Rare case of monkeypox confirmed in England, UK Health Security Agency says
The patient, who is believed to have contracted the infection on a trip to Nigeria, is being treated at an specialist unit in London. Though monkeypox can be spread through close contact, there is a very low risk of transmission to the public.

A rare case of monkeypox has been confirmed in England, health officials have said.
The viral infection usually causes mild illness and most people recover within a few weeks and is similar to human smallpox.

Initial symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache and exhaustion.
However, severe illness can occur in some individuals.
The patient found with monkeypox recently travelled to the UK from Nigeria, where they are believed to have contracted the infection.

The person is receiving care at the expert infectious disease unit at the Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust in London.
According to the NHS, monkeypox is mainly spread by wild animals in parts of west or central Africa and the risk of catching it in the UK is very low.

Two people have been diagnosed with monkeypox in London. The pair live together in the same household and are not linked to the previous confirmed case in England which was announced on May 7, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said.

Of the latest two cases, one person is receiving care at the expert infectious disease unit at St Mary's Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London. The other person is isolating and does not currently require hospital treatment, the UKHSA said.

Dr Colin Brown, director of clinical and emerging infections at the UKHSA, said: "We have confirmed two new monkeypox cases in England that are not linked to the case announced on May 7. While investigations remain ongoing to determine the source of infection, it is important to emphasise it does not spread easily between people and requires close personal contact with an infected symptomatic person. The overall risk to the general public remains very low.

To continue….the following you tube is a “mock documentary” on how smallpox outbreak starts and is handled. Run time approximately 1:29:50. Watching is highly….recommended

Huge tourist attraction in the UK. Not just the gay crowd either. See that crowd?

Interesting, they said the reason the smallpox spread so easily was because HIV was taking root in those countries.
Covid vaccines are overriding immune systems. Make the connections.


Plus it’s predicted in the word that mankind will suffer from sores on their bodies.

Very good analysis.
Many forms of contact spreads it. Think about the bar scene, that plane, people traveling back home to their families.
The Incubation time.

All U.S. International airports will be nodes.

Masking, eye protection, gloves, distancing.

Do it before they tell you to. WHO is already coordinating in UK. May 22, WHO will be all up in U.S. bidness.
Thanks, Helen. This doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy. I think it is their second hammer, and this is much more terrifying to face that some kind of flu. I always wondered what it would look like to change the world into something controlled by one evil man. It is not pleasant to be living the reality.

We thought the lockdowns for covid were bad. Prepare for much worse.

There is not a specific known and effective treatment for monkeypox but there is a vaccine. In fact, the first vaccine we used - for smallpox - works against monkeypox. It's thought to be at least 85% effective Monkeypox and Smallpox Vaccine Guidance | Monkeypox | Poxvirus | CDC

The smallpox vaccine should be given by 4 days after exposure (so anyone who was nearby the person diagnosed, including healthcare workers). If the vaccine is given between 4 and 14 days it can reduce the symptoms but not entirely prevent you from getting sick.

I don't think it is coincidence that there is suddenly a new, terrifying disease, and they already have a vaccine, and they are handing over US health control to the World Health Organization. Forced vaccinations.

I’ve never stopped, using protocols!
Remember when we discussed how odd it was….that just all of a sudden..,poof!…no more restrictions, no more mask mandates….
All at the same time :cool:….magically.

This doesn't look like the monkeypox pictures in medical literature. Posted just in case it turns out to be a new variant.

Masks, eye protection, gloves, sanitizer, distancing.

Incubation period for monkeypox is 2 to 21 days, so it's likely here already. In the UK, it looks like syphilis rash. The sexually transmitted disease clinics there may have missed cases already. Same here, I guess.

This is getting "interesting" and not in a good way - scientists for years have been concerned that a new "pox" might jump to humans and monkey pox was always the most likely to do so. Small Pox only affected humans which is the main reason (per-Nightwolf) it could be wiped out at least in the wild (labs or even isolated caves might be another story).

The only "good" thing I can see, is that so far while no one wants to say much, these seem to be somewhat hard to catch and usually need sexual or other close physical contacts for transmission to occur. But it is early days and that may not be the full story.

Supposedly several of the United Kingdom cases are "unrelated" meaning that as far as anyone knows X did not touch (or have sex with Y, in fact they might be miles apart and never met. In some ways, that is a lot more worrying than another sexually (or mostly sexually) transmitted disease that requires really close physical intimacy.

We'll see how soon they "find" a US case or 3.

My hair ain't even WARM yet. BUT, the Shelter In Place Fund purse is lookin pretty damn moth-eaten about now.
It’s here.
Six cases of suspected pox now, being monitored, for American travelers who were on that first plane

Most alarming line:
But officials warn some cases have no links to travel suggesting local spread
McQuiston warned the UK's cases could well be just the tip of the iceberg.​
'You have two clusters that have no link to travel or to other people who are known to be associated with a recognized outbreak,' she said.​
'It suggests that there are unknown chains of transmission happening.​
'If there appears to be unknown chains of transmission, it just puts us on alert to be thinking: Could this be spreading outside the U.K.?'​

I've had the smallpox vaccine twice that I know of. The last time I got it as a teen I had the worst reaction the medic at the AFB had ever seen. He said not to get another. My arm swelled, got red and was painful. The pox mark itself was unremarkable and there is no scarring.

Any advice from the medical people on the board? Anyone else had this reaction? Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Edited to add: I would not trust the current doctor I have with any advice regarding vaccines. And it takes months to get another, if I could. They would most likely be new residents with no experience, which I would also not trust.
