Measles

Measles - For the first time in seven years, the number of measles cases is increasing in Europe. France has reported two deaths from the disease since January along with 2,400 recorded cases. While in 33 European countries, measles has completely disappeared, it has returned to the United Kingdom, Greece, the Czech Republic and Albania, four European countries that had eradicated it. In France, vaccination against measles is now mandatory for all children. The patients are today mainly young adults, never vaccinated or who did not receive the two necessary doses. Most cases of measles are concentrated in the southern regions of New Aquitaine, and the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region.
