It’s the most widespread outbreak of the disease yet.

Spain, Portugal, Canada and England have recorded most of the cases. In the United States, one person each in Massachusetts, California and New York City and two in Utah have been confirmed to have monkeypox, and four others are confirmed to haveinfections, the genus that includes monkeypox and smallpox. Those cases — one in New York City and Washington state and two in Florida — are presumed to be monkeypox and are undergoing confirmation at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“There’s no need for panic. There’s no need for fear, and there’s no need to stigmatize anyone who has this disease,” Adesola Yinka-Ogunleye, an epidemiologist at the Institute for Global Health at University College London and a monkeypox expert with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.Monkeypox is a DNA virus in thegenus, which includes smallpox, cowpox and camelpox. It is not a new disease, says Yinka-Ogunleye. The virus was first discovered in monkeys in 1958.

Pustules, such as these seen on a person’s hands and face, are a hallmark of monkeypox. Infectious virus is released from these lesions and can spread to others.Since 2017, Nigeria has had sporadic cases of monkeypox, mostly in urban areas, she says. The country has had 46 cases in 2022 as of April 30.

“Our virus definitely comes from Portugal,” says Philippe Selhorst, a virologist at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium, who posted theto Virological.org on May 20. The DNA sequence of the virus is very similar to ones from Portugal. The patient had traveled to Lisbon shortly before developing a rash, further solidifying the link.

Can’t u use smallpox vaccine to help protect against monkeypox?

Send to Rand Paul so can let it rip.

Is it like common cold viruse groups ?

'There's no need for panic' is about as reassuring as 'We need to talk...' Don't tell the public how they need to feel or what emotions are or aren't appropriate. Tell them what it is, what's going on, and what is being done about it. Stick to practical, useful information.

I WILL NOT SLEEP WITH ANYONE WITH THE POX

MONKEYPOX!!!

And there you have it gay men are the cause of out break well it would figure after all hiv and aids didn't stop the gay people think monkeypox will I doubt it

When will the devloped countreis come to realize that the neglect of Africa shall eventually backfire on the rest of the world. Covid and the neglect of vaccination was the first example and I fear many more to come

If it is a proper pox virus, it will have a tough outer coat which allows it to survive in the environment for decades. This allows the virus to wait until hosts without immunity show up years later. A person contaminates their clothing and environment.

What can we learn from that?

Most of all viruses spread by close contacts.

Oh.

Studying this next quarter

This is not science, this is state propaganda.

As another meme suggests, the K is silent. Targets a demographic group that followed the WHO herd mentality at every turn.

How much gay sex are people having?

Hopefully the bad guys of the world dont become smart eough to realize the potential of bioweapons

US in process of releasing monkeypox vaccine from national stockpile for 'high-risk' people: CDCThe United States is responding to a request for the release of monkeypox vaccine from the nation's Strategic National Stockpile as a global outbreak of cases is under investigation. Of course another vaccine 😡😡😡 There is NO Monkeypox vaccine, none, they are going to use Smallpox and Jynneos vaccine and hoping that it could be somehow effective as well against Monkeypox for people at risk only. Don't try to start an hysteria again, enought already.

Pfizer CEO Says He ‘Wouldn't Worry Much' About Monkeypox; Cuts Drug Prices for Low-Income CountriesPfizer’s CEO said Wednesday that he “wouldn’t worry much” about a recent monkeypox outbreak that has seen cases surge in non-endemic countries. We should all collectively agree that wisdom dictates we evaulate whatever any given CEO says, find the opposite= believe that. Capitalism is organized theft and greed for powerful people. We can do better my fellow Americans. Why do we accept the ideas of 1776= still best?
