33 84 | Current Measles Reporting and "Wake-Up Call"


Notice how 'wake-up call' is hyphenated.
  • Wake-Up = 5+1+2+5+3+7 = 23
  • Call = 3+1+3+3 = 10
  • Wake-Up Call = 33
The article emphasizes how through January, the United States already has more measles cases than it does in a whole year typically.  That said, notice how last year Measles were up well over average, yet there was very little reporting on it.  If Measles continue to spread at the rate they currently are, the outbreak number will double from 2014, to approximately 1,200+ cases.

1,200 divided by 300 million equals "insignificant".
