In short:

--- Quote ---An outbreak of monkeypox has been identified in a growing number of countries, including the United States. The monkeypox virus, which is related to the variola virus that causes smallpox, typically causes mild illness, but it can sometimes be severe, especially in immunocompromised people.

Monkeypox, which is less severe than smallpox, causes a rash of flat or raised lesions that can occur on the face, genitals, palms of the hands, soles of the feet and elsewhere.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is on the alert after nine monkeypox cases were reported in the United Kingdom, which has an good national disease surveillance system. One person had recently traveled to Nigeria, where the virus is endemic, but the others appear to have contracted the disease in the U.K., suggesting it is spreading from person to person. Since then, around 70 confirmed or suspected cases have been reported in Spain, Portugal and Canada, along with a single case in Massachusetts.

Just what the world needs now

I told my extended family about this virus called Covid. They laugh like I was over reacting. I told me sister about Monkey pox anD she took me seriously this time. She decided to homeschool my niece. Sad that all this is happening. I really hope things improve by the time my niece and other young people grow up.
