Israel launched a widespread operation to inoculate the smallpox population after an epidemic in a country that claimed the life of a baby in Jerusalem.
After many years of smallpox, an epidemic occurred in the population segments that refused early inoculation. Now it has spread to many areas of the country.
In Israel, several religious sects oppose the vaccination, and the Health Ministry has increased the campaign in recent months to increase the rate of vaccination in unprotected communities.
For the first time in decades, the Ministry of Health began to inoculate adults from the age of 14 to 61, as well as children.
About 1,400 this year recorded a goddess, as opposed to just 34 in 2017. More than 30,000 Israelis were exposed in different ways to small dynasties.
Expose Israel Haiom they discovered a list of failures that allowed the disease to return in full force.
Several lawmakers have called on the state to take measures against those who refuse vaccinations, as they pose a threat to society. Proposals include banning their entry into schools and other public places.
Measles is a very contagious disease and one of the leading causes of death worldwide in children, according to the World Health Organization. It is easily prevented by the vaccine.
However, the World Health Organization reported tens of thousands of cases of damage across Europe.
In Thailand, authorities are attempting to record an epidemic of smallpox in southern provinces in the country, from which 14 deaths and more than 1,500 cases have been reported since September.
Officials blame the return of disease in Thailand to low rates of vaccination in the south caused by misconceptions among the Muslim population on the nature of the vaccine.
