The head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova said the benefits of this vaccine against measles, saying that Russians almost never get sick with this disease.

«We almost never get sick. Well, if you compare our 2 thousands of cases of measles, with more than 40 thousands in Europe today is, of course, different numbers and different results,» — said Popov in an interview to the program «Pozdnyakov» on NTV.

Measles — an acute infectious viral disease with a high level of sensitivity, is transmitted by airborne droplets. A major factor in reducing morbidity is vaccination.
