U.N. Dispatch Discusses New WHO Measles Data

U.N. Dispatch: There Has Been a 300% Increase in Measles Cases This Year
Mark Leon Goldberg, executive editor of U.N. Dispatch, discusses recent World Health Organization (WHO) data showing a significant increase in measles globally. Goldberg also quotes from a piece by UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore and WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and writes, “It is not usual that the heads of UNICEF and the World Health Organization would team up to jointly warn the world about a fast spreading disease that stalks children. But a sudden surge in measles cases in the first three months of 2019 is also unprecedented” (4/19).
