Headline: Without proper vaccination, measles returns to 1996 levels of contagion
Last year, more than 800,000 cases were registered, while deaths from this ailment increased almost 50% in the last four years. The future is not rosy: more than 94 million people are unprotected as 26 countries interrupted their vaccination campaigns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On the positive side, vaccination has saved more than 25.5 million lives worldwide since 2000.
