Measles

Sandra Alexander from Upper Hutt: Wider Community Connectivity

I have a burning question!
Am truly saddened by the many reports relating to deaths from Measles.
Anyone able to help me get my head around this?
: Has the Measles Virus (or whatever) morphed over the decades?
If so ... why or how?
: Is it only unimmunised children effected?
Will stop there in the hope someone can point me to a reliable source of information in an attempt to better understand what is going on.
