CDC Activates Emergency Command Center for Monkeypox

CDC Activates Emergency Command Center for Monkeypox

The agency is ramping up surveillance and concern.

Recently I projected that in the next two weeks, there would be a surge of monkeypox cases for infections caught during the nationwide Gay Pride festivities held this past weekend.

I am not the only one who anticipates the uptick, either. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has officially activated its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to respond to the monkeypox outbreak.

The activation of the EOC “allows the agency to further increase operational support for the response to meet the outbreak’s evolving challenges,” the agency said in a news release.

This facility is currently activated for Covid-19 and is where experts monitor information on other public health emergencies, such as hurricanes, earthquakes and oil spills.

The EOC is a federal command center that monitors disease outbreaks and coordinates the deployment of appropriate emergency response measures.

It comprises over 300 CDC staff working with local, national, and international response partners in public health matters and informs emergency responders on how to stay safe during public health emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency activated the EOC in January 2020 in response to the global coronavirus outbreak.

“CDC’s activation of the EOC allows the agency to further increase operational support for the response to meet the outbreak’s evolving challenges,” the CDC said Tuesday. “The activation of the EOC will serve to further supplement the ongoing work of CDC staff to respond to this outbreak.”

…In the U.S., over 240 total cases of monkeypox have been reported across 27 states, according to CDC tracking. The Biden administration has begun shipping out doses of vaccines that prevent orthopoxvirus, the family of viruses that includes monkeypox. The U.S. has enough doses of the two types of vaccines to administer to millions of people if need be, the CDC said earlier this month.

According to the CDC website, the focus of the EOC response to monkeypox will be a social media campaign directed at medical professionals and gay and bisexual men (who are most at risk of contracting the virus).

Globally, early data suggest that gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men make up a high number of monkeypox cases. CDC continues to provide guidance and raise awareness among frontline healthcare providers and public health. CDC is also raising awareness of the current situation with the public through its website and social media in addition to direct partner and community outreach.

I sure hope the public health professionals follow the actual science in this response rather than the response that supports a preferred narrative.

I must point out that many Americans are greeting this news with a great deal of skepticism.

It’s the Democrats plan for the midterms. All gay people will be able to vote by mail.

Another easily avoidable disease that spreads because a certain part of the population just won’t behave responsibly. And this one is nowhere as deadly as AIDS was and harder to contract. Another Darwin event.

This is proof the CDC is overfunded. Cut its funding to $0.

After the covid fiasco, I have no reason to believe anything the CDC says. All trust in them, and the Govt. in general has been destroyed and there’s nothing this current joke of an “administration” can do to regain it.

    After the COVID fiasco?

    I have absolutely no trust in any government agency. Anytime a bureaucrat has the ability to gin up a crisis on demand to justify their budget, increase their power, and expand their reach, they will act on it.

    1. The CDC after the AIDS fiasco (Anally Injected Death Serum within the gay community)
    2. Global Cooling, followed by Global Warming, followed by Climate Change that has been foisted on the citizenry by the EPA since the early 70s
    3. How many more?

    I am getting the impression that perhaps the gay community needs to stop sodomizing each other. Otherwise, they will be the cause of their own demise.

“I sure hope the public health professionals follow the actual science in this response rather than the response that supports a preferred narrative.”

Are you ok?

Let me guess, the new “mask” will be drawers marked “do not enter” on the back?

This is an opportunity for the public health community to begin restoring public confidence by working to earn back our trust through reasonable and responsible actions rooted in science not science fiction. I doubt that they will do so because of their timidity when any ‘oppressed’ group is involved. Especially when simple changes in life choices of the group members would be effective.

With monkey pox in the gay community predominantly, for now, restricting intimate contact to a partner in a long-term committed relationship. For the Rona advising the obese to refrain from a second helping of biscuits and gravy; diet and exercise. Both those recommendations would be far more effective than fear porn and masks but neither fits the ideological philosophy of our elite class so any references to them will be tepid at best from the public health community.

    Aint gonna happen Chief, here’s why

    They literally already base jumped from the cliff with their false Covid operation ( yes, that’s a well planned operation with nothing legitimately scientific attached to it)

    That means they are not committed and there is no return.

    If they adopted anything even resembling the scientific method now, it would show and prove by default that they were deliberate in the Covid plot.

    They have no interest in “restoring faith”- their end goal is forced compliance with no recourse.

    They don’t care what the real truth is or what the sheeple believe- just obey the dictates.

      CommoChief in reply to taurus the judge. | June 29, 2022 at 8:34 am

      As I stated they won’t even try to restore sanity. They are constrained from doing so because their ideological philosophy refuses to countenance the concept of individual responsibility. It’s an all or none proposition and they are too invested to back off.

      The only accountability they ever seek is based on the oppressed v oppressor group membership dynamic of their construction v anything resembling evidence. They aren’t scientists when they disregard evidence in favor of evangelism for their narrative.

      As you point out they have gone too far out on the limb and are too frightened or too prideful to shimmy back from their absurd ideological predicament even if they wanted to do so. Most of them don’t want to try to do so.

      They have no interest in “restoring faith”
      Exactly right. The only thing they want to restore is authority.

Uh oh, them monkeys again. Wait until CDC starts asking the sheep questions….

Predatory homosexual men have a long history of pushing STD epidemics. They pass around many other diseases besides herpes, HIV, and monkeypox.

The interesting thing is, HIV is no longer transmitted between homosexual partners in committed relationships, male or female, in the United States.

texansamurai | June 29, 2022 at 9:20 am

have about as much chance of contracting monkeypox as being the first texan to stand on mars

The only way to end this monkey business is quit fooling around. Keep your monkey under control. Don’t let anyone fool around with your money and don’t fool around with anyone else’s.

There is no outbreak. An outbreak implies risk to the general population. These people are liars.

Daily Fauci humor:

We should be all over this making him say the line:

“I got Covid but I’m thankful that I’m triple jabbed or it would have been
worse.”

There IS a God!

    I doubt that Fauci’s symptoms are all that bad. More severe could mean his throat is a bit more sore or his nose is more stuffy.

      You’re missing the point. He is fully vaxed and too additional medication 2 weeks ago and then got sick again… for the 3rd time. Great “vaccine” ain’t it? What exactly does it do and why do they continue to insist on pushing this after Covid is over and 95% of the population has now either been vaxed or been infected to give them natural immunity? It’s been a hoax from the beginning and I take a lot of pleasure seeing this fraud get sick 3 times. (so far).

So they recycle the red Covid 19 spikey virus graphic and color it green for Monkey Pox? I guess it would have been stigmatic to make it rainbow colored?

The_Mew_Cat | June 29, 2022 at 3:38 pm

Strictly speaking MonkeyPox is not a sexually transmitted disease. It should spread by any kind of close contact with someone who has its pustules on their hands or other body parts. So, it should spread among schoolchildren, during intense contact sports, and in massage parlors. I wonder how long it will take to escape the gay community and spread in other likely venues.
