Scurvy, tuberculosis, scarlet fever may conjure up images of a Charles Dickens tale. However, diseases of the Victorian Era are re-emerging in modern day Britain.
TB is one disease often synonymous with poverty, affecting the most vulnerable. However, health officials warn strains of the disease lie undetected in all parts of modern society and could break out in the future.
In fact, over the last five years in England, cases of scarlet fever have risen 136%, scurvy by 38% and cholera by 300%, though for scurvy and cholera the numbers are very small.
So why the resurgence?
"Reduced vaccine uptake for example with measles, reduced population immunity for example with whooping cough, increased poverty as well as an influx in migration and malnutrition," said Dr. Martinez-Alier.

Its the huge migrant numbers. Combined with absolutely,sh1tty socialist healthcare that does not care at all.
They try to blame it on non vaccine takers. Such propaganda bullsh1t.
It’s right here in the USA too.
Do you think it is only Europe? we have our own share of third World vagrants flooding over our Southern Border bringing all manner of grotesque diseases with them.
“They try to blame it on non vaccine takers. Such propaganda bullsh1t.”
How do you get scurvy? If you just eat a normal diet it will be almost impossible to get scurvy. There are also 100s of food items that add Vitamin C either as a gimmick or as a preservative.
England is allowing itself to be flooded with ignorant immigrants.
Also most of these disease do not have vaccines for them, or they are not recommended as part of a routine vaccination schedule. The real reason is unchecked immigration. We use to house sick immigrants in isolation until they were disease free, or if they had TB we would send them back.
Turn your back on God and you will live in Hell on Earth and then in the hereafter.
Scurvy in this day and age?
Combine the disgusting and stupid "migrants, with the lunatics who are anti-vaxxers and this is what ya get. :-(
They do the same thing here and way too many here on “our side” fall for the same crapola.
Oh, Boo-Hoo. Where is my violin?
England brought this all upon themselves
If the filthy, disgusting "migrants" come in sans vaccinations, the English population, IF they were all vaccinated, wouldn't catch and spread the diseases.
OTOH, scurvy and cholera have to do with lack of vitamin C for the former and disgusting bathroom habits for the later.
Non vaccinators is used to describe endemic british who are just fine, not the immigrants coming with diseases nobody there has much experience or immunity builup against. Two difeferent groups. Nonvaccine british are not the cause.
They are for Whopping cough spreading like wildfire.
Alcoholics get scurvy. Especially homeless alcoholics. I suspect a lot of drug addicts are also vulnerable.
Most prefer to live on the street since shelters have rules agains drugs and alcohol.
