*…By the numbers: San Francisco's 305 monkeypox cases as of Friday, account for nearly 40% of known cases in California.

Over 97% of those who have tested positive in SF identified as male, and over 85% identified as gay or bisexual. Of those who tested positive, 12% declined to provide sexual orientation information.
Nearly 27% identified as Latino — almost double the percentage of the city's overall Latino population. Public health officials said they are working with Latino community groups to disseminate information on resources…*

HIV, now Monkey Pox courtesy of homosesexual activities. I see no reason why those of us who are lambasted and called bigots because we excercise our right to object to such behaviour should care. Homosexuals have the legal right to do as they please these days. They have to deal with the consequences.

"Anyone can get monkeypox, but in the latest outbreak, the virus is predominantly spreading among gay and bisexual men. Officials noted Monday that most of the people affected reported some level of sexual activity."

"That doesn't mean the virus is sexually transmitted, but officials say it shows that prolonged skin-to-skin contact is one of the major ways monkeypox is now spreading."

"As of Monday evening, data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows 1,972 probable or confirmed monkeypox cases in the US."

CNN: the equivalent of the ABC, the Guardian and all the other screwball Marxist propaganda machines. A Monkey Pox on all their houses.

The first case of Monkeypox in the current outbreak
was reported to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in May.
The person had recently returned to the UK from Nigeria.

Since then further cases have been reported in over a
dozen countries including - Israel, the US, Canada, and
Australia.

The most recent cases did not have travel links to
the countries where the disease is epidemic. Which raises
the possibility that this disease may have been spreading
silently for some time in the population before it was
detected.

The disease has now attracted a morbid interest in the
media and from the public. It's the fear of the "unknown"
the "exotic" nature and the fear of contagion that
can generate a disproportionate fear in the population.

Also this "germ panic" is probably heightened by the
off-putting visible disfigurements caused by the infection.
Also misleading information in the media and especially
in social media can further fuel public anxiety.

We need to learn lessons from the HIV/AIDS epidemic and
try to avoid stigmatising people.

The LGBTQI have suffered tremendously over the years with the
stigma attached to infectious diseases. We need to avoid
doing it again.

‘…the countries where the disease is epidemic…”

The word is “endemic”.
