Thus, after 2years of consecutive boost, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Myanmar, Philippines, Sudan, Thailand and Ukraine, are all within the midst of current outbreaks. The disease is also spreading fast among clusters of people who are resisting vaccination within countries with high overall vaccination rates, including the United States, Israel, Thailand and Tunisia. «Were worried not only because measles can be so severe, it still causes over 100,000deaths every year, but also because it is extremely contagious,» the UN agency chiefs admitted.
