The number of dots on this page is approximately the same as the number of children who die each year from measles*. Anti-vaccination liars would tell us that measles is harmless and the vaccine is very dangerous. Tell that to the parents of the children who die every day at the rate of eighteen per hour.
Things have been much worse, and one of the first pieces of good news in 2007 was the announcement by the WHO that global measles deaths had been reduced by 60% in little more than five years. The number is still 139,300 too high (2010 estimate).
