A 12-year-old boy died from measles at a hospital in Zakarpattya region, western Ukraine. Chief Doctor Roman Shnitzer claimed that the patient was initially in the moderate state, but his condition severely worsened over a week.The family did not vaccinate him or asked for medical assistance in time, so it appeared to be too late to save him.

Previously, 45 school students and a pregnant teacher got sick with measles in Chernivtsi region, southwestern Ukraine. It turned out that the most of the patients were not vaccinated against the disease.
