The incidence of measles among children in Italy this year have risen sharply: during the first months of 2017 were registered in three times more cases of measles than in all of 2016 .

In recent years, the number vaccinated against measles children two years of age fell below 80%, whereas previously exceeded 90%. According to who recommendations, the country’s measles vaccination should be held not less than 95% of children under the age of two.

The country’s Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said that the number of children receiving vaccinations dropped due to the spread of “anti-scientific views” – in recent years, in Italy, popular with young parents are of the theory about the dangers of vaccination and the risks associated with it.
