In a recently published interview, Germany’s health minister Jens Spahn said that parents who cannot prove their children were vaccinated for measles, should have to pay a fine. Speaking with the German weekly Bild am Sonntag, Spahn said he wants parents to have to pay up to 2,500 euros ($2,790). He went on to propose that those children who go without the measles vaccine should be “banned from going to daycare facilities”1 so that others who are too young or medically unable to receive the vaccine, are protected.
These proposals have not been discussed by the German Cabinet.
In the first 10 weeks of the year, Germany reported 203 cases of measles while neighboring Switzerland “reported two adult deaths from measles this year: one in an unvaccinated man of about 30 and another in a man of about 70 whose immune system had been compromised by cancer.”1
According to the World Health Organization:
- Europe saw 82,596 cases of measles in 2018 and 72 measles deaths.
- Most of those infections – 53,218 – were recorded in Ukraine, where an armed conflict with separatists is hurting medical care in its eastern regions.
- France and Italy had more than 2,400 measles cases each from March 2018 to February 2019.
- Greece had more than 1,400 measles cases.
- And Britain reported over 900 during that same time period
Fear mongering has hit record highs all over the world. And the forced vaccinated of people has already begun. What used to be nothing more than a childhood illness that everyone got and then had lifetime immunity from, has become a “disease” to be terrified of.
Experts say that if more than 95% of the population is properly immunized, measles “cannot spread easily and is effectively contained”1 but because there are pockets of unvaccinated kids and adults, flare-ups of the eradicated disease occur.
However, it’s not ever been totally eradicated. The disease still exists in the world. And why isn’t anyone talking about the fact that the MMR sheds the virus and is able to infect others. Also, why don’t know know who has gotten wild measles and spread it versus who has gotten measles from the vaccine and spread it to the already vaccinated?
