    Romania: measles outbreak sees 200 new cases per week
    By alison mutler, associated press

    CHITILA, Romania ? Jun 8, 2018, 5:30 AM ET

    An outbreak of measles has killed dozens of infants and children in Romania, with 200 new cases reported each week.

    Doctors say the surge in the disease is fueled by low rates of vaccination...

    ...Alexandru Rafila, chief of a laboratory at the Matei Bals National Institute for Infectious Diseases in Bucharest, told The Associated Press this week the highly contagious disease spread quicker because millions of Romanians work abroad, exposing themselves to different strains of the virus and then returning home.

    He said the disease first appeared in a community of Roma in northwestern Romania in 2016. He said the strain of disease was alien to Romania but often found in Italy.

    Some 13,700 people in Romania have contracted measles since the epidemic began in 2016, and 55 have died, of whom only one had been immunized, according to the National Center for the Supervision and Control of Transmissible Diseases...

    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.

    Among the dead, 39 were children under the age of three who had not been vaccinated, making Romania one of the worst affected countries in the ongoing measles outbreak in Europe.

    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)

    Measles epidemic. The struggle of Romania with the biggest epidemic in the last decades

    Ema Apostu / 06 Aug 2017 / 17:13


    The measles epidemic, which "sweep" Romania, is widely debated in the international press. The irresponsibility of the parents, the lack of reaction of the authorities have led our country into a very difficult situation. We are helpless in the face of measles, statistics show.

    The total number of cases confirmed with measles in Romania reported until Friday, August 4, is 8,455, with 108 cases more than last week, according to the National Center for Communicable Disease Surveillance and Control within the National Institute of Public Health (INSP).

    32 people lost their fight with measles.

    The death of any patient is hard to bear, each death being a tragedy, said pediatrician Anca Drăgănescu for the Financial Times.

    It was a traumatic consequence, however, to see how children die from measles, without doing anything in this regard.

    An epidemic of measles, a highly contagious virus that could be prevented, "sweep" Romania.

    "I knew it was coming"

    "We expected it to happen because the vaccination rate has fallen so much in recent years." It was no surprise, I knew it was coming, "says the doctor.

    The government, desperate to halt the outbreak of the epidemic, is expected to present as soon as possible a bill that will not only stop the epidemic, but also avoid a possible future situation.

    In Italy, where politician Beppe Grillo has condemned immunization programs, saying that "vaccines kill", doctors recorded this year over 3,000 cases of measles, a six-fold increase over the same period in 2016.

    Germany also recorded more than 700 cases in the first half of the year, five times more.

    Romania far exceeds these figures. Almost 85% of the deaths caused by the virus in the EU this year occurred in our country.

    What is the cause? The average vaccination rate has fallen from 95% to 86% since 2007, says Professor Alexandru Rafila, head of microbiology at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases in Romania.

    In remote areas of the West, often heavily populated by Roma, who are reluctant to seek medical attention, immunization rates are much lower.

    How does Romania fight the crisis?

    In response to the crisis, Bucharest tried to secure adequate supplies of vaccines and stopped exports. It has also launched a national vaccination campaign.

    The new bill should also address the issue of parental responsibility.

    "There should be a very clear responsibility for people who do not vaccinate their children - they have to assume their consequences," says Professor Rafila, quoted by FT.

    Parents disagree with vaccination

    "He has no right to tell me how to take care of my baby," says Ani Critu, a 38-year-old actress who thinks her four-year-old son's rash and intestinal health issues have been caused by a Adverse reaction to vaccination.

    "Of course, I trust science and medicine, but I know what happened to me and my son - it's a victim of vaccines," he says.

    Dr Draganescu says parents need to realize the impact of their decisions on other children, especially on those weakened by pre-existing conditions.

    "When you see that a child suffers and dies, you feel you want to make all those who are responsible to pay," she says.
