New research has revealed the UK is the country with the highest number of measles cases in the country since October.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Monday that the new data had been compiled as a result of new testing of children and adults who are exposed to the disease in the UK.
He said the figures showed that more than half of the country’s 2,100 new cases were recorded in the last month, which is an increase of more than 400% compared to the same period last year.
New cases are also rising faster than the overall rate of decline in the rate of cases, Hunt said.
The figures also show that there were more cases recorded in Wales and Scotland than ever before.
More than 1,300 new cases are recorded in Scotland and 1,000 in Wales, compared to just 732 in the rest of the UK last year, according the latest figures from the National Health Service (NHS).
The UK has recorded more than 10,000 cases of the disease since October, when a resurgence in cases began in the West Midlands and other parts of the north of England.
Measles is a highly contagious viral disease which is usually diagnosed between the ages of five and seven.
It can cause pneumonia and encephalitis, which are fatal.
Since the start of the year, there have been more than 1.6 million cases of a disease called Measles-Cooper’s disease in Britain.
Dr Simon Waddington, director of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which monitors the UK, said the latest findings showed that a significant number of people had not been vaccinated and had not got vaccinated at the time of the outbreak.
“We are continuing to see an increase in cases in Wales where vaccination rates have been exceptionally low,” he said.
“This is an area that we need to continue to monitor and we will continue to do so.
This is a very, very worrying situation and we must get people vaccinated.
But we need as many people vaccinated as possible, so that we can keep the disease under control.”
In addition, we need people to be fully vaccinated so that the infection doesn’t spread.
“It’s important for the public to be reassured that there is a small risk of transmission from an immunised individual to another.”
The latest figures show the number of UK cases of Measlella has risen by 4% in just a few weeks.
On Monday, the National Public Health Agency (NPHA) said it had received 1,093 new cases of coronavirus in England since the start on October 3.
However, this was up from 912 cases in October, a decline of nearly 70%.
This included 2,000 new cases in London, where an outbreak is under way.
NHS England, the public health body for the country, said that 1,085 people were hospitalised for respiratory illness in October.
It said that there had been no deaths in the outbreak so far, although two people died in Birmingham.
At least one person has died in Cardiff, where a large outbreak of the virus is now being monitored.
In addition to the increase in new cases, there were 1,922 deaths from coronaviruses in the first four weeks of October.
This is the highest total since the outbreak began in England in December, when there were 6,819 cases.
