Samoa ends measles state of emergency

Samoa has lifted a six-week state of emergency that had been put in place amid a measles epidemic. Most of the 81 killed in the outbreak were babies and young children. Under the emergency orders put in place last month, schools were closed, travel and public gatherings were restricted, and red flags were placed outside the homes where occupants hadn’t been vaccinated.

If you don't learn the easy way, the life will teach you the same lesson the hard way. A lesson in itself.

Red flags outside the houses of unvaccinated... hmm reminds me of Nazi Germany. Things to ponder sheeple.
