CDC raises monkeypox alert to level 2, recommends masks during travel

Monkey Pox

NY Post:

While not on the level of COVID-19, monkeypox has spread across the globe out of Africa since March. Monkeypox symptoms begin as relatively flu-like but soon expand to the swelling of lymph nodes and a rash across the body and face. Ultimately, painful lesions form on rash areas, leaving severe scarring.

“Cases of monkeypox have been reported in Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia,” the CDC wrote in its alert.

“Some cases were reported among men who have sex with men. Some cases were also reported in people who live in the same household as an infected person,” it added.

The disease may have gone undetected in Western countries under the guise of an STI, according to Dr. Amesh Adalja. There are a number of STIs that have similar symptoms to monkeypox.

“What’s likely happened is an endemic infectious disease from Africa found its way into a social and sexual network and then was greatly aided by major amplification events, like raves in Belgium, to disseminate around the world,” Adalja told NBC News.

  1. The CDC said monkey pox is NOT AIRBORNE. It is spread by sexual contact or sharing sheets. How many people share sheets or have sex on a plane? What will a mask do? How long will people allow them to insult their intelligence. This is just their way to get around the federal judge striking down the mask mandate for public transport.

    A disease which has a 5- 20 day incubation period spread to 200 people in 20 countries in less than 20 days. Did they all have sex with the same person or is it something else these people have in common, that has nothing to do with monkeypox?

  2. My wife and i felt really fortunate Peter managed to complete his researching using the precious recommendations he gained when using the blog. It is now and again perplexing to just choose to be handing out secrets which usually many people have been trying to sell. So we remember we need the website owner to thank because of that. Most of the explanations you made, the easy site navigation, the friendships your site help to engender – it’s got mostly astonishing, and it’s really facilitating our son and us reason why the matter is brilliant, and that’s exceedingly serious. Many thanks for the whole lot!
