    Israeli flight attendant dies from measles

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-49334572

    An Israeli air flight attendant who fell ill with measles on an El Al flight from New York to Israel has died, Israeli media say.

    The 43-year-old woman became unwell on the flight in April. It is unclear where she contracted the disease.

    It is the third death from measles in Israel since November, after none there for 15 years, reports say.

    Measles is one of the world's most infectious illnesses but until recently cases had been declining.

    The stewardess, who has not been named, suffered brain damage due to complications from the virus and had been in an induced coma, according to media reports.

    The airline issued a statement, saying it was "bowing its head over the death of a member of a member of El Al's air crew", the Jewish Press reported.

    The latest fatality comes after an 18-month-old toddler and an 82-year-old woman died from the disease in Jerusalem at the end of last year.

    In recent decades, successful vaccination programmes have ensured measles has become rare in many places.

    But there has been a rise in the number of cases of measles around the world in the past few years.

    In the US, there has been a resurgence after disease was declared eliminated there in 2000, while in Europe the number of cases have tripled since 2017.

    I know that you care about people, Zippy.

    But you should take care of yourself as well.

    Don't take chances, Zippy.

    Vaccinations are not in short supply so be sure to take two, three, four....ten vaccinations just to be safe.

    May she RIP.

    Sales of the company’s measles-mumps-rubella and chickenpox vaccines rose 27 percent to $496 million, helped by government tenders in Latin America and higher European and U.S. demand.

    The CDC has its own lengthy history of corruption and deceit and has routinely turned a blind eye to conflicts of interest while it works to “protect the private good.” Although the agency owns 56 patents applicable to vaccines, it has no problem shredding vaccine safety data it doesn’t like, while continuing to serve as the nation’s powerful (and ostensibly “independent”) arbiter of vaccine policy. Julie Gerberding, the doctor who led the CDC from 2002 to 2009 (the time period when the Food and Drug Administration approved Gardasil without proper safety testing), left CDC to become president of Merck Vaccines and subsequently became Merck’s executive vice president for global strategic communications. Gerberding has benefited handsomely from her shares of Merck stock.

    She was also vaccinated for the measles:

    It has been reported that Amitai had been given one dose of measles vaccine as a child during the 1980s.5 7 8 9 10 11

    The one measles vaccination recommendation was based on the mistaken belief that one dose of live attenuated measles vaccine would reliably block infection with the wild measles virus and provide “life-long protection” against the disease. That turned out not to be true.12 In 1989 after measles outbreaks in the U.S. and around the world, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) added a second dose of measles vaccine to the childhood vaccine schedule using the combination MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine, which had been licensed for use in the United States since 1971.13

    According to The Times of Israel, “Blood tests revealed that [Amitai] had been vaccinated with only one shot against measles instead of the two inoculations recommended for her age group. Consequently, El Al instructed all flight attendants at the time to get measles shots.”11

    It is unclear if Amitai was given a second or perhaps even a third dose of the measles vaccine after she was diagnosed with measles, notably when she was admitted to the hospital. While meningoencephalitis is a complication associated with the measles virus, it has also been linked to the MMR vaccine, which is a live attenuated (weakened) virus vaccine.14 15 16 17 18

    In April, Israel’s Health Ministry ordered all El Al crew members to receive measles vaccinations. A Health Ministry directive stated, “Due to the continued spread of measles and the exposure of air crews, we recommend that all your workers be vaccinated. Make sure that your workers receive two inoculations and place a special emphasis on the air crews that come into contact with travelers.”19

    El Al set up a clinic at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv to administer the vaccinations.

    A vaccinated nurse at Seattle Children’s Hospital was recently diagnosed with measles after having been exposed to a child who tested positive for measles infection. The child had been in the hospital’s emergency room on June 22, June 25 and June 26, 2019 but only showed symptoms of measles during the third visit. Hospital officials said the child immediately had been put in isolation.
    The nurse, who is in her 20s and works in the inpatient units, had received two MMR vaccinations and had worn “appropriate personal protective equipment” while caring for the pediatric patient but came down with the disease anyway. An article in The Seattle Times noted that she was “potentially contagious while working from July 8 through July 11.”
    According to the website Nurse.org, “Patients who are diagnosed with measles are required to be isolated in an airborne infection isolation room (AIIR) for four days. Staff who care for the patient should wear N95 masks.” The masks are more technically known as N95 particulate filtering facepiece respirators. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), the N95s are the most commonly used particulate filtering facepiece respirators in the U.S.
