The god problem:measles

From 538 Significant Digits:

4 Brooklyn ZIP codes

New York City officials declared a public health emergency yesterday. In what is the “broadest vaccination order in the United States in nearly three decades,” the city ordered mandatory measles vaccinations for four ZIP codes, in an attempt to stem an outbreak concentrated among ultra-Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. At least 285 people have gotten measles in the city since September. [The Washington Post]

Fundamentalists are nuts.
