WHO asks people not to attack monkeys over monkeypox

With cases of monkeypox surging around the world, it’s not a good time to be a monkey.


The primates have, in recent days, been physically attacked – and even killed – by poisoning and stoning attacks in Brazil, according to local media reports that cite police officials.

In the last week, at least 10 animals of the marmoset and capuchin types were found displaying signs of intoxication or aggression, leading to fears that they had been poisoned, according to Brazilian news site G1. Seven of the monkeys died, while the others are under observation at a zoo in Sao Jose do Rio Preto, a municipality in the state of Sao Paulo.

The assaults have led to the World Health Organization – which declared monkeypox a global health emergency last month – issuing a reminder that despite the virus’s name, monkeys should not be blamed for its transmission.


“What people need to know very clearly is the transmission we are seeing is happening between humans to humans,” Margaret Harris, a WHO spokesperson told reporters Tuesday. “They should certainly not be attacking any animals.”

“It’s close-contact transmission. So the concern should be about where it’s transmitting in the human population and what humans can do to protect themselves from getting it and transmitting it,” Harris said, adding that the virus was seen “much more commonly in various rodents” than monkeys and that work was ongoing to consider whether the virus should be renamed.


Brazilian officials believe it is possible that the recent outbreak of the virus is driving anti-monkey sentiment and behaviour, although they also noted that the “deliberate” attacks could also be linked to animal trafficking.


Following the attacks, environmental military police officers are patrolling the forest of Rio Preto to prevent attacks on the animals, local media reported, as the National Network to Combat Wildlife Trafficking blamed the “persecution” of monkeys and attacks on “a lack of information” in Brazilian society.

Globally, there are almost 32,000 confirmed cases of monkeypox, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Cases have been reported in 89 countries, and the outbreak is prominent in Europe, where most of the infections have been recorded following an outbreak that began in the spring.

Countries that do not usually report monkeypox have documented a surge in cases, including the United States and Britain, prompting health officials to implement plans to combat the spread of infection.


Brazil, which has similarly not historically reported monkeypox before this outbreak, has registered more than 2,131 cases of infection.

Mauricio Lacerda, a virologist at the Faculty of Medicine of Rio Preto told local media that when it comes to the virus, the monkeys of Brazil do not pose a threat to locals.

“What we are seeing in Brazil, Europe and the United States is . . . people who are sick and are transmitting through close contact to other people. There is no evidence of monkeypox virus circulating in monkeys in the Brazil,” he said. “There is no need to panic.”

The name “monkeypox” emerged after researchers in Denmark used the primates to identify the virus – which is transmitted by a number of animals and not just nonhuman primates – including rats, dormice and squirrels.


Since the outbreak began in May, the majority of monkeypox cases were documented among men who are gay or bisexual, or who have sex with men.

Monkeypox is spread through close contact – including respiratory drops, bodily fluids and contaminated items such as bedding or clothing.

The virus was declared “a public health emergency” in the United States last month as health officials scrambled to provide better access to treatments, funding and vaccines amid climbing case numbers. Cases of the infection have also been confirmed among children in the United States.

“We urge every American to take monkeypox seriously and to take responsibility to help us tackle this virus,” Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said Aug. 4.

Ontario reports first confirmed female case of monkeypox.

The agency says there are 156 confirmed cases of the disease in the province as of July 11, with all but one of them being male.

The average age of the confirmed cases, which are mostly reported in Toronto, is 37.

Public health officials say most cases are among men who report intimate contact with men but say anyone can get monkeypox.

Wow….even if, like AIDS, this is blowing through the gay community first….there ARE gay women. This is kind of bizarre.

I wonder if one of the first cases was a gay dude….and thus the pattern? Assumably there’s going to be gay (Bi) men married to women (camouflage) that will spread this to women… Who will need to find satisfaction/release outside of their marriage… so this potentially can blow up outside of the current community that it’s in. I’m assuming it’s just a matter of time.

Ontario has confirmed 326 cases of monkeypox with 11 individuals hospitalized including two requiring intensive care.

While anyone can contract monkeypox, all but two of the cases in Ontario were in men and the average age was 36 years-old.

Another nine probable cases include seven men and two women.

This sounds so vaguely familiar….

Should’a done this back in June I guess.

Where was Trudeau’s photo-op telling us that we would be racist if we didn’t have sex with monkeys? A zoo? Circus? He did the Chinese Restaurant thing back in February 2020 about COVID after getting back from Africa from trying to purchase votes for that UN Security Seat.

I can picture it now:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians to stay united and warned against the rise of discrimination as fears of Monkey Pox spread.

"There is no place in our country for discrimination driven by fear or misinformation," Trudeau said by the Organ Grinder on the corner in Scarborough, a district in Toronto. "This is not something Canadians will ever stand for."

The comments come just days after politicians, public health officials and members of the Canadian Monkey community in Toronto said that more needed to be done to avoid a recurrence of the racism and xenophobia experienced during Planet of the Apes Movies from the ‘60’s & early ‘70’s…
1660270335795.jpeg
Mr. (King) Kong, the executive director of the Toronto chapter of the Monkey Canadian National Council, said Monkey Canadians have become the targets of xenophobic comments in recent days, both online and offline.

"If someone looks Monkey-ish or appears to be Simian, the assumption is that they're virus carriers," said Kong in an interview on CBC News Network. "We saw this with SARS, Ebola, and often it has a racial tinge to it."

TORONTO — Public Health Ontario says there are now 529 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the province.


The agency’s latest report on the disease as of Monday reflects an increase in the case tally of 478 confirmed cases in Ontario as of last Wednesday.

The report says nearly 75 per cent of the confirmed cases are in Toronto and all but three cases are reported among males.

It says four of the confirmed cases are in people under the age of 20, two are in people over the age of 70 and the average age of people with confirmed cases is about 36.

Public health says 16 people have been hospitalized with the illness in the province and two people have been in intensive care.

There are also nine probable cases in Ontario.

Monkeypox spreads when people have close, physical contact with an infected person’s lesions, their clothing or bedsheets, and symptoms can include rash, swollen lymph nodes and fever.

Monkeypox patient’s rotting nose mistaken for sunburn
40-year-old unidentified man had a red spot checked out by his doctor

A German patient with monkeypox has a rotting nose after the initial red spot was believed to be a sunburn.



The 40-year-old unidentified man had the red spot checked out by his doctor, who dismissed it as a sunburn.

A few days later, the lesion began to turn black and pus-filled sores began to show up all over his body, according to a report in the medical journal Infection.

It was determined that the patient had monkeypox and was given antivirals.


The man had never before been tested for sexually transmitted diseases but doctors soon discovered that in addition to his severe monkeypox infection, he was suffering from an undiagnosed advanced HIV infection as well as syphilis.

The syphilis had been undetected for so long, it spread to multiple organs; his HIV infection had developed into AIDS.

The STD meds he was given – for the HIV infection and another for syphilis – helped dry out the lesions on his body. His nose, however, only partially improved but there is less swelling.

“Most cases of MPXV (monkeypox) infection so far have been reported as mild and controlled HIV infection does not appear to be a risk factor for severe courses,” according to study authors Christoph Boesecke, Malte B. Monin, Kathrin van Bremen, Stefan Schlabe and Christian Hoffmann.

“However, this case illustrates the potential severity of MPXV infection in the setting of severe immunosuppression and untreated HIV infection.”

It is unknown what the Germany patient’s status is now.

Germany has seen its total number of reported monkeypox cases hit 3,186 but the number of cases in August have been trending downward, The Local Germany reported.

The number of confirmed cases in Canada is 1,112 and 38,452 cases worldwide, according to the Health Canada.

Publishing date:Sep 21, 2022 • 16 hours ago • 1 minute read • 11 Comments

This image provided by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) shows monkeypox particles (red) found within an infected cell (blue), cultured in the laboratory that was captured and color-enhanced at the NIAID Integrated Research Facility (IRF) in Fort Detrick, Md., in an undated colorized transmission electron micrograph. Ontario's chief medical officer of health says monkeypox activity in the province has peaked. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP-NIAID THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Public Health Ontario has confirmed 11 more cases of the monkeypox virus, bringing the total number of cases to 667.


Another 11 probable cases are being investigated in individuals ranging in age from 21 to 69 years old.


Of confirmed cases, 19 individuals were hospitalized and two needed intensive care, but there have been no related deaths in Ontario.

The most common symptoms of the illness are rashes, oral or genital lesions, fever and fatigue.

The highest number of cases has been reported in the City of Toronto with 491, followed by 41 in Ottawa, 21 in Peel, 17 in Hamilton and 15 in Middlesex-London.

“The most commonly reported risk factors include engaging in sexual or intimate contact (e.g. hugging, kissing, cuddling) with new and/or more than one partner,” a Public Health Ontario update released Wednesday says. “Travel, being immunocompromised, or having close contact with someone from outside of the province were less commonly reported. Although cases have mostly been identified among males who report sexual or intimate contact with other males (MSM), anyone can get monkeypox.”

That is when we should all know that the government may just do the opposite and declare the money pox, I mean monkey pox, a public health emergency. Whatever the government says should never be believed. Remember when the lying government officials said that it would take two weeks to flatten the curve? After two years, that curve has not been flattened yet. Politicians have become nothing more then a bunch of professional liars and bull shitters. Ignore what these liars try and push. It's will be just more lies and bullshit. The peasants needs to realize that their politicians are not there for them. they are there for themselves. Believe it or not. :eek:

Well, all I can say is that I am ready for the fake and lying government and the bought off MSM to tell me that I must get ready to be injected for the money, I mean monkey pox, and to quarantine and lock myself down if needed to do so for however long it will take to get better just for my safety and for the safety of others. I have my mask ready to go and to prepare myself to practice social distancing when the orders come out. I have all that I need to know about what I must do when that time comes. Covid 19 did that for me. :giggle:

Like phuk I will. This time they can throw me in one of their commie gulags and at the same time I will then tell them all that they can kiss my big fat white arse hole. It's time for we the peasants to stand up and tell these lying and fake politician traitors of ours to go phuk themselves. If we all did that, then there is nothing they can do. So, would you be a good little commie and obey? Just asking. :giggle:
