    Monkeypox

    There is a new outbreak of Monkey pox in UK, Portugal, Spain, Canada and the US. It is unlikely to spread widely but the scientists are not sure how it has spread so far.

    Hopefully they are not locking down the entire countries as a result.

    There is now a suspected case in a returned traveller in Sydney.
    It seems to have been caught quickly and hopefully will not spread.

    There is now a confirmed case of Monkeypox in Victoria.

    For a disease that does not spread quickly or easily it seems to have made it through Europe, the USA, Canada and now Australia quite quicly.

    Monkey pox has been around since 1958 in Africa..... First it was found in monkeys n then it quickly jumped into Humans probably in local human market places.

    Sprouty has seen Monkey Pox appear here stateside from time to time probably thanks to our robust tourist industry where anybody can jump on a plane in Africa n quickly within 12 hrs be off boarding in New York City....Joy !!!1

    Really it isn't that big of a concern here stateside due to da fact that Monkey Pox isn't that life threatening(less than 1% death rate. Its close viral Relative da Small Pox(aka Black Death) which wiped out Europe back in da days is way way more lethal .....

    Monkey Pox is easily cured by giving da sufferers 2 full 10 day rounds of Augmentin which is an antibiotic that is strong enough to cure da Small Pox along with Monkey Pox ....

    Looks like da States as of may/20th/2022 has now got 2 patients w Active Monkey Pox that have traveled by way of Canada n are being Que'd n being treated in NY.... Both cases of Monkey Pox also are being traced tracked to see how many people have come into direct contact w these patients stateside to keep this from getting outta hand stateside.....

    Da Most alarming thing about this recent outbreak of Monkey Pox is da Fact that da Republican Right here stateside is spreading False Info that da Monkey Pox is mainly carried n spread in da adult male gay communities world wide......

    It is no surprise that Republicans would try and turn it into gay male disease but it is a disgrace.

    I don't fully understand what is shown in the link but it seems to indicate there is some genetic difference between the strain of Monkeypox in the current outbreak and previous samples of Monkeypox

    There is now news in da States that there is at least 6 confirmed cases here of Monkey Pox. 2 in MASS & 1 in NY City, 1 down in da heart of FLA, (new home of da republican party) & now we got 2 in Utah's Salt Lake City.

    Funny How da News of a Monkey Pox Outbreak scares Everyone here stateside especially da Republican Partys Right Wingers. But Yet Everyone Stateside down plays da BA.2.12.1 type of Corona19 Designer Virus which BTW now is killing over 100 people daily right here in Arizona.Sprout can't imagine da true daily death toll in da entire USA right this min from da Corona19 Designer Virus.(100 x 50 states = 5,000 USA Citizens dying daily here)

    Sprouty totally thinks that da Republican Right including now da CDC (Feds) are trying to place da blame right on da Gay Adult Male Community for this recent stateside Monkey Pox Outbreak. When in fact Monkey Pox can spread from anybody to anybody simple by staying in a hotel room where some stupid lazy maid didn't change da sheets on da beds in between guest stays. Another Example is how da Monkey Pox can Spread is simple by sitting on a bus or Airplane seat where an infected Monkey Pox person has sat recently....

    Yes, it seems to be spreading all over the USA, there appears to be a case in Seatle as well, North, South, East or West it is there.

    It seems to be, unfortunately, spreading mostly in men who have sex with men, but that is just an unfortunate occurance. I agree, there is absolutely nothing stopping it spreading between people of any sexuality and as the outbreak continues I am sure it will move more into the general community.

    Women also have sex with men and they are also ''people'' so I guess it is spreading among all, right? .
