Monkeypox is a rare viral infection from which most people recover in a few weeks, according to the NHS.

Reality is that 10% can die, so nice downplay.

Public Health England said monkeypox does not spread easily

It can spread via respiratory droplets, so there's that.  But I can see how not wanting to trigger another epidemic concern might be a very high priority for many.

I think, ook, this Monkey Pox, ook ook, is a hoax cooked up, ook ook, by the liberal media. Ook. Now if you'll excuse me, ook ook, I need to poop in my hand and throw it at someone, ook ook ook.

So how would we be able to contrast the symptoms w/ normal Scottish behavior?

Pretty sure it can spread via contact with monkeys as well. And seeing how Toronto is awash in organ grinders, this is a concern. Especially when you don't give them a peanut, and they go mental and bite you.

Once you get over Monkey Pox, they can get their filthy hands all over you and not effect you.

Why would that be a priority higher than stopping it by informing people?

Monkeypox is one of those fun words to say, like Rubella or Walla Walla.

I would not call the librarian a monkey.

At least, I wouldn't do it and expect to live

So uh... does that nasty-ass smallpox vaccination that you got as a little kid still protect you from this?

Maybe? They treat people exposed to monkeypox by giving them the smallpox vaccine.

And in a few months, we will have Monkey Pox in America.  It will be allowed to spread unchecked because we are a civilization suffering radical decline.

I can handle chickens without getting chicken pox.  I'm basically superhuman.

It's like the monkey flu? Then we have the monkey CDC tell us to put on monkey masks, wash our monkey hands, and stay six monkey feet away.

When monkeypox met covid they gave each other a special hug.
And lived happily until all the primates were dead.

Had one last year in Texas... but must not have spread.  Which is expected, so we're all good.
