The Great Measles Epidemic of Wales—the one that’s being used to stampede sheeple into vaccine clinics for the MMR jab—never happened. Seriously! It was faked. The actual data from the Welsh government on cases of measles proves it.

Update: It is now 10 May 2013 and we have an updated report for you! As might be expected, the number of reported and confirmed measles cases has increased, though it also appears that this so-called epidemic is winding down.
The current number of reported cases for 1 January – 7 May is 1103. For some reason, the numbers for 2012 have been updated, with a total of 111 reported cases in November and December of 2012, for a total of 1214 reported cases during the recent outbreak. It should be noted that only 33 cases are reported for the first week of May, indicative of a strong slowing trend in the outbreak.
The number of confirmed cases lags the number of reported cases by a significant amount. Confirmed measles cases through 7 May is 279, and for November-December 2012 it was 13 (total of 18 for the year). In this measles outbreak, the total number of confirmed cases is now 292.
Why were the figures for 2012 changed? That’s a good question. Because of reader Tomas Kotrik’s inquiries (see comments below), Wales has added a statement to their website stating that confirmations from labs outside Wales are not included in these reports.
All measles patients are asked to give saliva samples, which are sent to labs for analysis. Therefore, the number of confirmed measles cases is salient to the severity of an outbreak. The number of reported cases is simply irrelevant. So, as the “Great Wales Measles Outbreak of 2013″ winds down, the total number of confirmed cases is only 292, only enough for a small fraction of GPs to have seen even a single case.Multiply the number ten times over, and you still wouldn’t have enough cases for every GP to see one. An epidemic? Hardly!
The news media have been chock-full of the “measles epidemic” in Wales, along with the young man whom it was claimed had died of it. He didn’t—and the epidemic never happened. The proof is in Wales’ own official statistics.
The young man who died during the proclaimed measles epidemic, Gareth Colfer-Williams, did not die from measles. But even those few reports that admitted he didn’t die of the disease went on to a discourse of how terrible measles is and how the “epidemic” was so horrible. In the BBC article linked, we’re informed that “83 people have needed hospital treatment for the illness.” That, though, cannot be true.
The fact is that, though 446 measles notifications were made between 1 January and 31 March of this year, those were merely reports. The reality is that only 26 cases were actually confirmed!
You may have noted that this faux measles epidemic started in November, and the figures for last year weren’t included. However, that doesn’t help make the case for an epidemic, or even come close to the claim that 83 people had to be hospitalized for measles. You see, the total number of confirmed measles cases in Wales for all of 2012 was 14. So, adding 14 for all of 2012 to 26 for the first three months of this year, we get a total of 40 confirmed cases of measles—less than half the falsely reported 83 hospitalizations!
Here’s the proof:
(You’ll need to scroll down to see the measles data.)
Admittedly, this doesn’t include the month of April—but with the presentation of this information, is it believable that the figures for April will make any difference? (Unless, of course, they’re simply faked—and who knows just how far these fear mongerers are willing to go?)
Keep in mind that measles is a reportable disease. That means any doctor who suspects someone has measles must report it. It does not mean that the person has the measles. When a disease is considered reportable and there’s supposedly an epidemic going on, doctors aren’t taking any chances with their licenses to practice. They’re reporting anything that bears the slightest resemblance to measles. However, as is obvious here, it doesn’t mean that the doctors have any skill at diagnosing it.
So what’s going on? It doesn’t take much to figure out that this has been nothing but a plan to fear monger people into rushing out for the MMR vaccine. Sadly, it’s worked. Far too many sheeple have been stampeded to the clinics. Baaa! Unfortunately, we can anticipate that it will also be used to promote forced vaccination.
Don’t ever forget that the Great Welsh Measles Epidemic of 2013 never happened. It was faked.
