US President Donald Trump has urged parents to get their children vaccination, as the country battles the highest number of measles cases since it declared in 2000 that the virus was eliminated.

“They have to get the shots. The vaccinations are so important. This is really going around now. They have to get their shots,” Trump told CNN on Friday.


Measles cases in the US have surpassed the highest number on record since 2000.

As of Wednesday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said there were a total 695 cases of measles in the country this year.

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
