Monkeypox Likely To Be Declared A World Pandemic Next Week As Cases Rise to More Than 2317 Globally With More Alarming Data Emerging
Doctors and researchers assigned to the various task teams at the WHO are indicating monkeypox
will likely be declared a global pandemic next week when the WHO convenes an emergency meeting to review the situation as not only are caseloads rising globally but various emerging data is raising concerns among them.

In the last hour, the total number of confirmed monkeypox
cases globally has now reached 2317 with thousands of probable cases and more worryingly, a lot of cases are going undetected and also many asymptomatic individuals are unaware of their infections and are spreading the disease.
The WHO has recognized that the some infected with monkeypox
can remain asymptomatic and still spread the disease despite the U.S. CDC and certain stupid virologist from the UK, U.S. and Canada claiming that there are no asymptomatic versions of the disease or that asymptomatics cannot spread the disease. https://www.who.int/emergencies/disease-outbreak-news/item/2022-DON385
There is also emerging evidence that the monkeypox
virus can be spread via airborne aerosols despite the non-credible U.S. CDC making public statements that the monkeypox
virus cannot be spread via airborne transmission.
Past studies have also showed that the smallpox virus which belongs to the same family as the monkeypox
virus and even a close ‘cousin’…the varicella-zooster virus can spread via airborne aerosol transmissions.
A past study has also showed that the monkeypox
virus can remain active and viable for as long as 90 hours in the aerosols!
Although initially most of the monkeypox cases in the latest monkeypox outbreak outside the African continent was found to be spread via physical sexual contacts among promiscuous and irresponsible gay men and men who were bisexuals, more new cases are emerging among children, women and other individuals who are not gay (not sure about the rest of the types found in the LGBTQIA+ acronym!)
A past study has also showed that the household attack rate (i.e., rate of persons living with an infected person that develop symptoms of monkeypox
infection) was 50%!”
The new monkeypox
strains that started the surge have been found to be new strains with multiple mutations found on them despite initial claims by the WHO and Reuters that these were not mutated strains. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/monkeypox-currently-circulating-around-is-unlike-former-strains-and-contains-new-mutations-despite-some-garbage-western-experts-claiming-that-they-are
New data is emerging that these monkeypox strains are still mutating and resulting in different disease pathogenesis and unique clinical symptom manifestations, making it even harder for physicians to diagnose the infection.
Unconfirmed reports say that three individuals have so far died from monkeypox. Two were in Brazil and one in Portugal.
A number of cases are in ICU including 14 in the United Kingdom but there has been a coverup on the monkeypox
disease severity and hospitalization numbers.
There are also emerging speculations that there could be up to 16,420 cases of monkeypox
cases globally now that were not picked up due to misdiagnosis and also because existing diagnostic tests and assays could not pick up the new strains!
From data in the last hour, Spain leads with 483 confirmed cases of monkeypox, UK has 471 confirmed cases, Portugal has 242 cases, Germany 231 cases, Canada 161 cases and the United States 73 cases.
In the United States, California has 16 cases, New York 15, Illinois 8, Florida 5, Hawaii 5, Massachusetts 4, Colorado 4 and another 16 in 11 other states.
The monkeypox virus is now found in 41 countries outside the African continent.
As of press time, reports are emerging that from the list of probable cases pending test results, we should see at least a rise of between 180 to 250 new confirmed cases in the next 24 hours if not more!
Emerging data is also showing abnormalities in symptoms with not the signature pustules appearing but in some cases rashes or different forms and skin lesions are also emerging without the presence of the pustules.
Fever, chills, fatigue, muscle aches, headaches, sore throat and swollen lymph nodes are the typical initial symptoms but new cases also report of gastrointestinal issues, diarrhea and also vision problems.
Physicians are also reporting that most skin manifestations seen in the infected recently do not seem to be resolving over time even with the use of secondary drugs such as steroids or antimicrobials, raising even more concerns.
The WHO is also planning to change the name of the monkeypox
disease (possibly due to protest by the primates as it stigmatizes them!) but we have no clue as to what the new name might be, perhaps the “Gift of Euro Pride 2022” might be app as the surge first broke out in gay events in Europe celebrating Pride 2022! or the NFUK22 strain! (where N stand for Nigeria as the first case was from a returnee from Nigeria in UK, …UK for United Kingdom and F…well you know!)
