Ebola-hit countries in West Africa are
ripe for a measles outbreak that could
infect hundreds of thousands of people,
US researchers warn.
More than 10,000 people have died in
the largest ever outbreak of the virus.
But a study in the journal Science sug-
gests there could be even more deaths from
other diseases because of the devastating
impact on the countries vaccination pro-
Experts said an increase in such infec-
tions was "likely".
There have been 24,350 cases of Ebola
in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
Many healthcare facilities closed and the
fear of Ebola meant people did not show
up at those that remained.
It has had a knock-on effect on immu-
nisation campaigns for measles, polio, TB
and other diseases.
An international team of scientists tried
to estimate the impact on measles protec-
They ran detailed models assuming 75
per cent of vaccination programmes had
The scientists estimated that 20,000
more people were becoming susceptible
to measles every month.
At the start of the outbreak they said
there were 778,000 unvaccinated children
and the total would increase to 1,129,000
after 18 months of the outbreak.
Their sophisticated predictions suggested
this would translate to an additional
100,000 measles cases, on top of the
127,000 that would be anticipated in a
pre-Ebola measles outbreak.
It could lead to 16,000 extra deaths,
more than have died from Ebola, the team
Dr Justin Lessler, of Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity in the US, said: "Measles in par-
ticular is known to show up during or after
humanitarian crises because it is so infec-
"The addition of so many unvaccinated
children to the already considerable at-
risk population significantly increases the
likelihood of a major measles outbreak.
"Measles is not the only health threat
that has been made worse by the Ebola
crisis, and may not even be the most dire,
but it is one we can do something about."
Prof Jonathan Ball, of the University of
Nottingham, told the BBC News website:
"The Ebola virus outbreak has put immense
strain on healthcare systems that were
"It was always likely that we would see
an upturn in other diseases and infections
as these creaking systems diverted attention
to fight the emerging Ebola virus epidem-
"These are predictions, and not hard
fact, but we shouldn t be surprised if we
see an upturn in measles, as we know that
immunisation is key to controlling what
can be a very serious infection.
"The real lesson from all of this is the
need to build better healthcare systems
and to overturn what are significant global
health inequalities." (BBC)

YOUR DAILY HEALTH
News and advice
Warning over young
A "worryingly high" number of children with
type 1 diabetes have warning signs of long-term
health complications, including blindness, a report
says. And charities say this leaves "great concern"
for their future health---some patients show early
markers of eye, heart and kidney disease.
Data from England and Wales suggests more
than 1,000 new cases were recorded in people
under-25 last year. But overall blood sugar control
in this group has improved, the study shows.
Type 1 diabetes often appears in childhood. It is
caused by the immune system destroying cells in
the pancreas, leaving patients unable to control
their blood sugar.
This is different to the far more common type
2 diabetes, which is largely due to an unhealthy
lifestyle. The Royal College of Paediatrics and
Child Health (RCPCH) looked at figures from
young people's diabetes units across England and
Wales in 2013-14. Its analysis shows that 26,867
children and young people with diabetes were
recorded last year, compared with 25,221 in
2012/13. But just 16 per cent underwent all seven
annual health checks that are recommended to
monitor their blood sugar control and any
complications. Persistently high blood sugar
levels can lead to serious problems, including
heart disease and kidney disorders.
The figures suggest:
• More than 27 per cent of young people had
high blood pressure---putting them at risk of
• Some seven per cent had markers of future
• Over 14 per cent had early signs of eye
disease---putting them at risk of blindness in later
• More than 25 per cent were classed as obese.
Barbara Young, Diabetes UK chief executive,
said there was evidence that children were
experiencing problems with their eyesight or
kidneys before they reached their 18th birthday.
She said: "This is tragic and we have great
concerns for their future health if they are already
showing signs of complications at such a young
age. "There is an urgent need for the NHS to
make the pace of improvement quicker." Dr Justin
Warner, of the RCPCH, said: "This is the first time
we have been able to collect and analyse the data
on early warning signs and levels are higher than
we would expect. (BBC)
"The addition of so many
unvaccinated children to the already
considerable at-risk population
significantly increases the
likelihood of a major measles
outbreak. Measles is not the only
health threat that has been made
worse by the Ebola crisis, and may
not even be the most dire, but it is
one we can do something about.
The Ebola virus outbreak has put
immense strain on healthcare
systems that were already
stretched. It was always likely that
we would see an upturn in other
diseases and infections as these
creaking systems diverted attention
to fight the emerging Ebola virus
epidemic"---Prof Jonathan Ball
