    First Mandatory Quarantines for Monkeypox as White House Warns of More Cases

    Belgium has become the first country in the world to introduce a mandatory 21-day monkeypox quarantine for those who contract the virus after several cases were found, with a White House official warning Sunday that more U.S. cases are likely.

    Those who contract the virus will have to self-isolate, confirmed Belgian health authorities to news outlets. Individuals who have had close contact with monkeypox cases aren’t required to self-isolate but should remain vigilant if they have been in contact with vulnerable people, officials said.

    ...

    Monkeypox, which originates in Africa, is a virus related to smallpox and symptoms include a bumpy rash, a fever, sore muscles, and a headache. It’s less deadly than smallpox, and health officials have said that its mortality rate is around 4 percent. Experts, however, have expressed concerns about monkeypox’s spread beyond Africa in recent days.

    OH! False alarm, guys. I should have read to the end.

    Officials in Belgium and the United Kingdom said that it appears a significant portion of the virus’s transmission is among homosexual males. In statements to local media, Belgian officials said that “we are observing transmissions among men who have sex with men,” and it is a development “that we must study properly to better understand the dynamics.”
    Any policy, whether true or ostensible, will be seen as homophobic. Freedom will reign.

    There's already a 2 dose vaccine for it, licensed by the FDA in 2019. How convenient lol.

    If you saw what happened to my beloved sister, how they brain damaged a sweet & lovely normal 4 year old into a vegetative state, you would NEVER trust the freaking government to vaccinate your children… or you for that matter!

    As Pink Floyd once popularized in a historic song, All in all your just another brick in the wall.

    Interesting info in post 3 of just info. This lady does interesting research on computer. Is she always correct? No, but she does a pretty good job of who's, who's, where, where, when, when with things.
