3 person who died in Israel from measles
This is the third person to die of measles in Israel. The cases were registered between November 3 and July 2018. This happens after 2019 years without measles in Israel.
In recent decades, vaccination programs have greatly reduced the number of measles cases. In the 2000 years, the US declared that the disease was eradicated from its territory.
Unfortunately, vaccination campaigns have led to the recurrence of this disease. In Europe, measles cases have grown alarmingly long since 2017. And he began to make victims, regardless of age. Babies have been dead for several months, teenagers and even people over 80 have died.
Dear passengers, do not fly if your health is not within the parameters. Do not fly with sick children with measles, rubella or other childhood illnesses. It may be a simple form to them, but adults, after a while, are exposed to complications.
The flight attendants come in contact with thousands of people and are exposed to these infections and to various other diseases. We encourage vaccination, the only remedy that keeps the disease at bay.
