Measles epidemic does not threaten Ukraine, director of the Gromashevsky Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases Viktoriya Zadorozhna said during a press conference, ForUm correspondent reports.

"We will not talk about the threat of measles epidemic, because we already passed the peak of epidemic rise in 2012. Now we see the so-called "tail" of that peak. We will observe such tendency till the end of this year," Zadorozhna said.

According to the specialist, measles is a cyclic disease, which means the so-called epidemic rises, when the disease incidence increases dramatically.

Zadorozhna also noted that today the main problem in fight against measles is the low level of immunization among citizens.
