In Poland the number of measles infected is multiplied
In Poland, measles infections are increasing and Health Minister Lukasz Szumowski has called on them to give up their children and their children vaccinated. AP announced today. In the Mazovian Town Hall, where the Warsaw diocese is located, 17 children have recently been infected with measles.
According to the minister, measles infects only children who did not let their parents vaccinate. "This should be a precaution to be alert, let's be clever, let's be smart, be vaccinated," said Szumowski, who was trying to counter the fears that vaccines could be dangerous to children.
He also notes that a child under the age of 13 months is still ill with the vaccine. The only way to protect these infants from infection is to have adequate coverage of the population, which must be at least 95%.

Infection with measles is the most dangerous in children under the age of six, which can cause measles that cause life-threatening complications.
The World Health Organization (WHO) warned at the end of October that some European countries, including Poland and the Czech Republic, had lost confidence in the safety of vaccination, leading to an increased incidence of certain infectious diseases, including measles.
Measles are highly infectious viral diseases. In the initial stage, fever, runny nose, conjunctivitis and cough are present in the patient. Later there is a rash that is deep red and tiny specks. The rash starts from the head, gradually spreading to the face, neck, abdomen and extremities.
