Which countries are the worst in terms of the number of children dying from measles?

The number of measles cases in Australia has fallen dramatically in recent years, but in some countries there are signs that the trend is reversing.

While the number still rises in many countries, a new report from the University of New South Wales suggests that Australia’s overall rate of deaths from the virus has risen since the start of the pandemic in 2009.

Key points:The report says that the number deaths from measles fell to just 1,049 in 2016-17 from 4,816 in 2009-10, a drop of almost 20 per centIn some countries, the number fell to 1,033 in 2016 from 3,819 in 2009 to 1.1 million in 2016The report is based on data from the Australian Department of Health, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, the World Health Organization, the U.N. Children’s Fund and the UNICEF.

In some areas, the decline has been especially steep, with the number falling from 1.2 million in 2009 before the pandemics to just over 1.0 million in 2015.

The rise is partly down to better vaccination, the report says, with more than 80 per cent of children vaccinated in the U, UK and Australia.

However, the study also found that some countries have also seen significant gains in measles deaths.

The report notes that while the number in Australia fell by about 20 per of the population, in other countries such as New Zealand, Denmark and Belgium, it rose by about 60 per cent.

The study also noted that in some areas the decrease was less dramatic, with some areas seeing a drop in measles cases of just under 15 per cent in 2016, compared with around 60 per year from 2010 to 2016.

In Australia, where the outbreak has killed more than 30,000 people, there were 1,027 deaths from childhood-onset measles in 2016 compared with 2,979 in 2009, the previous peak.

In the UK, where there were nearly 30,700 cases, there was just 1.8 deaths from this form of the disease, while in Germany, where only two cases were recorded, there had just one death from measles in 2014.

In Belgium, where more than 70 per cent were vaccinated, the latest figure for deaths from other forms of the virus is just over 9,000, down from 13,851 in 2010.

Experts warn that more testing and monitoring is needed to be able to better gauge the true level of vaccine uptake in the future.

“We are seeing the first signs that it’s starting to improve,” Dr Paul Kennedy, the lead researcher on the report, told ABC News.

“In some cases, it may even be a little bit better.””
