Following hard on the heels of Covid, we are now being bombarded with horrific images of a new smallpox-like virus. Monkeypox, as it is known, produces smallpox-like skin lesions.
During the 18th century smallpox killed an estimated 400,000 Europeans each year. Due to mass vaccination, smallpox was declared eradicated in 1980. Now, because of globalism, mass immigration and promiscuous homosexuals, the pox is back.
Monkeypox has not previously been described as a sexually transmitted infection, but it can be passed on by direct contact during sex. And the most recent UK cases are in gay or bisexual men which has prompted the UK Health Security Agency to encourage men who have sex with men to be aware of any unusual rashes or lesions.
Some staff in sexual health clinics have already received a smallpox vaccine to help protect them against monkeypox – a smallpox jab offers some good protection since the two viruses are quite similar.
Flu-like symptoms are common initially, ranging from fever and headache to shortness of breath. One to 10 days later, a rash can appear on the extremities, head or torso that eventually turns into blisters filled with pus. Overall, symptoms usually last for two to four weeks, while skin lesions usually scab over in 14 to 21 days.
Monkeypox virus is transmitted from one person to another by close contact with lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials such as bedding. The incubation period of monkeypox is usually from 6 to 13 days but can range from 5 to 21 days.
The name “monkeypox” comes from the first documented cases of the illness in animals in 1958, when two outbreaks occurred in monkeys kept for research. However, the virus did not jump from monkeys to humans, nor are monkeys major carriers of the disease.
Since the first reported human case, monkeypox has been found in several other central and western African countries, with the majority of infections in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Cases outside of Africa have been linked to international travel and the promiscuous behaviour of homosexuals. Just as with the HIV epidemic, the virus seems to originate from perverts having sex with animals.
While monkeypox is rare and usually non-fatal, one version of the disease kills around 10% of infected people. The form of the virus currently circulating is thought to be milder, with a fatality rate of less than 1%. The BBC website reported that the disease can be more severe, especially in young children, pregnant women, and people who have weakened immune systems.
Sir Peter Horby, director of the Pandemic Sciences Institute at Oxford University, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that “it is an unusual situation where we seem to have had the virus introduced but now ongoing transmission within certain communities”.
