Great covid-19, avian flu now monkeypox, 2022 is not going too well for infectious diseases.


"Two people diagnosed with monkeypox in London, health officials confirm

It comes after a person who had recently travelled to Nigeria tested positive for the disease after arriving in England. Health officials say they are now investigating where the two latest cases picked up the infection."

Let's hope it will just be a small spread and not spread all over the world

We have a vaccine for smallpox so I see a good chance one for this new disease will come about over time.

Just saw this on Yahoo.com

'A case of monkeypox has been confirmed in a man in Massachusetts.

The man is hospitalized and in good condition, and his case "poses no risk to the public," according to state officials.

The case comes on the heels of reported monkeypox clusters in the UK, Portugal, and Spain.'

It can not be as hard as the covid-19 was to come up with a vaccine , it seems to be similar to smallpox

Apparently we already have a vaccine for monkeypox. Its the smallpox vaccine. Trouble is that there's not much smallpox vaccine about seeing as smallpox was eradicated back in the late 70s

Thankfully its not airborne so its got almost no chance of becoming a pandemic like covid.
