WHO: More than 140 000 die from measles as cases surge worldwide (2)

7 December, 2019

It is indeed a tragedy that children die of measles in 2019!

Facebook is complicit in this tragedy - by accepting posts from the antivaccine groups. These could easily be blocked. Can we collectively tackle Facebook??

I would love to hear others thoughts.

Best wishes
