In Poland, the number of measles infected has multiplied
In Poland, measles infections are on the increase, and the health minister, Lukasz Szumowski, invited them to leave and to hesitate their children. AP reported today. In the Mazovia Voivodeship, where is the metropolis of Warsaw, there are 17 children recently infected by measles.
According to the minister, measles infected only to children who did not let their parents vaccinate. "This should be a precaution so we can be alert, be smart, be smart, we will be vaccinated," said Szumowski, who was trying to counteract fears that vaccines could be dangerous for children.
He also said that a child under 13 months is still sick with the vaccine. The only way to protect these infants from the infection is to provide sufficient population coverage, which should be at least 95 percent.

Infection with measles is the most dangerous in children younger than six years old, which can cause measles problems.
The World Health Organization (WHO) warned in late October that some countries in Europe, including Poland and the Czech Republic, have lost confidence in the safety of vaccination, which has led to a greater incidence of some infectious diseases, including measles.
Measles is a highly infectious viral disease. In the initial phase, fever, nose, conjunctivitis and cough appear in the patient. Then there is an eruption that is very red and diminutive. The rash begins at the head, gradually extending to the face, neck, abdomen and limbs.
