Monkeypox
Jul 9th, 2022 at 10:44am
 
If this exponential trend of growth continues we will surpass 100000 cases worldwide late August. Then I expect the global panic will kick in. How are you preparing?†

  Same as always.  The house is well stocked with food and ammo, I still mask when I go to a store or office, and I socially distance. I'll get  vaccinations when available and hope for the best.  What else can we do?

Well this one's pretty simple.
1) don't shag any monkeys
2) don't have sex with people with open sores.

It's not exactly wildly contagious, you generally have to be in physical contact with pus or other bodily fluids from someone who's already got it.

So yeah, not stressing about this one.

Problem : it seems that humanity descended from the monkey. Isn't it dangerous ?

You can't get it from casual contact, like people in the streets. Only long term contact with an infected person will do it.
