Dear Oh Dear…. finger pointing doesn’t matter anymore

  • Children are the most vulnerable group in the measles epidemic
    Children are the most vulnerable group in the measles epidemic

The NZ media carried a story about a suspected measles case on a flight from Apia to Auckland, who unknowingly exposed the passengers to the infectious disease.

After a quick glancing read a thought suddenly jumped up.  What’s the big deal?

 If all these people are getting off in Auckland, what’s one person compared to 2000 confirmed cases of measles waiting for these travellers to arrive?

 In the end they will be exposed to the virus one way or another. 

Did anyone bothered to ask who carried the measles virus from Auckland to Apia?  Someone did or we wouldn’t be in this mess now.

Maybe it’s too late to ask but the virus did not fly on its own from Auckland.

The measles is everywhere now.

The time to start pointing fingers at who’s carrying what and from where is not going to make anyone immune.  Go get an injection.

“….you’ll have to take your turn behind the kids, dear
