U.S. Now Has More Than 1,000 Measles Cases in 2019

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recorded 41 new cases of measles during the last week of May, bringing the total to 1,001 and making this the worst year for measles in the U.S. since 1992.

The outbreak started with parents who refused to vaccinate their children because they feared that it might cause autism.

There is no link between the vaccines and autism, although there is a link between high fevers and autism, and the vaccine can bring on such a fever, which a child would have eventually suffered anyway due to a cold, the flu, or any number of common childhood ailments.

If the current outbreak doesn’t abate before October, the U.S. will lose its measles status, which is currently “Eradicated.”
