I do not find this surprising at all.
This is what I found on CNN.com:
(CNN) — The number of people infected with measles in the European region in 2018 is the highest in a decade, the World Health Organization said Thursday.
According to newly released data for the year, 82,596 people were infected and 72 people (children and adults) died from measles last year. Sixty-one percent of those infected were hospitalized, according to the report.
The number of cases reported is “the highest this decade,” WHO said in a statement, noting that the numbers are “3 times the total reported in 2017 and 15 times the record low number of people affected in 2016.” The illnesses in 2018 were reported in 47 of the 53 countries that make up the WHO European region.
The United States is experiencing measles outbreaks in New York state, New York City and Washington state, which the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said began when travelers to Israel and the Ukraine returned to the US infected.
