The death of a 25 year old South Wales man who had measles when he died had not been attributed to measles by doctors. He was sent home with water and paracetamol after three doctors said he did not have measles. A postmortem [autopsy] is due to be held later this week to establish the cause of death and whether measles was implicated.
In a video interview with The Telegraph newspaper [Embed Code], his mother said he was let down by the medical profession. She said he could not walk to the surgery and three doctors saw him and said it was not measles. He was sent him home with water and paracetamol. The Telegraph written report quotes the mother saying “He was covered in a rash, and what with the measles epidemic in Swansea we wanted to get him to hospital. He had been in Morriston Hospital for five or six days before he was sent home.”

MEASLES WAS NEVER THE SCARY DISEASE OFFICIALS CLAIM NOW
According to the British Medical Journal from 1959 experienced family doctors considered measles to be a generally mild disease. They were far from the panic they are today scaring parents. You can read the facts from the BMJ in this CHS article:
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH 1 IN 1000 MEASLES DEATHS FIGURE IS FALSE
There is also nothing like 1 in 1000 deaths from measles as being quoted by public health officials to whip up a public scare. Parents are being frightened by false claims by health officials. The real figures in modern times are totally different and are well-known to health officials.
NO UK DEATHS FROM MEASLES IN HEALTHY CHILDREN SINCE 1992
Since 1992 there have been no deaths in healthy children but well over 80,000 measles cases. The only two deaths reported as measles are now only one [according to National Statistics]: a 14 year old with a lung condition on immunosuppressants was classified as measles in 2006; but the 2008 death also in an immuno compromised child is now doubted to be a measles death.
PHW’s director of health protection Dr Marion Lyons quoted recently:
“Measles is a potentially fatal disease and around one in every 1,000 people who contracts measles in developed countries will die.”.
Swansea measles epidemic: Man who died had measles – BBC 19 April 2013
Data from the Health Protection Agency shows there have been over 80,000 reported cases of measles in the UK since 1992 but only two deaths since then from acute measles and none in healthy children.
See the figures and especially the quote at bottom of HPA web page:
Prior to 2006, the last death from acute measles was in 1992.”
“In 2006 there was one measles death in a 13 years old male who had an underlying lung condition and was taking immunosuppressive drugs. Another death in 2008 was also due to acute measles in unvaccinated child with congenital immunodeficiency whose condition did not require treatment with immunoglobulin. “
NHS VACCINE SAFETY FIGURES USELESS
The claims to vaccine safety compared to the hazards of measles from the Department of Health are also wholly unreliable. Those nice tables from the NHS comparing risks of vaccines to risks of diseases are useless because they fail to take account of under-reporting of adverse reactions to drugs.
It is necessary to multiply by at least 50 times for any drug as a rule of thumb. [Under-reporting in all drugs and not just vaccines is 98 in every 100 adverse reactions: Spontaneous adverse drug reaction reporting vs event monitoring: a comparison: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine Volume 84 June 1991 341.].
But for vaccines it is thought to be a higher rate of under-reporting and could be 1 in 200.
VACCINES IN GENERAL CAUSE AUTISTIC CONDITIONS
Listen to what the experts say from the US government, US and Italian Courts. And do not forget, these Court cases were not the judges deciding on the balance of the evidence but the US and Italian government authorities conceding the cases on the basis of their own experts’ advice:
