The World Health Organization (WHO) has removed the Czech Republic from the list of European countries where measles had been eradicated, along with Britain, Greece and Albania. The organization made the announcement in a report on measles and rubella in Europe. Health experts blame declining vaccinations as a cause. The removals were based on 2018 figures, and new data for 2019 shows the situation in Europe in not improving.
