Nobody wants to face the public wrath of the internet but anti-vaxxers experience this daily as people continue to troll them, however, you know what's even worse than getting challenged by someone you don't know online - someone online with a medical degree. That's right according to data analysis from CNN measles cases in the United States have surpassed the highest number on record since the disease was declared eliminated nationwide in 2000.

Doctors are employing all strategies to fight the disease from using electronic medical records to identify unvaccinated patients living in outbreak zones to refusing to accept patients who haven't been vaccinated - and now they have taken the fight to Twitter. Sure some of these savage tweets are funny, but believe it or not, fighting misinformation on the internet is vitally important, even when it's done in a simple tweet. Scroll down below to read some anti-vaxxers get destroyed by doctors and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Measles became a nationally notifiable disease in the United States in 1912, meaning that health care providers and laboratories were required to report diagnosed cases. During the first decade of reporting, an average of about 6,000 measles-related deaths were reported annually.

In the 1950s, researchers found a way to isolate the measles virus in a patient's blood, and in the 1960s, they were successful in transforming the isolated virus into a vaccine. The vaccine was licensed and became part of the measles vaccination program, introduced in 1963.

Before the introduction of the measles vaccination program, according to the CDC, there was an estimated 3 to 4 million people getting infected with the disease yearly nationwide. Following this program the numbers of cases and deals from measles substantially dropped. In 1994 there were 963 reported cases, which fell to 508 cases in 1996.

This is actually a very good strategy. Just make sure that anti rub-patients also get a treatment with rotting swedish fish, also internally.

Jump forward to 2000, when the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S and there were only 86 reported cases. This meant there had been no continuous transmission of the disease for over 12 months. These numbers only continued to plummet until a resurgence in 2014 where the country experienced 23 separate outbreaks, which occurred primarily among the unvaccinated Amish community.

In 2018 the U.S saw 17 separate outbreaks and the numbers continue to climb. According to the CDC, the disease was largely imported and spread among unvaccinated pockets: "Eighty-two people brought measles to the U.S. from other countries in 2018. This is the greatest number of imported cases since measles was eliminated from the U.S. in 2000."

Their "evidence" is: I saw someone called Karen, who is definitely not a doctor or a medical researcher, write a Facebook post about it, so that's my evidence

I will never get over the fact that some parents would rather have a dead child than an autistic child.... (not that vaccines cause autism)

Unfortunately, you see to this day parents with a cigarette on their hand pusing strollere, the smoke sinking to where the baby is lying. Thus, the unfortunate answer is that enough parents simply do not care.

Above explanation by Eve Switzer pretty much describes what anti-vaxxers do on the internet and in real life, and it also describes why they are sometimes succesful. "Health freedom" sounds so much better than being "pro desease" and "quackery".
