From January to June of this year, the world reported 364,808 measles cases—more than any year since 2006, the WHO reports.
- DRC, Ukraine and Madagascar report the most cases.
- Europe’s nearly 90,000 cases already exceeds cases recorded for all of 2018 (84,462).
- The US reports its highest measles case count in a quarter century.
Most of the countries with the highest case counts have low vaccination rates, the WHO says—but even countries boasting high coverage rates are seeing more cases.
