The central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan has recorded 11,000 cases of measles, prompting a travel advisory from the WHO. The nation has initiated a mass vaccination campaign to combat the spread of this disease. Of these 11,000 cases, an estimated 7,000 had occurred in the very first seven weeks of 2015.
The WHO has issued a travel advisory to all people heading to this region.
I wonder if any similar advisory was issued about traveling to Disneyland in the wake of the outbreak of measles there!
