Does the monkeypox outbreak truly warrant a global public health emergency?

  • Absolutely, there’s rapid spread & limited knowledge about new modes of transmission
  • The rapid spread is slightly concerning, but it seems like a fairly mild disease
  • There’s no need for hysteria, we already have an effective vaccine to fight it

      The WHO has declared monkeypox as a public health emergency of global concern on a meeting held on 21st July, 2022. Now, just about 2 weeks later, the White House has also declared monkeypox as a public health emergency.

      Monkeypox is a virus from the family Poxviridae which manifests within 5-21 days after exposure. It’s a virus which affects humans as well as some other animals, and its symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, fever, and a rash with blisters. Men who have intercourse with other men are at the most at risk for this condition.

      In an unusual turn of events, a split emergency committee which ruled 9-6 in favour of not declaring this a global health emergency was overrule by Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the organisation’s director general. There’s a high threshold to be met for declaring a disease as a public health emergency of global concern, so while some are skeptical about this decision, other medical professionals are equally concerned about the progression of this outbreak.

      Me preocupa lo mucho que puede tardar antes que la persona presente síntomas de 5 a 21 dias.Un periodo en el que puede contagiar a muchas personas.
      Es peor que el Covid-19

      What is concerning is the onslaught of viruses we never had before and unapproved Vaccines miraculously available as soon as the Latest designer virus is created.
      So why are we the people paying billions to big- bloated CDC-NIH & WHO when they don’t do a damn thing to stop any viruses from spreading but, rather create hysteria & ineffective, unsafe vaccines.

      WHO not to be trusted. They lied to everyone about CORONAVIRUS for which they were guilty of the spread thereof. This is just another reason to try and destroy the world’s economy. Funny how all of it comes out of China.

      To date, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed more than 3,300 cases of monkeypox in 42 countries where the virus hasn’t been typically seen. More than 80% of cases are in Europe. Meanwhile, Africa has already seen more than 1,400 cases this year, including 62 deaths.
