The number of measles cases have risen across the globe and in Turkey, cases have nearly quadrupled since 2018.
According to a Bianet report (computer translated), confirmed cases of measles have increased from 716 in 2018 to 2719 in the first 11 months of 2019. Of the 2700 cases, 1800 are in children under five years of age.
This is the most cases in the country since 2013.
Parents of some 30,000 children have refused vaccinations in Turkey, the report notes. Refusing opposing vaccination in Turkey are believing vaccinations are harmful, and not believing they are necessary.
