BREAKING: 30,000+ Infected with Measles in Massive Outbreak

A measles outbreak in Ukraine has infected more than 30,000 people and killed at least 11 this year, according to the Ukranian government and France 24.

A nine-year-old died on Saturday due to the illness, and another 30,500 people, including over 17,000 children, have gotten it this year.

Officials blame the outbreak on shortages of vaccines in recent years, as well as people choosing not to get their children vaccinated.

In Ukraine, only 42 percent of one-year-olds had been vaccinated by the end of 2016.
