Disfiguring??? You're gonna make me watch that video with pics that I don't want to see...
Well, you can have it playing in the background that's what I did. lol:drunk:. But to sum it up, he had Dr. Alexea M. Gaffney-Adams, an infectious disease specialist, speak on the subject. She was very insightful. Stated that even though it is primarily in the LBGQT community don't expect it to stay there because you can get it from hard surfaces and clothes. Unfortunately, we know people who are infected will not stay home. Plus the lady who was infected mentioned on her TikTok she works at a gas station and that's how she got it. So we need to be vigilant about washing our hands. She did mention depending on where it presents it can cause additional complications i.e. if it is close to your eye it could be damaging and those who have had it near the rectum experience inflammation and loss of appetite.

I just have to resolve to stay home and wear a mask/gloves again because I do not... DO NOT.. want that.

I am beginning to think that is is Armageddon and we just don't recognize it.

This has got to be the end of times. :nono: What in the world?
So the rapture happened and we missed it? I guess none of my friends made the cut either. :lol:

I get where you're coming from and shouldn't find this funny but I'm laughing just the same. Can't tell anymore if I should laugh or cry.

Girl I am not that religious and don't know the order of these things :lol:
But I thought when the end of times starts, it begins with diseases, wars, etc. Then the chosen ones go to heaven.
Or does rapture happen first and all the chosen ones go to heaven and those remain get wiped out with diseases and wars?

Whatever this is, it is draining and no end is in sight. :nono:

That is CRAZY! And this is happening to a white girl with "blonde" hair. Lord Jesus protect our people. We have suffered enough as it is with COVID. I don't understand how doctors are not at least up to snuff on this disease. The CDC should have sent out an email, letter, text message, carrier pigeon or something to alert all medical providers of the signs and symptoms of monkey pox, and who to contact or where to go to get tested for it. Like come on, have we learned nothing from COVID. Since COVID, I would think CDC would have updated their emergency procedures when outbreaks like this happen. I can't with the US right now.

Ladies - does this also mean we have to start bringing our own bed sheets, towels and washcloths wherever we travel?? I know many hotels do not thoroughly wash those hotel sheets, especially those comforters. I am traveling in a few weeks and now realized this. Sigh.

They made the fatal mistake by saying its more prevalent amongst gay men, when in fact everyone is at risk of getting this disease. Its more easily transmittable than COVID. In my state I don't even qualify to get vaxxed because I'm not a gay man. This is going to spread like wildfire.

We knew this was going to happen a few months back. I said they needed to hurry and get this under control because nothing was going to stop people from celebrating Pride. My state declared a public health emergency and people are still holding events like the governor didn’t say anything, and now down state, a daycare worker is spreading that mess. Same regions of IL that are super Red and don’t like following guidelines and rules. They fought like heck to not wear masks in the schools. And yes start taking your own bed sheets and towels.

It’s not more easily transmissible. The newest Omicron variants have an R(0) of 18. So far monkepox has an R(0) of .87-1.25.

I’m not sure what to make of this article. Previous information on monkeypox in West Africa indicated that it was not sexually transmitted, but was spread by close contact (such as in the household), with 40% of the cases being women largely because women are the caretakers for the sick. But this doctor says that the most recent variant spreading in West Africa does seem to be sexually transmitted, and was primarily affecting men.

i think after reading these posts.. Do you think they might do a mini shut down ..to stop the spread.. or shut downs in towns that have outbreak
If they did do a mini shut down.. I think people might easily agree with this, cause of the discomfort of getting it.

Good discussion and Roland is right this is depressing.

I heard her say everything for people to do except to keep your immune system boosted.
They will NEVER talk about wht is KEY (Keeping the immune system boosted NEVER)
The healthcare system makes money on us being sick. The End.

That said, I have a UV disinfecting bag that I bought early in the pandemic -- I use it to disinfect my phone at least once a day. Sometimes my glasses (1 a week.) I see cashiers are all wearing gloves now.... so sad for them....

Idk if people will ever be ok with shutdowns. With covid no one cared when it was old people and black people. With monkey pox, it's still considered a gay man's problem so I imagine the response would be the same. It may change later but then it might be too late.
