Measles Outbreak

An outbreak of measles is currently ongoing in California, Canada and Mexico with a tally of about
149 cases. Index cases were linked with a Disney World visit in California. It's noteworthy that most of the infected children were not vaccinated against measles due to anti-vaccine philosophies attributable to a false belief that the vaccine causes autism.
With the high population of unvaccinated children and parents insistent on not allowing their children get vaccinated, the scourge of the disease is bound to continue till appropriate checks are put in place.
