This is the collection time for today's major issues.
I'm with the international department, Hong Suk-woo.
What is today?
Yes, I will introduce the keywords first.
& # 39; Measles counterattack & # 39 ;.
Now the United States is a measles emergency.
Measles is called a "retrograde disease."
This is because it is possible to avoid vaccination.
In the developed world, the United States, the measles extinction sentence was made in the millennium before 19 years ago.
But in the United States, measles is spreading again this year.
It's a place called the Clan of New York State.
You can see a sign in front of the public health center that you can get a measles vaccine for free.
There is also a notice throughout the country that minors who have not been immunized are prohibited from entering public places.
Rockland County has declared an emergency with measles.
At a university in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, students were arrested in front of a public health center to get a vaccine.
As such, not only the eastern United States but also western California, Washington, southern Florida, Georgia and Texas have in fact increased measles epidemics in the United States.
According to the CDC, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 555 measles cases in 20 states by the 11th of this year, the Wall Street Journal reported.
CNN reported that "this measles epidemic is the second largest in 25 years," which means the largest after 2000 years of measles death sentence.
Looking at the outside world, I think especially in the United States, especially in New York, is serious.
What caused the spread of measles that was thought to have disappeared?
Yes, I solved the situation in New York.
According to New York City, 329 people were confirmed by measles in Brooklyn and Queens from October last year until the 15th of this year.
I live in many Koreans.
New York City finally declared a measles emergency on September 9.
Listen to the observations of New York Mayor.
[빌 드 블라시오/뉴욕시장 : “공공보건 비상사태를 즉각 선포합니다. 관련 지역에 거주하는 이들에 대해 백신접종을 명령합니다.”]
This is the Brooklyn area where the mandatory vaccination order was issued.
It is precisely the Jewish fundamentalist area of Williamsburg, near Manhattan.
Those who are called ultra-Orthodox Judaism often are not vaccinated because of their religious beliefs.
[아론 브레이버/윌리엄스버그 지역 주민 : “그렇지만 저는 백신 접종도 아주 좋은 방법은 아니라고 생각합니다. 무엇을 하던 각자의 선택이죠.”]
Local media analyzed the spread of measles in major areas of New York.
A local citizen who has been ordered to receive a compulsory vaccination can be fined up to $ 1,000, or $ 1,100 for our money.
The reason for the spread of measles is because I did not get the vaccine.
Do not you think there is a reluctant reason for measles vaccination as well as religious reasons to spread to parents with young children?
Yes, the World Health Organization (WHO) has pointed to the growing number of people who avoid vaccination related to the rapid rise in measles worldwide.
In the late 1990s, parents' concerns increased due to misinformation that MMR vaccines that prevent measles and mumps cause autism.
An increase in the number of parents who refused vaccination vaccines to their children due to adverse reactions led to an analysis of the contribution of these vaccines to the spread of measles.
Doctors and health officials say the side effects of the vaccine are unfounded.
I can prevent measles by more than 93% with just one measles vaccination, I am promoting vaccine safety and recommending vaccination.
[낸시 메소니에/미국 질병통제예방센터 : “안타까운 것은 홍역이 안전하고 효과적인 백신으로 예방할 수 있는 질병이라는 겁니다. 저는 정말로 부모들이 홍역 백신을 사용하여 아이들을 보호할 것을 촉구합니다.”]
Measles is spreading in other parts of the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on 15 March that the number of measles outbreaks worldwide in the first quarter of this year was 112,163, tripling the same period last year.
Real outbreaks can be even worse.
The WHO reported a new outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Myanmar.
Especially, patients in Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines who visit our country frequently suffer from measles.
Minors who have not been vaccinated against measles should be cautious when visiting those countries.
The World Health Organization says that the 95% vaccination rate should be maintained to prevent measles outbreaks, but the measles vaccination rate is at 85% globally.
It was the choice of today so far.
