Quote from: K_Dubb on July 26, 2022, 10:57:35 AMNobody is going to stop bonking, compared with HIV which has been circulating at high levels out there for what forty years or so now this is just a particularly unpleasant rash and joins the whole host of nasty things you can get. There are lines for the vaccine but they don't have much of it and are giving it to people already exposed while fighting off the usual hypochondriacs and helicopter moms dragging their kids in because they might pick it up at drag queen story time.
QuoteSAN FRANCISCO — Amid a burgeoning monkeypox outbreak that has so far disproportionately affected gay and bisexual men, Bay Area public health officials and organizers of one of the region's most beloved LGBTQ events are walking a difficult line between preventing the spread of the virus, while fighting the stigma of the virus as a disease limited to the LGBTQ community.Despite San Francisco officials' declaration of a public health emergency over the monkeypox virus, organizers of Dore Alley — a live-out-loud leather and fetish festival that's been a favorite among LGBTQ communities in the Bay Area since the 1980s — said Friday they intend to hold the festival this weekend.The San Francisco event, which is expected to draw 5,000 people, comes amid deep anxieties across the LGBTQ community over the outbreak, which has proliferated amid a shortage of vaccines. Confronting a disease that has primarily affected men who have sex with men, many in the LGBTQ community fear a replay of the failures of the AIDS/HIV crisis. The confluence of issues has raised difficult questions for Dore Alley organizers, public health officials and LGBTQ advocates, even as they press ahead with the festival.

Quote from: albrecht on August 08, 2022, 05:12:34 PMLest I offend but the MonkeyPox has weird vibe like HIV/AIDs. Even back then there was push back to not curtail obvious dangerous lifestyle choices but, then same demographic claimed discrimination from politicians and society. Meanwhile protests and desires to keep 'bath houses' open and bizarre requests for the right to donate blood. And there, ignoring some theories considered conspiracy, the 'monkey connection' again is officially raised. What the heck are people doing in the Dark Continent, and I don't mean the 'bush meat,' although, maybe related. Some weird stuff, and I'm not blaming Wouter or the commies on this one. But idk?
QuoteIn some ways, the virus is acting differently than it has in the past. For decades, researchers in West and Central Africa, where the virus is endemic, have observed that outbreaks there tend to be self-limiting. A single case or small cluster would pop up occasionally, caused by hunting and handling infected animals or being bitten by one, but those spillover events rarely kicked off long chains of transmission within communities.
QuoteMonkeypox has a thing for skin. Animal studies have shown that the virus has a preference for finding its way to skin and oral tissues, even when it's injected into an animal's muscles or sprayed into its nasal passages. Once there, it sets up shop, making lots of copies of itself, and these viral factories become the sites of lesions.
QuoteThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave emergency use authorization to split one dose of the monkeypox vaccine into five doses. The change means providers can now give the shot in a shallower location right under the skin instead of deeper in the arm. According to the White House monkeypox response team, the different shot location and smaller dose was found to generate a similar immune response.
Quote from: K_Dubb on August 11, 2022, 10:05:41 AMThe initial transmission from monkeys is still being blamed on eating them or getting bittenBut, given the "prolonged skin-to-skin contact" required, the word "handling" is doing a lot of heavy lifting here.They are fucking the monke. Then, flying straight to the fleshpots of Gran Canaria, from what it sounds like.https://www.statnews.com/2022/08/10/what-scientists-know-and-dont-know-about-how-monkeypox-spreads/

Quote from: K_Dubb on August 13, 2022, 11:15:00 AMThe latest is people are driving to Canada to get the vaccine no questions asked in Vancouver (though BC now "strongly discourages" the practice) because the criteria even with the five-split doses mean thanks to concerns with equity you basically have to be a manwhore or homeless meth user to get it here.You have to be exposed or gay AND have one of the following:Sex with more than ten people in three monthsSyphilis or gonorrhea in the past yearMeth use in the past monthBathhouse or sex club in the past three monthsHomeless and had any sex at all in the past three months
Quote from: albrecht on August 13, 2022, 11:50:56 AMMany of these activities would seem to be 'public health emergencies' (or at least private emergencies) even without this latest Monkey-derived VD/Pox situation.
