Why measles will carry on killing children

From an article on the Beeb:

The Lancet study says that in 2006-7 most of the 12,000 cases in Europe were found in the UK and four other nations.

substantial outbreaks in otherwise measles-free South America have been traced back to Europe.

Funny, that. In the case of Polio, we can point at those superstitious Nigerians refusing vaccines 'because they're a plot to kill Muslims'. In the case of measles, we have our own Andrew Wakefield, and the scumbag journalists who promoted his irrationality.
