I think (IIRC) the death toll in Europe in recent outbreaks was around 1/2400 reported cases. Do not confuse reported cases from actual cases - as some cases surely went unreported. In largely vaccinated societies, the burden of measles may have shifted onto younger and older populations.
There is no way I am going to speculate on how many world wide cases of measles there would be if we stopped vaccinating. You go ahead and have fun with that. I do love how vaccine apologists like to trot out measles, though…shall we do pertussis, flu, chicken pox, hep. b instead?
There is a battle of two wolves inside us. One is good and the other is evil. The wolf that wins is the one you feed.
