    Default To elaborate.....

    Rates of death from measles were declining until vaccines became common for the disease:

    One hundred years ago in Scotland, the measles case-fatality rate was 3040 deaths per 1000 cases [208]. In the United States, mortality from measles decreased from 25 per 1000 reported cases in 1912 [209, 210] to 1 per 1000 reported cases in 1962 [211]. In New York State, measles mortality decreased by >15-fold long before the introduction of measles vaccination (figure 2) [212]. US and UK case-fatality rates were ∼1 per 1000 reported measles cases from the 1940s through the 1980s

    Measles kills a lot more people each year than Ebola. It also is much more contagious.
