            Romania measles epidemic: baby dies, death toll reaches 46

            april 6, 2018

            BUCHAREST, Romania — Romanian health authorities say a nine-month old baby has died of measles, the 46th fatality from an epidemic that has struck the country over the past year.


            The National Center for the Supervision and Control of Transmissible Diseases said Friday that the infant, from the Black Sea port of Constanta, had not been vaccinated.

            It said 204 new cases of measles were reported this week in Romania, taking the confirmed total to nearly 12,000 since the disease’s outbreak last year.

            The virus is spread in the air through coughing or sneezing.

            The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said in February that the number of measles cases across the continent tripled last year, with Romania and Italy the worst affected.

              Neamt: DSP confirms the diagnosis of measles in the deceased baby

              The leadership of the Public Health Directorate (DSP) Neamţ on Thursday confirmed the diagnosis of measles in the 10-month-old baby from T?rgu Neamţ, who died on April 8th at the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Iaşi.

              In a press release, AGERPRES reports that the epidemiological inquiry confirmed that this child was not vaccinated, because in February, when it was cataloged for ROR vaccination (rubella-mumps-rubella), the parents did not respond to the doctor's request by family.

              The baby was admitted to the T?rgu Neamţ hospital on April 5 under observation of acute measles and pneumopathy and after two days, due to the fact that his condition worsened, he was transferred to Iaşi. On the morning of April 8 he died.

              The leadership of DSP Neamt is drawing a new alarm signal regarding the risk to children exposed to ROR. According to the vaccination scheme, children aged 9 to 11 months will receive a dose of ROR vaccine, and at the age of 12 months they will be vaccinated with another dose.

              Older children in the 1-4 year old group with 0 doses of ROR vaccine in the past will receive a dose of ROR vaccine. Children aged 5-9 years old with zero doses of ROR vaccine in the past will receive 2 doses of ROR vaccine, with a minimum of 28 days between them, and those with a previous vaccine dose, will receive the second dose.

              According to DSP Neamţ, 13,391 ROR doses were administered in Neamţ County last year, and only one slight adverse reaction was recorded, ie a hiccupian eruptive that gave up within 24 hours.

              Last year there were two deaths due to measles in Neamt County, and two more during this year. AGERPRES / (AS - author: Gabriel Apetrii, editor: Karina Olteanu, online editor: Ada V?lceanu)

                    Dr. Alexandru Rafila: Unfortunately we have 50th death due to measles


                    27 Apr 2018 - 14:35

                    Dr. Alexandru Rafila, the chairman of the Romanian Society of Microbiology, announced on Friday that the 50th death due to measles, mentioning that it is a four-year-old child.

                    "Unfortunately, today, we record the 50th death due to measles. (...) The 50th death due to measles is a child of four years of age, from his background that he was vaccinated against measles, but was a child with many comorbidities, that is, other conditions affecting the quality of the immune response, "Rafila told a debate on vaccination.

                    He noted that the results of the initial tests performed on the baby were negative for measles, but after their repetition, this diagnosis was established.

                    "Moreover, the first tests done on this baby were negative in the case of measles, and afterwards the diagnosis of measles was established, at least that I understood from the Center for Communicable Disease Surveillance and Control. by a person with co-morbidities, perhaps with an imperfection of the immune response that was manifested both in the case of the disease and perhaps also in the case of vaccination.Although he was vaccinated he did not get the title of protective antibodies, protect him from illness, "explained Rafila.

                    He said that, unfortunately, there are such situations. "There is no perfect vaccine to protect one hundred percent, but we must bear in mind that if we had a proper vaccination coverage in Romania, this child would not have gotten sick and I think this is something to be mentioned" , added the president of the Romanian Society of Microbiology.
