WHO Declares Monkeypox a Global Health Emergency

WHO Declares Monkeypox a Global Health Emergency

Here we go again.

Who is ready for more lockdowns?

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared monkeypox a global health emergency.

Instead of looking at facts, the secretary-general decided to declare the global health emergency due to a bunch of “unknowns” from those around him:

First, the information provided by countries – which in this case shows that this virus has spread rapidly to many countries that have not seen it before;

Second, the three criteria for declaring a public health emergency of international concern, which have been met;

Third, the advice of the Emergency Committee, which has not reached consensus;

Fourth, scientific principles, evidence and other relevant information – which are currently insufficient and leave us with many unknowns;

And fifth, the risk to human health, international spread, and the potential for interference with international traffic.

WHO’s assessment is that the risk of monkeypox is moderate globally and in all regions, except in the European region where we assess the risk as high.

There is also a clear risk of further international spread, although the risk of interference with international traffic remains low for the moment.

So in short, we have an outbreak that has spread around the world rapidly, through new modes of transmission, about which we understand too little, and which meets the criteria in the International Health Regulations.

For all of these reasons, I have decided that the global monkeypox outbreak represents a public health emergency of international concern.

I’m trying to find the three criteria needed to declare a global health emergency, but I cannot find them. I’m not shocked. I’ll keep looking.

Let’s look at the numbers. Emphasis mine:

More than 16,000 cases of monkeypox have been reported across 75 countries so far this year, and the number of confirmed infections rose 77% from late June through early July, according to WHO data. Men who have sex with men are currently at highest risk of infection.

Five deaths from the virus have been reported in Africa this year. No deaths have been reported outside Africa so far.

So, putting the infections into perspective doesn’t make it quite a big deal.

  • 16,000 cases across 75 countries. That’s a tiny blip on the radar.
  • NO deaths outside of Africa. Only five deaths in Africa.
  • Gay men have it the most.

Okay, yes, leftists. Go ahead and tell me I’m downplaying people’s suffering. But does it need to be a global health emergency?

Or are these bureaucrats hungry for the power they received from COVID that they’ll do anything to get it back? Don’t answer. It’s a rhetorical question.

I see the media is trying to make it appear worse than it is by saying infections grew “77% from late June through early July” and Europe has “more than 80% of confirmed infections worldwide in 2022.”

But the U.S. only has 2,000 cases in 43 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

95% of the cases come from sexual activity. So is it another sexually transmitted infection (STI)? No one wants to talk about the fact that it comes from men having sex with men (MSM) (emphasis mine):

“I think we have to talk more about sex,” says Yale School of Public Health epidemiologist and former HIV activist Gregg Gonsalves. “Everybody has been very clear about stigma, and saying it over and over again. The point is that you still have to address the risk of infection in our community.”

But most researchers say such “ascertainment bias” is unlikely to explain the striking pattern. Although some monkeypox patients have mild infections that may be missed or misdiagnosed, others have very characteristic rashes and agonizing pains that require hospitalization for pain treatment. If many people outside the MSM community had monkeypox, more would have shown up in the statistics by now.

Ashleigh Tuite, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the University of Toronto, says she “understands the hesitation” to focus on MSM, given the risk of stigma that could worsen discrimination and cause those who are affected to delay seeking care. “But based on the data that we have, and based on the contact tracing that’s been done, it’s very clear that this is an MSM-focused outbreak at this point,” she says. “Anyone can get monkeypox, but we’re seeing disease activity primarily among” MSM, confirms Demetre Daskalakis, an HIV prevention specialist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Make it stop. They will go all out on any virus or disease that comes up now. They’re still clinging to COVID, after all.

Seems like this one is pretty easy to avoid.

    I’m waiting for Fauci and the CDC to mandate butt plugs

    As long as at least one participant identifies as other than a man, transmission of the virus is reduced.

    Just like Covid recognized mostly peaceful BLM protests as gatherings to stay away from, monkey pox apparently respects people’s pronouns.

    This is a new era of Social Diseases, when even pathogens are woke.

“Gay men have it the most.”
Then why the picture of two preschoolers?

    That seems to be the stock image that goes with monkeypox. Can’t use a pride parade image or we might increase the stigma of our overlords.

    There have been two cases of toddlers.

    It can be transmitted by close and persistent contact such as a care giver. FOX reported such a connection with gay guys and the toddlers.

    Exactly

      Not saying that buggering kids or pimping them out in exchange for food is behind those particular kids in the photos having caught cases of Monkey Pox. But the UN has turned a blind eye to that and worse.

    They needed legitimate victims who were not openly gay for “diversity, inclusion and equity”

Maybe we should close our borders? Yeah, I know. Crazy idea.

Chigger bites produce the same blisters, mostly on feet. Mowers of long grass get them. Waterproof socks prevent it. Apparently they can’t burrow through those.

Keep your schlong out of other dudes’ asses and you’ll never get the virus.

There is literally no global health crisis since 99% of the world follows the advice above. But what did Rahm Emmanuel say?

“Never let a crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that is it will allow you to do things you could not do before.”

    And if there isn’t an actual crisis, make one up.

    Sanddog in reply to chrisboltssr. | July 23, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    It won’t be long until bisexual men start giving it to women. Like HIV, it moves quickly through the gay community, particularly the segment that has a lot of sex with men they don’t know that well. I suspect it will break out soon and you’ll see women and more kids getting infected as well.

      chrisboltssr in reply to Sanddog. | July 23, 2022 at 9:02 pm

      I’d say ot would probably spread through IV use before sexual intercourse, but, again, it relies upon gays to think of others beyond themselves and their predilections.

Pride month was just a coincidence….

Yeah, f*ck that sh*t. I guess that’s how it spreads, though.

Does anything good come out of homosexuals?

This means that public health authorities worldwide know they have lost the peoples’ confidence, else they just would have promoted covid again.

Monkeypox as an authoritarian play looks like a Hail Mary at this point.

16,836 cases reported worldwide:

74 countries in the world have reported cases
12,000 of these cases are in 5 countries.
54 countries have fewer than 50
126 countries in the world have none

    JackinSilverSpring in reply to Peabody. | July 24, 2022 at 9:33 am

    And what Is the population of those countries? My guess that the number infected is not even a rounding error. This is a fake emergency.

If only Mayor Pete could be the spokesman & manage this for our country like he did with all of those ships that were stuck waiting to come into port during his maternity leave. He was born to lead this crisis.

For Pete’s sake gays quit bending over to slow the curve

As was hinted, “the three criteria needed to declare a global health emergency” probably include an upcoming USA national election.

Declare whatever you want, Tedros.
It lays no onus on me.
I will not comply.

Maybe closing gay bars would help stem the spread, but that’s not gonna happen. Lockdowns for us, open bars for them.

    Exactly, two weeks of focused Intervention to stop the spread .
    The way to avoid monkey pox is to stop monkeying around
    Maybe someone should ask Mickey Dolenz to do a public service announcement.
    It isn’t a specifically sexually transmitted disease, but a disease of close contact, hours in a crowded bar or nightclub would be enough.
    And definitely close, not necessarily sexual contacts, of people who are not MSM will get in in small numbers.

    MDP in reply to txvet2. | July 23, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    To clarify, the Mickey Dolenz quip was completely about him being the last of “The Monkees”, Not because I have any reason to believe he is at any particular risk of it, I don’t and don’t want to cast suspicion on him that is not warranted.

I couldn’t care less.

Can’t think about stopping ghey sex so it’s onward to plague status

Pandemics will now be introduced every even year, to allow vote rigging, until the Communists/Democrats consolidate total control over the USA and shove the last Republican in a boxcar.

Looks like one person downvoting. Notice the posts that have the red numbers. Can you say “troll”? I knew you could.

Note the complete absence of any discussion about closing down Fire Island or any other venues for such activity as opposed to the lockdowns during the worst of Covid
