There are more cases of measles in Minnesota now than in all of the US last year, thanks to anti-vaxxers
Minnesota is grappling with 73 cases of measles right now — more cases than the entire country had last year. The outbreak is thanks to people who don’t vaccinate their children, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. These people wrongly believe a debunked theory that vaccination causes autism. The Minnesota outbreak has exposed more than 8,000 people to the virus, mostly in schools and hospitals.
