WHO issues Measles Warning to Europe

[ BBC Health ] 2 Dec

WHO cautions European countries against spread of measles and has asked them to act now to tackle measles outbreaks.
The WHO report says there were over 26,000 measles cases in 36 European countries from January to October 2011. Already, Western European countries reported 83% of those cases, with 14,000 in France alone.
In England and Wales, there were just under 1,000 confirmed measles cases in that period - compared with just 374 in the whole of 2010.
