Breitbart News reported that the CDC website explains that the federal government started recording measles outbreaks in 1912, and in the first decade of record-keeping, an average of 6,000 measles-related deaths was reported each year. "It is an "urgent public health priority" to monitor measles, mumps, and rubella and raise awareness about the importance of immunization, he said".
WHO named vaccine hesitancy as one of the 10 biggest threats to global health in 2019 in a report last January.
Public Health officials located five cases of measles in Los Angeles County.

Ongoing outbreaks have been linked to travelers who brought measles back from countries such as Israel, Ukraine and the Philippines, the CDC says.Last month, for example, one man who was unaware he had measles traveled from NY to MI, where he infected 39 people, The Washington Post reported.
In the USA, 626 cases have been confirmed this year, putting it on track to surpass the record number of measles cases in a single year since the vaccine-preventable disease was declared eliminated in 2000. In the April 11 case, the infected person had visited a local market, a nightclub and two health providers - Shasta Regional Medical Center and Shasta Community Medical Center - in Redding between April 3 and April 8 and was an Uber customer on three of the days, according to Shasta health officials. "We are definitely anticipating that there will be more and more importations".
About 1 out of every 1,000 children with measles will develop swelling of the brain, which can lead to convulsions and leave the child deaf or with an intellectual disability.
"I can tell you that that's not true", Caplan said and cited a recent study out of Denmark where more than 600,000 children were followed for a dozen years. Doctors blamed it on parents not having their children vaccinated.
Caplan compared it to safety requirements in place to protect children such as auto seats.
