    An age-old childhood killer has resurfaced in parts of England and Asia, and scientists are scrambling to figure out why. Scarlet fever killed many children at the beginning of the 1900s, and it is taking a toll once again. The disease, for the most part, was long forgotten, but recent cases signal a new epidemic. According to a recent research article. “…the magnitude of the recent upsurge is greater than any documented in the last century.”

    An outbreak of scarlet fever is especially troubling because it can lead to death in young children. While it has been declining over the last two centuries, a recent surge in new cases is signaling the comeback of the bacteria. Scarlet fever is caused by the same bacteria that ends in strep throat. Group A Streptococcus pyogenes is highly contagious.

    While outbreaks are currently being seen in both East Asia and England, they seem to be following a different path. The number of cases in East Asia has been on a steady rise since 2009. The cases in England seemed to suddenly spike with no previous real growth

    In 2013, England had 4,700 documented cases of scarlet fever. A staggering 15,637 cases were reported in 2014. This is more than triple the number of cases in just one year. The numbers grew to almost 20,000 in 2016. This is a fifty-year high for the United Kingdom.

    Beyond the jump in the number of cases in England, officials are also worried about the increase in the number of cases that require being admitted to a hospital. Hospital stays tied to scarlet fever jumped from 703 in 2013 to 1,300 in 2016.
    Obviously its Trumps fault

    Wait till all of the other formerly eradicated diseases start popping up, thanks to those immigrants from the 3rd world countries.

    Build that wall----quickly. It will be cheaper than the toll all those diseases would take in our own country.

    I have a feeling that quite a few of the old wiped out diseases are already here, SLW ...

    We are just not being told about them, or to what extent, yet!

    The return of Scarlet Fever, the Black Death breaking out in Eastern Africa... it's downright Biblical. I'm waiting for the earthquake and tsunami to take out California and I'll be certain the end times are gearing up.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
