An 18-month-old child in Berlin who had not been vaccinated against measles has died of the virus, German health officials announced Monday. The city has seen more than 600 cases since a measles outbreak began in October.

Vaccination is not mandated in Germany, but the toddler’s death has raised public-health fears in the country.

“We take the current situation very seriously,” said a spokeswoman for the German health ministry, adding that the country will be trying to increase vaccination rates. “If that doesn’t help, then we will have to discuss other measures.”

The news comes as U.S. health officials announced Monday that the country has had 154 measles cases thus far in 2015. In 2000, the U.S. declared measles to be eliminated thanks to years of vaccination efforts. Read more.

  1. Dear yadan.
    Sorry to be so straigh forward.
    YOU ARE A MUMBLING FOOL.
    OBVIOUSLY YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO READ

    The fact is that not to vacinate is stupid,ignorant and selfish

  2. But it’s ok if I don’t get my child vaccinated, because my uncle’s dog’s grandma’s owner’s 98th cousin 12 times removed knew a guy who heard from someone who knew someone who’s kid had autism and had once gotten a vaccine, that vaccines cause autism. (Also, the Mossad, the cia, and the Rothschild family are responsible for 9-11)
