As monkeypox spreads across the United States, it may be giving people flashbacks to the days of wiping down counters and groceries to get rid of the coronavirus. But for most people, the risk of getting monkeypox remains low. Almost all cases in the current outbreak — 98% — have been in adult men who have sex with men.

Three states have declared an emergency as a result of Monkey Pox. California, Illinois and New York.

In Spain that percentage went down to 85% of cases in gay men....There is NO gay-virus ! For that matter-HIV/AIDS did also start in the gay community (most likely)...it did NOT stay there ! 

Monkeypox looks like more surface and aerosol-spread then HIV...so very likely will see much wider spread in many groups. 

It is WRONG !!! to stigmatize a disease as "only gay"...may delay cases getting reported in non-gay people ! It is not only a STD !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Seems with that extremely high of a percentage of cases among that specific demographic seems like pride month was a super spreader event nationwide( no pun intended ). Must be a hell of a coincidence that high of percentage of cases in a very specific demographic for surface infection spread to be a main contributor to the number of cases, making that mode of transmission rather unlikely given the lack of cases outside the gay/bisexual male demographic. But yeah anyone outside the gay/bisexual male demographic can get monkey pox, the question is why are they NOT getting monkey pox if surface contamination is in fact a major way for the virus to spread.

 6600 cases in the US now and the US is declaring it a public health emergency. I read an article they are now talking about the distinct possibility of monkey pox becoming endemic in the US.
