“Vaccinations are so important,” said DonaldTrump to White House reporters.
“They have to get their shots.” – He reiterated, in the light of a massive Measles outbreak that the United States is suffering from at the moment.
The roots of this resurgence of Measles attacks have been traced back to Orthodox Jews who might have contracted the attack while abroad.
The Mayor of New York has declared a Public Health Emergency in the Heavily Orthodox Jewish parts of Brooklyn. The residents have been urged to get themselves vaccinated in order to fight this Measles outbreak.
In total, 695 cases of Measles have been reported in 2019 till date; this after the diseases being declared as eradicated about 20 years back.
The recent outbreak brings to fore the larger Anti-vaxxer movement that has been gaining good ground in the US lately which has seen scores of parents to not go through with their child’s vaccination.
