60 Measles Cases Documented In London


The measles has been reported in chareidi communities in Jerusalem, as well as in N. America, in Williamsburg, Boro Park, Monsey, and Lakewood. The list unfortunately continues to expand, with the illness now documented among members of the chareidi community in London.

The Jewish Chronicle reports that a London area chareidi resident who visited Eretz Yisrael for the Tishrei Yomim Tovim brought the illness back to the community upon his return. There have already been over 60 confirmed cases in the northern London chareidi areas since October, with most victims being persons who were not vaccinated.

Doctors explain that unlike other illnesses, with measles, if one is exposed and unvaccinated, the chances of contracting the illness remain over 90%.

    I can’t believe measles are back in force. We never would have not vaccinated our kids. Dancing in streets when polio vacine was invented. It’s going to get worse.
