Natalie’s Commentary: Monkeypox originates in Africa. It 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 this strain has a mortality rate is around 1 percent. Experts, however, have expressed concerns about monkeypox’s spread beyond Africa in recent days.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said there were 92 confirmed cases in 12 different countries, with more under investigation. So far, cases have been confirmed in the United Kingdom, Italy, Sweden, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, the United States, Australia, and Canada.
Dr. Susan Hopkins, one of the top medical advisers to the UK Health Security Agency said, “It appears a significant portion of the virus’s transmission is among homosexual males. We are observing transmissions among men who have sex with men. It is a development that we must study properly to better understand the dynamics.”
Higher cases of monkeypox could be attributed to much lower immune systems, after 66% of the world population, 5.3 billion people have been fully jabbed and at least boosted once. It has now been proven and is being exposed that COVID-19 shots/jabs drastically lower the immune system of the human body in addition to causing dangerous adverse events worsening a person’s health and limiting their once healthy lifestyles.
Salt Lake’s health agency said, “Currently, there is no proven, safe treatment for monkeypox, though the limited evidence available indicates that smallpox treatments may be useful. Most people recover with no treatment.”
Why did Biden and his administration announce they had placed a $119 million dollar order for vaccines after a single case of Monkeypox reported in the US. What exactly are these vaccines for? Something is not adding up correctly once again with this administration.
Considering that Biden continually lies about everything from his personal life to running this country ineffectively, it is really more for the American people to see how far this man will go to continue to extend quarantines and maybe even shutdowns. With all the disturbing evidence of how this country is being run so poorly under him and his administration, one would ask, when is Congress going to start impeachment proceedings? The American people should have to not continually suffer and even go down in history for the crime and corruption of a terrible illegitimate President. ~ Natalie
More Monkeypox Cases Suspected in Fourth US State

The Salt Lake County Health Departmentsaid two adults in a household located in the country are suspected to have monkeypox based on preliminary testing, according to a news release.
The two individuals traveled to an area in Europe that is “currently experiencing monkeypox cases” in recent days and became symptomatic of the rare virus afterward, said officials.
“Both individuals are in isolation and do not present a risk to the public,” health authorities said in the release. “They are experiencing mild illness and are expected to recover fully.”
Later on Monday, authorities with the World Health Organization (WHO) said that two events in Europe are likely responsible for the spread of the virus, which is generally relegated to several African nations. They suggested that sexual contact is how the monkeypox outbreak is spreading—namely through homosexual men.
“We’ve seen a few cases in Europe over the last five years, just in travelers, but this is the first time we’re seeing cases across many countries at the same time in people who have not traveled to the endemic regions in Africa,” Dr. Rosamund Lewis, who runs WHO’s smallpox research, said Monday.
On Sunday, officials in Florida said a possible monkeypox case is being investigated. Two cases have been confirmed in New York City and Massachusetts.
“Utah’s public health system has not identified any exposure risk to the public due to these probable cases. Exposure concern is limited to specifically identified people who had direct, close contact with the infected individuals during their infectious period,” said the news release from Salt Lake County. It added that the Utah Department of Health and Human Services is now contacting people who had close contact with the two individuals who may be infected.
Symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, exhaustion, as well as swollen lymph nodes. Infected people can develop a rash, often beginning on the face before spreading to other parts of the body, turning into lesions known as “pox” that eventually turn into scabs and fall off after several weeks.
“Currently, there is no proven, safe treatment for monkeypox, though the limited evidence available indicates that smallpox treatments may be useful. Most people recover with no treatment,” said Salt Lake’s health agency.
Earlier Monday, while speaking to reporters in Japan, President Joe Biden said it’s unlikely that U.S. officials will have to implement strict quarantine protocols to deal with the outbreak.
