According to CNN, Measles cases have reached a record high in Europe.
So far 2018 has had more cases of Measles recording within the first 6 months than any other 12-month period this decade, according to the World Health Organization.
The rise in the Measles cases can be attributed to an inter-country variation in rates of immunization.
In places such as Italy, where there is an anti-vaccine sentiment, measles is one of the first diseases to manifest, given its contagiousness.
In light of the rise in Measles cases, the World Health Organization has moved to work closer with European countries to prevent the spread of the disease
