US declares state of emergency over monkeypox

By Ben Kesslen
August 4, 2022

The Biden administration declared a health emergency over the growing monkeypox outbreak Thursday.

The declaration allows the federal government to amp up its response to the virus without the usual regulatory barriers.

“I want to make an announcement today that I will be declaring a public health emergency,” Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a call with reporters Thursday about the monkeypox outbreak.

“We’re prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus.”

“We urge every American to take monkeypox seriously and to take responsibility and help us tackle this virus,” he continued.

May as well do it for syphilis, too, then.
Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

Don't give Fauci and his CDC buddies any ideas. Obviously by this, they do not understand jokes.

I will guarantee there are a thousand times more cases of syphilis or mononucleosis right now at this very moment. But 'real' illnesses do not matter unless they have a scary name and can be exploited to steal elections.

Everyone predicted and knew they would do this even two years ago. We were all just waiting for it.

From the article:

Quote
The country has reported more than 6,600 cases of the virus, which cause fever, aches, and bumps or sores on the body.

6,600 cases in a country of an estimated 335,000,000 people.  That's an occurrence of 0.00197%, if I'm doing the math right.

Monkeypox

  • Monkeypox is spread by close contact and exposure to an infected person's respiratory droplets, skin lesions or other bodily fluids.
  • Monkeypox symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, fever, and a rash that may initially be mistaken for chickenpox or a sexually transmitted disease if in the genital or anal region.
  • The infection can be fatal, but it most often clears up on its own.
  • Monkeypox may be most severe in young children.
  • Vaccines can prevent monkeypox, but widespread vaccination is not likely to be necessary because cases are rare outside of outbreaks.
  • The infection is spreading, but because transmission requires close personal contact, a pandemic such as the one caused by SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) is not expected.

An occurrence of 0.002% and from what I know, it has a fatality rate of 0.0%. You know what that means ...,
IT'S AN EMERGENCY!! LOCK DOWNS!! MASKS!! CALL OUT THE NATIONAL GUARD!!!

Exactly.  And the consequences aren’t the just desserts of acting irresponsibly but society’s fault for not taking care of the poor little bleep.

OMG! ButtBangers refusing to practice safe sex or abstain from safe sex acts while those at risk like themselves get vaccinated constitutes a national emergency? Shades of Jocelyn Elders and her best and brightest bullshit.
