Measles, measles and more measles. On today’s show, I look at the measles situation here in the states and in Israel and Asia. I also look at a paper that demonstrates the importance of herd immunity.

I play part of an older interview with an infection preventionist on measles.

I look at some local hepatitis A news, a important Washington Post story on Ebola and the Australian man who died 8 years after contracting rat lungworm.
