Currently, there is an increase in the number of measles infections in the country, Turan Ibrahimova, chief consultant of the TABIB Department of Infection Prevention and Control, said.
According to her, the reason for the increase in cases of infection is that children are not vaccinated during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ednews informs.
The TABIB official said that the most effective way to protect against viral diseases is vaccination: "An example of this is the coronavirus pandemic. Vaccinated people may contract the virus, but it may be mild. There are also cases in which the measles vaccine is contraindicated."
