Is it or is it not an STD?

Some reports apparently demonising gay bi men, other reports say it spread by moisture droplets from coughs and sneezing.

Any medical experts here?

There have been a number of posts about this. It's spread by close contact between people, by large droplets typically. Trying to restrict it as an STI, misses its scope.

They're using the smallpox vaccine as it gives good immunity to monkeypox too. I would imagine most people had the sp vaxx as a baby.

Nope. SP vax of children in uk was stopped in 1971, and apparently before that the take up was low anyway from 50's onwards. By the time they stopped it, some areas as little as 1% of parents were having their kids done.

Also single SP vax only lasts for about 5 to 10 years unless a booster given. So very unlikely anyone in uk under age of 80 has any SP immunity unless they have had vax as adult for travel.

You were the one who claimed it to be risky so I asked the question. Then you've come back with you don't know so that clears it up. Thanks."

The SP vaccine was developed before all the very rigourous testing regimes we have now were introduced. In that sense I'm sure that antivaxxers would say that SP vax has never completed stage 3 tests, indeed it never started stage 3 tests as there were no such things in the 1800's.

It is essentially an "old fashioned" vaccine because as it's for a disease that was eradicated 50 years ago there has never been any push to update it. Instead of being given as a tiny amount of solution via a needle so small you cannot feel it, apparently it requires making an actual cut on the arm and rubbing stuff into it (disclaimer: I've never had SP vax, but this is what the history site I looked at said).

SP vax is seen as being risky in the sense that if it was given routinely as a precaution against a disease that there are essentially zero cases of, there would be bound to be some small number of cases of complications eg. allergic reactions to the vax, infections in the cut on the arm, etc. So the very slight dangers are still bigger than the incredibly rare chance of catching the (supposedly) extinct disease.

However if there were suddenly an outbreak and thousands of people getting the disease, the sums would swing the other way and the 0.000001% danger from the vax would be much tinier than the 1 to 10% of death (and maybe 50% or more of disfiguring facial scars and other lasting effects) from smallpox.

So the question is, how dangerous is monkeypox? I think we can all assume that our government is playing it down to avoid panic. But it seems there are two possible strains, the worse with up to 10% death rate, the weaker one with ONLY 1% death rate. Which is great. Unless we get a mass outbreak from someone coughing on the underground, or at a football match, or in a crowded shopping centre.

Because 1% death rate makes it worse than covid.

Of course it's nowhere near as infectious... Which is why from a single case a couple of weeks ago it now seems to have grown to maybe 100 cases in total across 3 continents, and the number of known cases in the uk alone has doubled overnight for each of the past three nights...

My take on the monkeypox outbreak:

It isn't an epidemic, and as long as it is taken seriously NOW while the numbers are very low, it won't become an epidemic.

However it would be very easy for it to get out of control, and one good super spreader event (say infected person in a major international airport queueing in crowded security hall for three hours, passing it to people that will then carry it to lots of separate destinations) could turn it into something very serious indeed. It might then be very hard to bring under control again particularly with the number of people that are now dead set against obeying any form of epidemiological measures.

It's not, as far as we know, truly sexually transmitted, i.e via semen or vaginal fluid etc. It IS large droplet transmission so kissing will cause it, as may possibly oral sex as people are presenting with genital lesions. I think it's just chance that it's arisen in men who have sex with men. It can just as easily pass through close bodily contact during a heterosexual encounter - again, droplets or skin to skin contact. It's enough to share a towel that's been in contact with the lesions, or bedsheets etc.

The reports I’ve seen on the news suggest it is spread through close contact and through fluids.

Am no biomedical expert, but from what I saw on the news they went out if way to stress they were not demonising.

But the early facts do seem to suggest the cases have been incubated and spread within a certain section of society. Whether these facts are true or whether reporting such facts are demonising i could not say.

Have any nuns caught it ?

STI angle is well and truly missing the scope. Although sexual contact carries the highest risk of transmission, it is by no means the sole path.

The announcement of gay and bi men is misleading. My take from this, it has been traced back to to a male dominated sauna in Spain therefore, more gay or bi men than hetro will be carrying the initial outbreak.

That won't be for long out in the field and guess it will spread across all corners and balance out who's at risk quite quickly, especially via the bi route.

As for conspiracy theory, it is possible that this is deliberately done to distract government attention from Ukraine.

I am not saying it is or it isn't, but turning up in the UK and the USA simultaneously. For a guy willing to use radioactive poisons and nerve agents in other countries, there is form.

Anyone seen "Operation Mincemeat" yet. This is the kind of clandestine activity happening in the 1940s.

Given the amount we know at the moment, it's possible that Russia could use a pathogen as a bioweapon. They do have form.

"It was reported yesterday It’s spread by close physical touch. So I guess that includes hand shakes, sex, etc.

Probably not handshakes actually because it needs to be quite prolonged contact. However it can be passed on through lesions so I guess it is possible.

No expert but these comments are attributed to experts...

"Professor David Heymann, an infectious disease specialist at the World Health Organisation, said he believed the disease had entered the population as a "sexual form".

"What seems to be happening now is that it has got into the population as a sexual form, as a genital form, and is being spread as are sexually transmitted infections, which has amplified its transmission around the world," he said."

The answer is noboby is a 100% sure what the source of this community spread outbreak is. It just so happens that the majority of the cases particularly in the uk and other European countries have been in men who have sex with men. It is unlikely to be spread just just by a cough or a sneeze but rather prolonged contact or a significant amount of bodily fluid.

The bubonic plague has never gone away. It's endemic in the USA, Eastern Europe, Russia, many African countries etc. The bubonic form can spread to the respiratory system, pneumonic plague. Irrespective of the availability of antibiotics nowadays, pneumonic plague is almost always fatal. Once spreading via the respiratory form, you have a very nasty disease to deal with.

Good luck!

Almost no-one under the age of 50 in the UK will have received the smallpox vaccine because it ceased to be used when the disease was eradicated naturally. There was one lab breakout case just as the wild disease was being declared non existent. But that wasn't wild spread, it was shown to have been acquired in a lab in Birmingham, I believe.

Although a different family of viruses, the mechanism of spread isn't all that different. Ditto chickenpox, which is in the same herpesvirus family as herpes simplex types I and II. Monkeypox is in the poxvirus family, like smallpox was (is, if you go delving into some labs).

Some reports apparently demonising gay bi men, other reports say it spread by moisture droplets from coughs and sneezing.

Any medical experts here?

The reports I’ve seen on the news suggest it is spread through close contact and through fluids.

Am no biomedical expert, but from what I saw on the news they went out if way to stress they were not demonising.

But the early facts do seem to suggest the cases have been incubated and spread within a certain section of society. Whether these facts are true or whether reporting such facts are demonising i could not say.

Have any nuns caught it ?"

Can be caught by contact with clothes, towels, bed linen, touching, surface contamination that someone with blisters has had on them - then kissing, fucking, and air borne in droplets (although difficult to catch this way) with an infected person.

The certain section of society is likely straightforward in the groups meet and socialise together with others of the same mindset.

Could have been a superspreader event at a swinging party where there is a mix of male and females, but this seems to have happened.in a male dominated environment where males have contact with other males.

I'd be cautious of clubs, changing rooms in shops, and other places bare skin can leave residue of virus at the moment as you don't know where others have been prior.

As for cashing in £millions, these companies have paid for research and development and for not these existing, we'd be in a mess with many pathogens that have the potential to kill or main if they didn't.

They save lives, make money doing so which is no bad thing. Where would we be if they had no incentive, so let's be grateful that at 85%, its not perfect but good enough for the herd.

People call Bill Gates and others funding research and helping support countries with the cost claiming ulterior motives which is pure crap.

Although I am unaware of nuns catching it, some medical staff have and without shagging their patients!! Its bodily skin contact or contact with material bodily contact with an infected person has previously rubbed against, touched or worn.

I gather we are 150% passed the 'stop panicking, there are 20 cases per year' value and once it gets into schools, it will be everywhere as they are petri dishes for infection spreading which will then end up within family groups allowing cross spread to siblings to other groups.

Disgusting places they are, all them fingers and pencils in mouths, poor hygiene.

As for the intense itching, nature's way to guarantee spread, make you scratch and release the virus in order to smother other things with it for others to pick up. Virus and bacteria can control behaviour, hence having to declare some infections to DVLA as they make people more reckless in their behaviour that causes accidents.

Yes, there was huge resistance to Jenna's vaccine. Below is an extract from "The History of Vaccination":


"For some parents, the smallpox vaccination itself induced fear and protest. It included scoring the flesh on a child’s arm, and inserting lymph from the blister of a person vaccinated about a week earlier. Some objectors, including the local clergy, believed the vaccine was “unchristian” because it came from an animal. For other anti-vaccinators, their discontent with the smallpox vaccine reflected their general distrust in medicine and in Jenner’s ideas about disease spread. Suspicious of the vaccine’s efficacy, some skeptics alleged that smallpox resulted from decaying matter in the atmosphere. Lastly, many people objected to vaccination because they believed it violated their personal liberty, a tension that worsened as the government developed mandatory vaccine policies. "

But then again, there are also still active campaigns from "Anti Seatbelt" groups too.

I'd say 90% have actually learnt something and made changes that made a difference. It's the remaining 10% that are in denial and probably still think the Earth is flat and made by a God 20,000 years ago in 7 days. I believe in dinosaurs, they are real and they lived. Unfortunately, something else many are failing to believe, is that burning dinosaurs is destroying our planet.

Many are incapable of understanding and learning or deducing the truth behind the presented facts.

Many believe the BS they've are told.

Some find the truth too frightening so instead live in denial.

Many strangely, believe they're submitting to being controlled. The only control they are under is the spell others cast over them in order to make others believe the same, therefore providing safety and comfort in numbers. "See, not just me that believes it".

Over the weekend BBC R2 were associating it with gay and bi men. Yesterday in the Vine show their medial expert said it was moisture droplets and by default close contact, so being gay has nothing to do with it although last night on the R2 news they were still reporting that gay and bi men were at risk.

Lazy reporting at best, homophobic scaremongering at worst. BBC should check its own experts facts before reporting.

Okay, Monkeypox may be spread from handling bushmeat, an animal bite or scratch, body fluids, contaminated objects, or close contact with an infected person. It does not require sexual transmission therefore is not an sti. It can appear similar to chickenpox and the smallpox vaccine is broadly protective against it. The time from exposure to onset of symptoms is usually 7 to 14 days. I don’t know how transmissible it is before the onset of symptoms.

The sti aspect comes from the fact the initial outbreak can be traced to two gatherings (described variously as orgies/raves) where there was sexual contact between attendees, one in Spain, one in Belgium, and specifically centred around men who had sexual contact with other men. The demographics are not irrelevant to understanding how this has spread, but likewise are not important. The virus itself is not selective, anyone can catch it.

A parent or close relative can have innocent bodily contact/close contact and now it’s out there sex is irrelevant to transmission.

Unfortunately condoms aren’t the answer here.

Government taking the absolute piss."

If what you saw was a week between the most severe restrictions and the campaign for Ukrainians, then I suggest you don't have a standard concept of time.

The fact that you don't know the difference between a week and months (or indeed seem to conflate early 2020 restrictions with vaccination) probably doesn't reflect on what happened during Covid, nor what might happen as a result of another outbreak.

As of yet there is no diffinitive findings as to how this outbreak started or how it spreads BUT some of the evidence points to very close physical contact which could include skin on skin contact with a carrier of the virus or on things like towels/sheets, but it's too early in the study to prove that 100% yet.

Cases in Spain are rising and can be directly traced back to a sauna in Madrid user by men who have sex with men and a Slovakian gay man has tested positive after going to gay pride in Gran Canaria. That doesn't mean he definitely got it at pride but it's a significant factor.

To those screaming homophobia, you need to calm down and stop being so defensive. Those of us old enough to remember the outbreak of AIDS/HIV in the 80s will remember some in the gay community dismissing the link between infection and gay sex and look what happend. Let's what and see what the science and research takes us and then take it from there. In the meantime make your own choices to protect yourself or not. I'm going to Gran Canaria in 2 weeks and I will be wearing a mask in shops, buses/taxis etc and carry hand gel with me, that's my choice.

The UK government, A child in London is currently being treated for pox and there has been at least one of other confirmed case in a child in England. "

"Wonder how long before a vaccine for this is added to a vaccine passport/eligibility requirement to enter a country...

They're using the smallpox vaccine as it gives good immunity to monkeypox too. I would imagine most people had the sp vaxx as a baby.

On another thread it was pointed out that it was stopped as routine in the 1970s in the UK.

I never had a smallpox vaccine, as I was born after eradication.

Really? I asked my mum if I had it the other day and she said yes. I wasn't born here though. "

Yes I had it too. I was a mandatory vaccine to enter various countries, especially in Africa, even up to the early 1980. Most people here in UK haven't had it as it though.

Actually there was a form of HIV that was prevalent in some species of animals before the human form came about. The point about all viruses are that they are living breathing organisms and mutate in order to survive. We don't know yet if monkeypox is mutating and what into so I think a little caution is the sensible thing whilst still getting on with life.

" ..... this data suggests there's an inverse correlation between monkeypox and COVID vaccination "

This doesn’t make sense. Monkey pox cases increase as the number of Covid vaccinations decreases, and visa-versa?

The DCR is the home of the second-largest rain forest in the world (after the Amazon), and therefore it’s a very fertile source of new pathogens: AIDS, Ebola, monkey pox.

It is one of the very poorest countries in the world, and has an ineffective health system. So it can’t vaccinate many people.

There are many other poor countries which can't afford to vaccinate their populations, but most are not the sources of novel illnesses.

So the fact that the DRC is a source of new illnesses that it can’t afford to treat has nothing to do with correlation.

"It's an effect of the vaccine"

Very good point made.

To those who disagree:

Few understand there's always a risk in everything we do, driving on the roads and walking around them is one of the highest and not many think ok I need to be very careful today.

Sadly the culture we live in has a brainwashed idea that nothing should go wrong and nothing can if tests are done infinitum. This who die who could be saved in the interim period before it's deemed 'safe' don't matter to those with this idea unless it's a family or loved one then it's personal and their view immediately changes, discarding they previous views.

1. No vaccine is 100% safe...it's a foreign body being put into it to combat the virus, there will always be side effects. Same as eating a big mac and chips and many premade dinners every week, the effects aren't immediate but soon it shows itself wit widespread ramifications and not just personal ones. That's just one example of what many think is ok and the risk is worth the taste of a sh*tty burger.

2.pensions are another. Always were told you're saving for the future and there will be a lump sum when you retire. You know how all that has gone in the last 20 yrs but many still belie it, albeit less and less now... Postoffice.com

3. Insurance payout...no need to say anymore.

Just three examples and there are many more which very few rarely consider but this vaccine which has saved millions and millions of lives, saved millions and millions from getting it worse than if not taking it, opened up our freedoms again, is that too much of a risk?

"According to Pfizers huge side effects documentation there's one listed as autoimmune blistering so to discount that you'd have to find out if the claims of monkeypox is mainly being reported against the jabbed.

You do realise autoimmune blistering isn't the same thing as having monkeypox right?

Autoimmune blistering looks absolutely nothing like monkeypox rash. Nothing whatsoever.

And how do you explain the outbreaks of monkeypox in African countries where next to nobody has received a COVID vaccine? Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example?

The seeds of the evil have spanned back generations. Evil colonialists have exploited Africa for time immemorial. They were testing the Covid vaccine in the 70s when monkeypox was discovered. Maybe they were testing it back when genetic testing determined HIV entered the human population.

Hell. Maybe the fruit of the tree in the Garden of Eden was a Pfizer prototype.
