A measles outbreak concentrated in Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods in New York City is over, meaning an emergency order mandating vaccines will be lifted, health officials said Tuesday.

The city has seen 654 cases of measles – the most in 30 years – since an outbreak mostly concentrated in the Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn began in October 2018, officials said. That prompted an emergency order mandating that nearly everyone in those neighborhoods get vaccinated or face possible fines.

The officials said two incubation periods since the last reported cases have passed without any new infections. But city Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot cautioned that there’s still a threat from “one of the most contagious diseases on the face of the earth,” and urged New Yorkers to still get their children immunized before the start of the new school year.

“Staying up to date on vaccines is the best way for people to protect the health and safety of their friends, family and neighbors,” Barbot said.

  1. Hurray! This is such good news. Now we can relax and get back to living our lives without the constant fear we’ve had. We no longer have to be concerned about those evil rodfim. I wonder what crisis lurks around the corner.
    For one last time, can someone give us a final tally on the death count that resulted from the dreaded measles that plagued us for so long?

  2. You fools. This is fake news from Big pharma and the cdc. The mmr is only effective for 4 maybe 10 years. What’s worse is the disease is mutating, and infants and adults(who have been vaccinated) are contracting the disease.
