  • An epidemic of mumps is sweeping Britain.
  • There were 5,042 recorded cases of mumps in England in 2019 – four times the number in 2018 and the highest level in a decade.
  • Just as measles cases have jumped dramatically in recent years, the rise in the incidence of mumps is directly linked to the fall-off in Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination rates.
