Anti-vaccine Family Gets to Spend Vacation in Quarantine

And (maybe) they will be credited with starting an epidemic. French boy suspected of reintroducing measles to Costa Rica.

Costa Rica had been measles-free for 5 years.

An unvaccinated French child who went on holiday with his parents to Costa Rica is suspected of reintroducing measles to the Central American country.

The 5-year-old boy and his parents entered the country on February 18, Costa Rica’s Health Ministry said.

Authorities have quarantined the boy in a hospital and are searching for people he may have come into contact with since his arrival.

I’m sure they are happy they bought into the “vaccines are scary” narrative.

Measles vaccine prevented an estimated 21.1 million deaths worldwide from 2000 to 2017, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

It isn’t just France of course, all of Europe has seen a huge increase in the number of measles cases in 2018.
