Samoa: Measles outbreak kills at least 63 people, mostly young children

A massive and deadly measles outbreak in Samoa has forced the government of the South Pacific nation to shut down all public services. The disease has infected more than 4,300 people on the islands.

At least 63 people have died. Most of them were 4 years old or younger.

“It’s very hard to lose a child,” said one mother, crying. Her 1-year-old daughter died after getting the disease. “We have a lot of dreams that we need to fulfill for our little ones, but once they lost, we don’t know what to do.”

The Samoan government declared a national emergency last month and mandated that all 200,000 people living on the islands get vaccinated. It also closed all schools and banned children from public gatherings, CBS affiliate KGMB correspondent Allyson Blair reports. read more

12 Comments on Samoa: Measles outbreak kills at least 63 people, mostly young children

  1. “The first vaccine was for smallpox in 1797. Everyone who took that vaccine is now dead!”

    – Anti-Vaxxer Fucktard (Aren’t they all?)

  2. 63 dead out of 4300 cases. That sounds like a very high death rate. Something is rotten in Denmark allright.

    Either this is fake news, or general health is horrible and medical care in Samoa is one step above voodoo dolls.

    Take your pick…

  3. The problem with anti-vaxxers is that either their parents or grandparents neither told them about the grandparents generation and what they witnessed before measles vaccine or they were told and don’t believe them because they know they cause autism.

  4. Jenny McCarthy should be Jailed for the amount of lives she has helped destroy with her Ho Wood Bullshit. Her dis information has directly influenced the stupid into endangering innocent children.

  5. Most “anti-vaxxer” are about honesty and a program that makes sense. It is one thing to get vaccines for nasties like measles but another for HVD. Especially if it is mandated. My biggest problem is the mandating items like HVD, even for boys, when the studies show huge problems.

  6. Yes. Jenny is an idiot. She oversold just like the climate catastrophe fools. We have issues, but it is not catastrophic unless we pollute ourselves to death. Carbon is not pollution

  7. All the anti-vaxxers I know refuse to give their children any vaccines. I get not giving them all of them, but I think it’s insane to not get your kids vaccinated against measles, polio and tetanus.

    I hate shots, but my butt gets a tetanus vaccination anytime it’s been more than 5 years and I cut myself. I’m old and don’t care to die, but don’t want to die from tetanus.
    Even with animals, people are getting downright stupid. Livestock diseases that have been eradicated in this country, we are now seeing animals get because idiots won’t vaccinate their livestock. Hell some have gotten so insane they won’t even deworm their livestock and would rather watch an animal than give it antibiotics.
    Even dogs, people are getting on this kick refusing to give them rabies vaccines.

  8. ORWW- love you but where the &&@t#* do you live, Oregon? That is the wrong crowd to “know” if all of them are that dumb. Run away as fast as your old legs will take you

  9. Ignorance is due to the lack of knowledge which is what the globalists don’t want the population to have. This is true about vaccines. Being vaccinated with live virus actually makes the recipient contagious to others. The more persons who are vaccinated with the measles virus, the more others will get measles. An epidemic causes pure glee for globalist controllers. Why has Samoa been chosen to be an experimental setting to track effectiveness of a measles epidemic? This is just too man-caused to be a natural happening. Are (((they)) trying for a new global Spanish Flu? A prophetic Revelations occurrence?

    Vaccines Are Causing Measles. Child Who Caught Measles From Vaccine Was Shedding Live Vaccine Measles Virus In Throat and Urine

    “When health officials in the press criticise parents who do not vaccinate, and some on blogs attack you personally for raising justified concerns about vaccines, you can tell them the evidence is clear, and you can read it here, the vaccinated are more likely to kill a child because they are vaccinated. ”

    Measles outbreak likely caused by vaccinated children, science shows

    “The fact that vaccinated individuals can and do carry around contagious measles for many weeks while displaying no symptoms of the disease suggests that this latest outbreak might just be another example of a vaccine-strain outbreak. While a handful of the roughly 100 measles cases identified so far have tested out as wild genotype B3 measles, according to the latest reports, the original source of the outbreak has yet to be identified.

    “Numerous scientific studies indicate that children who receive a live virus vaccination can shed the disease and infect others for weeks or even months afterwards,” said Leslie Manookian, a documentary filmmaker and activist. “Thus, parents who vaccinate their children can indeed put others at risk.””
