More Than 60 Measles Cases Documented In The London Chareidi Community

9

The measles has been reported in chareidi communities in Jerusalem, as well as in N. America, in Williamsburg, Boro Park, Monsey, and Lakewood. The list unfortunately continues to expand, with the illness now documented among members of the chareidi community in London.

The Jewish Chronicle reports that a London area chareidi resident who visited Eretz Yisrael for the Tishrei Yomim Tovim brought the illness back to the community upon his return. There have already been over 60 confirmed cases in the northern London chareidi areas since October, with most victims being persons who were not vaccinated.

Doctors explain that unlike other illnesses, with measles, if one is exposed and unvaccinated, the chances of contracting the illness remain over 90%.

  1. My 2 youngest (not vaccinated) girls are among those who had the measles 2 – 3 weeks ago. Their young cousin(s) (whose mother I have a feeling also got caught into the chain of being brainwashed) came back from yerushalayim after succos with the measles.

  2. What a chillul Hashem! This is only happening in frum communities WORLDWIDE! Anti-vaxxers are causing the biggest chillul Hashem in decades! A clear ticket to gehinnom. Normals should daven for the anti-vaxxers’ neshamos- they will need all the Tefillos they can get.

  3. YWN (and other frum sites) would like to have you think this a chareidi issue. Just google Ukraine measles 2018 (that’s where it started & a frum person caught it & brought it to EY) They have over 30,000 cases!

    In 2014, due to a vaccine shortage, their vax rate was 30% – no major outbreaks. Since 2017 they had a major push & are currently over 90% vaxxed. Now this…

    But this is by no means a Chareidi or Jewish issue. There are MAJOR outbreaks throughout Europe. Why single out the few Chareidi cases in Europe? That’s trying to create a Chilul Hashem where there is none. Yes, the breakout spread to EY, & it will find its way to Jewish communities here (as well as Russian communities here – there are breakouts all across the US now)

    Take ownership of your actions and stop posting fake news! Our neighbors read this & use it to spread hate…

  4. Adult women and men and Bochrim should have been vaccinated 20 years ago, and are separate group from the current anti Vaxxers who are not vaccinating their babies! So there are 2 groups: 1. The anti vaxxer group that recently developed and are not vaccinating babies. 2. Young adults and adults who should have been vaccinated 20 YEARS AGO as infants but were not!

    This second group needs to get vaccinated, and it also warrants examining why in Frum community in decades past, so many were negligent in getting their babies vaccinated?!

  5. The adult men and women catching measles are ANOTHER group from the anti vaxxer babies. THE WUESTION is why these adults were not taken to pediatricians to be vaccinated 20+ YEARS ago- was it financial reasons? Neglect? This question needs to be addressed because there are obviously Moms who are NOT anti Vaxxers, who are NOT VACCINATING their babies. Maybe these vaccinations need to be free routinely, maybe nurses need to call moms to remind them- THIS GROUP NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED

  6. Response to Thank Hashem:
    Your cousin, An adult woman, cannot have caught measles unless when She was not Vaccinated as a BABY 20+ years ago, she wasn’t vaccinated 20 Years ago when she was a baby. There IS an anti Vaxxer problem, but She as an adult is not a current anti vaxxer’s baby!
    The adult men and women catching measles are ANOTHER group from the anti vaxxer babies. THE QUESTION is why these adults were not taken to pediatricians to be vaccinated 20+ YEARS ago- was it financial reasons? Do Mothers need More Calls From Pediatricians to REMIND THEM? This question needs to be addressed because there are obviously Moms who are NOT anti Vaxxers, who are NOT VACCINATING their babies. Maybe these vaccinations need to be free routinely, maybe nurses need to call moms to remind them- THIS GROUP NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED

    Before responding, next time read through thoroughly the sentence you are reading. Had you done so, you would have definitely seen my words written YOUNG COUSIN(S). I have no clue how you got to talking about the mother of these young cousins. Enjoy life.
