via Measles cases more than triple in Europe – AOL News

Measles cases more than tripled in Europe last year, with outbreaks and epidemics fueled by low vaccination rates, the World Health Organization says.

More than 21,000 people caught the virus in 2017, and 35 people died of it, WHO said. The numbers stunned officials after a record low of 5,200 cases in 2016.

Advisers met Tuesday to talk about how to increase vaccination rates in Europe.
