Non-Social in a Socially Networked World

0.0002% of the world has Monkeypox… time to PANIC!!!

When will we stop listening to the multinational organization that cried emergency? 16,000 people are estimated to be infected with the dreaded Monkeypox. Even if most of the people infected weren’t gay men the percentage of the world population with the virus is less than miniscule. The fact that most of the infections are in gay men make it even less likely you’re at any risk. It’s ridiculous.

There has been only 5 deaths worldwide since the beginning of the year. 5 FUCKING DEATHS!! But hey everything is a fucking emergency now.

Monkeypox—rarely detected outside Africa before now—has in recent weeks spread to thousands of people across dozens of countries, mainly among men who have sex with men. No deaths have been reported among the cases outside of Africa, but three people have died in Nigeria and two in the Central African Republic since the start of the year. Epidemiologists say the virus, which requires close contact to spread, is likely exploiting close-knit social and sexual networks among men who have sex with men.

WHO Declares Monkeypox a Global Health Emergency – WSJ

Just remember the COVID panic started the same way. We knew from February or March 2020 the people at risk from COVID-19 were the elderly, the obese, and those with Type-2 Diabetes. The rest of the world population was relatively safe with a recovery percentage of over 98%. If we practiced proper risk assessment we would never have locked the world down and forced vaccinations on people.

Don’t let this happen with Monkeypox! Enough already.
