World Health Org. to rename monkeypox because its racist

The World Health Organization’s director general said that WHO will rename monkeypox soon, because of stigma and racism.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director general, announced Tuesday that the organization is working with partners and experts from around the world to change the name of monkeypox virus.

“Stigmatizing groups of people because of a disease is never acceptable. It can be a barrier to ending an outbreak as it may prevent people from seeking care, and lead to undetected spread,” WHO said on its website.

The disease has started to show up in countries where it is not endemic, outside the African continent. In America, there have now been 72 cases of the disease, which is spreading mainly among the promiscuous gay male community. The global case count has risen to 1,600; on May 20 there were but 80 cases identified globally. Today, the main outbreak is in the United Kingdom, with 470, Spain with 313, and Portugal with 231 cases. Germany has 229, Canada reports 142 cases, and France has 125 actives cases that are known.

“In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing. The most obvious manifestation of this is the use of photos of African patients to depict the pox lesions in mainstream media in the global north. Recently, Foreign Press Association, Africa issued a statement urging the global media to stop using images of African people to highlight the outbreak in Europe,” wrote a group of scientists in the journal Virological.

“Some cases have been identified through sexual health clinics in communities of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. It is important to note that the risk of monkeypox is not limited to men who have sex with men. Anyone who has close contact with someone who is infectious is at risk. However, given that the virus is being identified in these communities, learning about monkeypox will help ensure that as few people as possible are affected and that the outbreak can be stopped,” the Centers for Disease Control said last month.

Symptoms of monkeypox include: 

  • Rash with blisters on face, hands, feet, eyes, mouth and/or genitals 
  • Fever 
  • Swollen lymph nodes 
  • Headaches 
  • Muscle aches 
  • Low energy 

WHO says you can catch monkeypox if you have close physical contact with someone who is symptomatic. This includes touching and being face-to-face. 

“Monkeypox can spread during close skin-to-skin contact during sex, including kissing, touching, oral and penetrative sex with someone who has symptoms. Avoid having close contact with anyone who has symptoms,” WHO says.

This is the first time that so many monkeypox cases and clusters have been reported concurrently in non-endemic and endemic countries in widely disparate geographical areas, according to WHO. Most cases are being identified through sexual health services in primary or secondary health-care facilities and have involved mainly, but not exclusively, men who have sex with men.

Meanwhile, the U.S. government has ordered 500,000 more monkeypox vaccine doses for delivery this year, according to the manufacturer, Bavarian Nordic of Denmark. The European Union has ordered 110,000 doses of the vaccine from the company.

  1. Oh please… WHO TAG isn’t getting any fear traction, sees his influence waning, and wants his power back. Solution? Rename the disease so it doesn’t get mocked. Claim that it is somehow discriminatory and racist… Right out of Alinsky’s playbook. Meanwhile, the vax manufacturer is amassing wealth for disproportionately huge orders at government(s) expenses. Why anyone would take this seriously is amazing. Is the disease real? – yeah it is and it is serious – but COVID it is not, let alone the bubonic plague.

  2. So many lies, untruths, propaganda, fear porn, and gaslighting! Will we ever know the truth? Narrative is crumbling. In this crazy shell game we must all start shouting, it is time to turn over all of the cups and find out what is in the hand of the circus ring master(s). Time to take the red pill and exit the Matrix or Twilight Zone. Why is mortality skyrocketing? Young once healthy people are dying in record numbers. This is NOT normal, right! Did covid measures cause more harm than good. Yes they did. Did the covid jabs do more harm than good? Yes, they did look at VAERS. More deaths and serious side effects that all other jabs combined, times 10. Where are the risk versus benefit analysis? If you need stitches do you go to politicians? Why do we think selfish lifelong self-dealing bureaucrats can be trusted in a shit house wearing a muzzle? We all clearly know none of them can be trusted. Why are jabs even being offered any longer? The plandemic/scamdemic is over. Follow the money! Stop going along to get along. Wake up people! Think about what you are doing. Why are you driving around in a vehicle by yourself with a mask on? Why are people riding bicycles, jogging and walking OUTSIDE with masks on? Do you realize you are filling your lungs with microfibers that will cause permanent lung damage? If you haven’t caught COVID by now do you think you might have natural immunity? What happened to flu season? Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If “they” have admitted the covid jabs don’t stop the spread and it doesn’t even appear to be spreading, why haven’t the Emergency Authorizations been removed? Did the world come to an end when the TSA mask mandate finally ended? NO it did not. This isn’t about saving lives! This is about destroying humanity….one death jab at a time. Wake up before it is too late. Then focus on why do we have food shortages? Why is inflation double digit? Why have fuel prices skyrocketed? Remember the dumbass in D.C. pointing fingers at everyone else has more pointing back at him. Yes, Biden et.al you caused all of this and will be remembered for your treason.

  3. I’m White and it never occurred to me that there was even a hint of racism here. Orangatanpox. Gorillapox. Chimpanzeepox. Are those also racist words?

  4. And anyone should believe ANYTHING coming from the WHO? Just another example of how they keep creating crap just to keep proving how much they stink.

  5. Rename it ‘moneypox’… That’s what it is to big pharma. 90%+ of the cases in deep blue or blue locations. Nuff said…

  6. I remember going through Chicken Pox.. I Remember Corona.. I remember the Ebola scare.
    If it is my time to go and it’s from a virus, so be it.
    I am not so afraid of death that I am willing to subjugate others to tyranny or deteriorating their lives and community.. b/c I am afraid.
    This is life.. grow up!! We do what we can but it can be dog eat dog, especially when we start blaming each other for what happens naturally.
    We tamper with nature and only make things worse.. so it will be with any sickness that is released upon the masses.
    You need a base of untested in order to compare results against the test subjects, I’ll gladly be that person.

    • Interesting how the various publications about the disease fail to mention that while not exclusively the large majority of cases involves males who are either gay or having same sex relations. The numbers I have read show it to be over 95% that way. While it seems to target that group of persons it is definitely not racist to report those facts. Men who live alternative life styles should be on alert to all risks from what ever behavior they engage in.

  7. Now, someone is making the insinuation that people from Africa resemble monkeys, hence the racist label. Is the WHO saying Africans look like monkeys? We need some more explanation. BTW, staying out of large nude group gatherings and you’ll be just fine. The biggest case counts will be in Liberal cities, just watch.

  8. Hasn’t the unconstitutional usurp of power by bureaucrats gone on long enough? Hasn’t mainstream media participated in enough of Nancy Pelosi’s infamous wrap up smears and outright fear porn, which by the way was authorized by Obama. Haven’t the ABC organizations and non-governmental organizations big tech and social media spied on all of us enough. If this was actually ever about public health, then why are illegal immigrants storming our borders NOT subject to any of the testing, vaccine mandates or other lockdown type requirements. Moneypox is their new fear porn. Time for all of the illegal activities to cease and restore personal sovereignty. Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” That quote often comes up in the context of new technology and concerns about government surveillance.
