Great time for japan to do away with quarrenting , testing and opening the borders.

The person concerned entered Chongqing city in transit from abroad.

The person? I wonder if it was a man, a gay man? Has there been a case that isn't yet?

Has there been a case that isn't yet?

Yes.

Outside of Africa cases are 98% percent gay or bisexual males. So 2% are not.

In Africa currently 40% of cases are women.

Africa have been dealing with and warning about the virus for decades.

Covid Zero. Monkeypox Zero. Athlete's Foot Zero. Go for it, China!

I hope they don't a lockdown on tens of millions of people to save national pride. I'm not joking. The big national party congress is coming up. This could be another excuse to repress the population.

Some have accused China of weaponizing the coronavirus: lockdown to disrupt businesses and supply chains and to slowdown the economies of other countries. It’s a question lower projected growth for China but a bigger impact for other economies.

This is just another way of attacking China when war with Taiwan doesn’t seem likely to happen.

The virus is spread through physical contact or even bedsheets. Not necessarily sexual contact.

Not necessarily, Bob, but mostly. And mostly, so far at least, through contact between homosexual or bisexual men. That’s just a fact, and any internet search will give you reliable confirmation of that. 

I didn’t dispute it. In fact gave the 98% statistic if you scroll up.

I don’t think it does any good to try and water down that fact, especially not to those who are most vulnerable to this disease.

I think it is dangerous to dismiss this as a ‘gay’ disease and assume it will not affect others. As is clearly the case in Africa, to which I was referring earlier.

Doesn't sexual contact require physical contact?

Do you not understand what 'Not necessarily' means?

Maybe google it. Your question is nonsensical as a response to the comment you quoted.

Oh, you didn't understand the fact that sexual contact requires physical contact. Necessarily. Your mistake is forgiven.

Google what? Why? What didn't you understand that made you google it?

Sexual contact can also cause painful rashes.

So can some foods if you are allergic to them. My wife's arms will break out in a rash if she hugs our dogs.

Painkillers can cause rashes too. So I've read. From my experience, it seems to be

Monkeypox is from Danish rats. Don’t blame the poor monkeys who caught it from them.
