New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio speaks during a news conference declaring a public health emergency in parts of Brooklyn in response to a measles outbreak, requiring unvaccinated people living in the affected areas to get the vaccine or face fines, in the Orthodox Jewish community of the Williamsburg neighborhood, in Brooklyn, New York City, U.S., April 9, 2019.

New York City on Tuesday declared a public health emergency and ordered mandatory measles vaccinations amid an outbreak, becoming the latest national flashpoint over refusals to inoculate against risky diseases.

The Brooklyn outbreak has been traced to an unvaccinated child who became infected on a visit to Israel, which is also grappling with an outbreak, according to New York City's Department of Health. The cases led to 21 hospitalizations, including five admissions to intensive care units.

People who resist could be fined $1,000. Officials in New York City were no different in their blame.

Trump says he'll put tariffs on $11B in European Union goods
The EU called the US$11 billion sum cited by the USTR " greatly exaggerated " and said preparations were underway to hit back. The U.S. expects the WTO will say this summer that it can take countermeasures to offset the European Union subsidies.

"This outbreak is being fueled by a small group of anti-vaxxers in these neighborhoods". He was joined by city health officials who decried what they called "misinformation" spread by opponents of vaccines. "We've seen a large increase in the number of people vaccinated in these neighbourhoods, but as Passover approaches, we need to do all we can to ensure more people get the vaccine".

Health officials have been urging New Yorkers to get their children vaccinated to stem the outbreak of measles, which is a highly contagious disease that can cause pneumonia, encephalitis, and death. Of those infected, 246 were children, NY health commissioner Oxiris Barbot said. He also said that concerns about an unsupported link between the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) and autism have contributed to some people refusing vaccination and remaining unprotected against the disease.

The city has also threatened to shut down yeshivas, or traditional Jewish religious schools, if they do not follow an order to keep unvaccinated children out of class.

A judge has lifted Rockland County, N.Y.'s emergency declaration keeping unvaccinated minors out of public places. It says the vaccine is 97 percent effective.
