WHO (World Health Organization), this bastion of ineptness, corruption, incompetence, now gone full WOKE; renaming monkeypox out of stigmatization; what idiots at WHO; it's an African virus, period!
These eff in morons at WHO, why not tell those infected that the foci is in the gay & bisexual community & call on them to stop gay sex for 2-3 weeks? Instead woke on changing the name?
What a woke bunch of stupid people!!!! When you thought WHO could not be more irrelevant and inane and vacuous.
OK, let me break it down for you. Based on all we know today, monkeypox is endemic to Africa, emerged from Africa, most nations infected and endemic are in Africa you blockheads at WHO, you ding dongs, you egg heads, you corrupted, donor money stealing thieves, you fools! It is an African virus no matter what you say at WHO. And it has leached out of Africa but it came from the foci, Africa. We are still unsure about the natural reservoir but we are pretty sure its an animal (s) in Africa. Also, the name ‘monkeypox’ does not mean the reservoir is in monkeys or it emerged from monkeys. As far as we know today, the initial outbreaks were in monkeys who could have gotten it from other sources.
It’s an African virus and get used to that WHO.
Rift valley fever: The virus was first identified in 1931 during an investigation into an epidemic among sheep on a farm in the Rift Valley of Kenya.
Ebola virus: EVD first appeared in 1976 in 2 simultaneous outbreaks, one in what is now Nzara, South Sudan, and the other in Yambuku, DRC. The latter occurred in a village near the Ebola River, from which the disease takes its name.
Marburg virus: Two large outbreaks that occurred simultaneously in Marburg and Frankfurt in Germany, and in Belgrade, Serbia, in 1967, led to the initial recognition of the disease. The outbreak was associated with laboratory work using African green monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) imported from Uganda. Subsequently, outbreaks and sporadic cases have been reported in Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, South Africa (in a person with recent travel history to Zimbabwe) and Uganda. In 2008, two independent cases were reported in travellers who had visited a cave inhabited by Rousettus bat colonies in Uganda.
These three well known viruses above have origins in Africa. Do you idiots at WHO wish to rename these too? Or is it the gay sex part (physical contact) that is of concern for monkeypox, at least this outbreak? You are doing a disservice to those infected by not coming straight to them and helping tamp down transmission, while playing politics and wokeness with words. You hurt people with your bull sh*t. And the reason why no major photos exist of the European cases that EMERGED due to initial spread out of Africa into Europe, is because, drum roll please, the sequela is very mild and no mortality etc. So at present, and hopefully it stays this way, there are not any or many photos outside of Africa that show the bumps and pustules etc. Thank God for that. But stop the bull sh*t WHO and do your job.
Why don’t you stupid woke idiots at WHO focus on proper monkeypox PSAs to the infected sub-group (gay and bisexual males), inform them on symptoms to look for e.g. lesions, warts, pustules on penis and/or anus etc., inform them on mitigation steps to control transmission, ask them to stop gay sex and physical contact for 2-3 weeks to one month to get this tamped down, adopt acute contact tracing etc. and stop your bull sh*t about mass vaccination and masks and lockdowns and the like with CDC and NIH and that other set of idiots.
“In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing. The most obvious manifestation of this is the use of photos of African patients to depict the pox lesions in mainstream media in the global north. Recently, Foreign Press Association, Africa issued a statement urging the global media to stop using images of African people to highlight the outbreak in Europe.”
CDC background on monkeypox (see link):
“Monkeypox was first discovered in 1958 when two outbreaks of a pox-like disease occurred in colonies of monkeys kept for research, hence the name ‘monkeypox.’ The first human case of monkeypox was recorded in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) during a period of intensified effort to eliminate smallpox. Since then, monkeypox has been reported in people in several other central and western African countries: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Liberia, Nigeria, Republic of the Congo, and Sierra Leone. The majority of infections are in Democratic Republic of the Congo.”
