over population of stupid people at that.

    Congrats to the 11 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    People blame anti-vaccination but I think the more likely culprit is the lack of a database for keeping track of which vaccines you have had. If you move around a lot, it can be difficult to keep track of paper documents over decades and decades regarding each vaccine. Especially considering you need two administrations of the MMR vaccine.

    Internet geniuses will blame anti-vaxxers, but hopefuully people will start to realize that vaccinations are BS and stop believing big pharma funded nonsense.

    How is it big pharma nonsense? You have to be on crack to think it wasn't vaccines that almost eliminated it.

    It's difficult to eradicate something like measles, and the sickness surges across the ages. You can look it up online, every few years the numbers of infected spike, and then drop again.

    That being said, people refusing to vaccinate for non-medical reasons are idiots.

    It is within the last 3-4 years that Denmark could almost say we had no more measles, then popularity of being anti-vaxx and more skyrocketed.

    Nowadays, you have parents begging schools to ban unvaccinated children unless for medical reasons. You have parents request on parenting groups, lists of kindergartens, schools and more where anti-vaxx aren't to be found.

    Just when we welcomed out little girl to the world, we were at the lowest measle infection count that the country had ever experienced.

    it is almost like anti vaccinating is creating a problem that we predicted would happen if folks dont get vaccinated

    Unfortunately no because you can still get measles if you are vaccinated (3% chance) not to mention the elderly and people who are suffering from deadly diseases like cancer, babies too young to get the vaccine and others. If only the stupid would die then this would not be an issue but they are a threat to everyone around them.

    When I found out measles parties where I thing, I almost lost my shit. I wish the parents would rather have suicide by shotgun parties.

    Yes, the rise of the anti-vaxxer movement is obviously not the problem for people not getting vaccinated. People always moved around. While a centralized database and record keeping would likely help with the problem somewhat (just as a national firearm registry would help with that little problem *cough* *cough*) its absence is not the reason for this massive rise in unvaccinated children across the developed world.

    Ya it’s isn't the literal thousands pooping over the border each day. Diseases that were eradicated are all coming back.
