New national case counts have been released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and we see it continue to rise by the dozens.
The biggest outbreaks in the United States, in New York City and Rockland County, NY also reported updated numbers on Monday.
Weirdly, while some 750 measles cases have been reported in these two outbreaks, anti-vaccine rallies were held in the heart of one of the outbreaks–Rockland County–with speakers like Andrew Wakefield and Dr. Lawrence Palevsky.
And up the road in Albany, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr was at a rally railing against the proposed strengthening of New York’s vaccination law.
