Measles outbreak kills 17 unvaccinated children in Romania

A measles outbreak in Romania has killed 17 children and infected thousands more since September due to poverty and an anti-vaccination movement.

Romanian health minister Florian Bodog said that none of the children who died from the highly contagious virus had been vaccinated, adding that the last victim was a one-year-old girl from the northern city of Satu Mare.

More than 3,400 people have been infected since February 2016 compared with the year before when the country registered seven cases but no deaths, Mr Bodog said, according to the Hotnews.ro site.


...I suppose the Church is happy now? Presumably getting autism is impossible when you die of measles!?
