Marburg. Bill Gates has it as one his 'one to watch' for no real reason as far as I can see.

As for sexual health clinics, why not just preach abstinence? Everyone got told they would be 'killing granny' just for standing outside but complete silence on how monkeypox is spread...

complete silence on how monkey pox is spread…

It’s in the article. It’s in almost every article about monkeypox . Paragraphs 2, 8 and 10.

why not just preach abstinence?

Because tens of thousands of years of observing human behaviour have shown that to be a waste of time.

The problem with antiscientific bias is that no matter what is reported it is all a conspiracy. What information of the article is false? what would not be of the interest of the public?

That is the thing, if people make every effort to ignore the reasons then everything happens for "no reason they can see". If something is considered something to pay attention before outbreaks expand then it will be called unjustified alarm, but it is left to spread and causes a high number of cases and deaths then it will be called a failure to be reported on time.

"This is a gap and a weakness in our public health system that monkeypox has exposed," Dr. Meg Doherty, director of the WHO's Global HIV, Hepatitis and STIs Programs, said in an email.

The WHO agency has dropped the ball continuously, misjudging this monkeypox disease, inadequately finding the malaria vaccine initiative, and one fo the biggest gaffes its misguided advice that defied medical experts when it advised against masks at the beginning of the Covid crisis.

Experts in both countries agreed that monkeypox was a wake-up call for more investment in sexual health. "It is time we do something," said NCSD's Harvey.

This disease, formerly transmitted mainly by monkeys, is now spread heavily by humans.
