Why you should get vaccinated for measles: Why not try to vaccinate?
The world has been hit by a series of pandemics that have led to an unprecedented surge in the numbers of people getting sick.
Weeks after a spate of cases in New York City, there were reports of a possible resurgence in cases across Australia and New Zealand.
And the latest, which came on Wednesday, is only the latest in a string of new cases in the United States.
Health authorities in the US and the UK are warning people to get vaccinated as more people continue to travel overseas to the United Kingdom.
“I’m not sure that there’s a single scenario where people are going to be safe from measles and the vaccine will be as effective as in the past,” Health Secretary Anthony Gidley said.
Mr Gidson said the virus was no longer a risk to Australians but had increased to levels that he thought were dangerous.
In New York, the number of confirmed cases was down to 10,948, or 1.4 per cent of the city’s total population.
The outbreak has caused huge health costs, and has also created massive uncertainty about the ability of the state to meet its healthcare obligations under a US state and federal programme known as the New York State Strategy.
But Mr Gidhan said the public was not being told the truth about the risks.
He said while the number and number of cases did not seem to have been as great as they were in the last few years, he believed it was still “very high”.
“So the truth is that we are seeing the number, we’re seeing the severity of the outbreaks that are being reported in New England, and we’re not really being told what the number is,” he said.
“That is why I think the public is not being given the full picture of the situation.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has said that the state was “very confident” that the virus would be contained.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has urged the international community to work with the Australian government to find a way to prevent the spread of the virus.
WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said the US was facing an “unprecedented pandemic” and was “currently facing unprecedented challenges in its response to the spread”.
The WHO has called on the Australian and New York state governments to work together to develop a strategy to control the spread.
Ms Chan said countries around the world needed to develop their own systems to control and control the virus and ensure the safety of people, animals and supplies.
It is estimated that more than 8 million people have been infected and more than 300,000 deaths have been linked to the virus, including a record number of coronavirus deaths in Australia in August.
