I'm excited for the covid - monkey pox crossover episode. This season of What The Fark Is Going On has been thrilling!

Well, that does it.No more swimming in the sewer.

Time for Biden to declare martial law and do a full on hard core military enforced lockdown of SF.  2 months hard core lock down to end the threat.  And the CDC needs to have a full on hard core media blitz kink shaming all the ultra horney maga that keep spreading pandemics.  If you cant go two months without farking sombody with pox sores, you need to turn yourself into the military so they can put you in a quarantine camp.

Do the same with any city that has a monkey pox outbreak.  If you dont have 2 months of food stored, too farking bad.  You didnt kink shame the poxophiles.

A few guys escaped from Alcatraz 80 years ago and were never found. Now there's monkeypox in the bay.

Coincidence? I don't think so.

SF is one of the few American cities whose storm drains and wastewater systems are tied together. I think Boston is another.

Heavy rains flood the streets of Bayview with poopoo.

FTFA: 'Health officials have said risk of monkeypox to the general public is currently low unless they engage in higher-risk behaviors, such as having sex with multiple sex partners, which can increase a person's risk of becoming infected.'

When did we start testing waste water for viruses? First time I remember seeing this was with Covid. Has this always been a thing, or what?

It's being spread by close contact, not gay sex. Clinics that treat gays have been the only places testing for it - not only gay people engaging in sodomy are the only ones who are catching it.

Monkeypox is suspected to now have evolved to be airborne spread.

The difference is with AIDS you actually had to have sex/directly swap body fluids.  As far as I understand monkeypox, you could get it from some of those more common scenarios used to make everyone afraid of touching gay people back in the 80s.  High five, a hug, just standing really close in a crowd and rubbing against someone, etc..

I'm sure Biden will handle the monkeypox pandemic as well as he did COVID.

Looks like the government gets to crack open the vault and give everyone smallpox vaccinations. Monkeypox is a close relative to smallpox and the existing attenuated virus vaccine for smallpox has 85% efficacy against monkeypox. At least there is an easy solution readily available.

It's not that uncommon.

"CSSs serve approximately 860 communities with a total population of about 40 million people. Most communities with CSOs are located in the Northeast and Great Lakes regions, particularly in Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Although large cities like New York, Philadelphia, and Atlanta have CSSs, most communities with CSO problems have fewer than 10,000 people."

Monkeypox is not a gay people disease. Clinics that offer health services to the gay community are just the only ones testing for it so far.

It's the usual bigoted scumbags pushing the "it's a gay disease" narrative, don't feed into it. It's a virus, it doesn't give a shiat who you fark. It's not just spread through sexual contact, it's spread through any contact and may possibly be airborne now as well.

marleymaniac: Well, it's from sticking weens in poo, so not surprised


It's from close contact. ANY CLOSE CONTACT. Everyone who contributes to this being called "a gay disease" is basically trying to guarantee that proper measures to stop its spread will not be taken, whether or not they realize it.
 
2022-06-30 2:51:57 PM  
For context, they really should publish the numbers for other viral disease loads in SF wastewater

Like gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis B a and C

misanthropicsob: I'm sure Biden will handle the monkeypox pandemic as well as he did COVID.


I was about to chime in with, "that actually was Trump", but upon further reflection......... nah.

Trump is primarily responsible, he was in charge for the first year of the pandemic and didn't just botch our response - he willfully, intentionally sabotaged it and got many people killed. And also made it very difficult, if not impossible for Biden to address it.

But Biden still has disappointed me immensely with his response. He's done little to nothing to set things right from where his predecessor left off, and done little but ask the airline CEO's what the CDC should do next. It's a goddamned travesty.

If he's the nominee in 2024 I'll vote for him - the alternative is utterly unthinkable - but I don't have to like it and as of now he's lost my vote for the primary.

Not everything is in the news

Every wastewater treatment plant has to do water quality testing by law. Apparently some new an interesting tests are becoming available and pretty much any plant can test for all kinds of things like drug use or viruses if they want to spend some money to pay for testing.

/they can even tell what kinds of medication people in an area are taking

//Good thing nobody cares about privacy anymore. Or this might be an issue.

I read someone on twitter remarking about how the Soviets wargamed biological agents, and they speculated that MPX is just a dry run for weaponized smallpox. We are obviously screwing up monkeypox, so our smallpox defense is clearly shot. Most cases are being missed even with the characteristic pocks and lymph swelling, there's no way we'll react in time to smallpox on the loose.

If you wanted to cause as much society disruption as possible, you could let the West fail at MPX over the next few months, give up, encounter smallpox alongside, and then everyone blames the gays. Then you get this massive, violent rift between the left and right, with a minority population being scapegoated in the middle. I think it's more likely than not, and that Russia has to move forward with that plan. If they don't, then everyone in the West gets immunized to smallpox via monkeypox and then the smallpox is mostly useless.

I think the writing will start being written on the wall when this spills over to kids regullarly. "Them damn queers is touchin' muh kids! Only I can do that!" It really doesn't help that governments are hyper-focused on gays. Then you'll get all sorts of propaganda about how Biden protected his homo-ies with the monkeypox vaccine early on while everyone else was left out to dry. Even though they won't take the vaccines anyway.
