Have you seen the headlines posting “Monkeypox Spreading” in bold type print? They use urgent words to make us feel all panicky inside, as if another pandemic is headed our way.
However, if there’s one thing we can agree on when it comes to covid-19, it’s that we’ve been lied to. We’ve been lied to by the government, by big pharma, by the mainstream media, and by healthcare professionals. And undoing those lies is almost impossible as politization of the issue has created blind followers on both sides. Now, a new virus threatens to take back whatever sanity we’ve restored. But I, for one, promise to be a spreader of the truth.
Here’s what I can tell you. Monkeypox is mainly found in animals such as rodents and primates. Occasionally, it jumps to people, typically in both central and west Africa.
According to PBS, “the illness was first identified by scientists in 1958 when there were two outbreaks of a “pox-like” disease in research monkeys — thus the name monkeypox. The first known human infection was in 1970, in a 9-year-old boy in a remote part of Congo.”
The disease is related to smallpox, only far more mild. It rarely requires hospitalization to recover. So far, that’s not much to worry about. Thus, I decided to ask Google the bigger questions.
How do you know you have monkeypox?
How does someone get the virus?
More importantly, how many confirmed cases are in the US?
Currently there is 1 confirmed monkeypox case in the United States (in Massachusetts), with 4 more probably cases: 2 in Salt Lake City, and 1 each in New York City and Broward County, Florida.
Last year, the CDC reported two cases in the United States. So, a leftist would take this information and exclaim “monkeypox cases doubled this year!” However, New York City has 8.4 million people, and only one case of the virus. There are 334.8 MILLION people in the United States, and there are maybe 5 cases of monkeypox all together. For those of you who aren’t math people, that means, on average, you have one in 67 million chances of having monkeypox.
But don’t worry, we’ve been here before. This is nothing we can’t handle. First of all, we already have actual tried and true vaccines to combat monkeypox. Second, like I said, we’ve been here before!
As CNN chronicled:
- Someone puts Dr. Fauci in charge of monkeypox.
- Someone puts Kamala Harris in charge of the disease.
- Someone puts Joe Biden in a room full of monkeys.
So, the best thing we can do to avoid getting sick is to stay out of the Congo, ignore Dr. Fauci, and keep Joe Biden away from any non-suspecting animals.
