Brooklyn yeshivas continue to defy de Blasio’s public measles vaccination order 44 new cases diagnosed since mayor’s emergency order to immunize

The program reportedly has repeatedly refused to turn over medical and attendance records at the request of city officials, according to a report by the New York Post. Only one in 10 cases of measles are reported globally.

The seven cases were associated with three clusters, two of which originated overseas, it said. Per ABC News, the plaintiffs in the suit to stop that from happening are alleging that "there is insufficient evidence of a measles epidemic or risky outbreak" to justify the order (despite at least 285 reported cases in the city this year) and called it "arbitrary and capricious".

In the United States, where there is a vocal fringe of parents who oppose measles vaccines, the number of confirmed cases of measles jumped by almost 20 percent during early April, World Health Organization said. For vaccinations to prevent outbreaks, coverage needs to be at least 95 percent. PEACH's handbook dissuaded many by stating vaccines contain non-kosher ingredients such as monkey, rat and pig DNA, said the New York Times. "It is extremely frustrating", said John Wiesman, an epidemiologist.

In the lawsuit, the mothers claim that the outbreak does not constitute a unsafe epidemic (though the virus can cause severe complications and even death) and that the city's orders are "arbitrary and capricious".

The lawsuit claims the orders are arbitrary, capricious and unconstitutional because "there is insufficient evidence of a measles epidemic or unsafe outbreak to justify the respondents' extraordinary measures".

Now, there have been 555 cases of the once-eradicated disease in 2019, and le latest increase is the largest surge in cases seen in the ongoing outbreak yet. The outbreaks, which are centered in ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities, have been associated with travelers returning from Israel, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "And while we have thankfully not seen a death here in Rockland, we have seen multiple hospitalizations, including an infant and even a premature birth caused by measles". Officials estimate it took $800,000 to control that case.

Both YouTube and Facebook have made a decision to begin quieting the voices of the anti-vaccination movement.

"If you think you or someone in your family may have measles, stay at home and phone your doctor to alert them of your symptoms and allow them to make arrangements to assess you safely and without infecting other people, or call Healthline on 0800 611 116 for advice", says Dr de Wet.

The pair wrote that it was "understandable, in such a climate, how loving parents can feel lost" but that "ultimately, there is no "debate" to be had about the profound benefits of vaccines". While some hesitation is understandable, lives are being put at risk and it is costing you cold, hard cash. Is it something to be concerned about?
