Fears as MONKEYPOX pandemic sweeps Britain

Two more people have been diagnosed with monkeypox in England, the UK Health Security Agency said. Monkeypox is a rare viral infection, Public Health England said. It does not spread easily and most patients recover within a few weeks.

Dr Deepti Gurdasani and Prof Kit Yates from the iSAGE scientific body have demanded an immediate hard lockdown. “Boris must act now to eradicate monkeypox forever,” Gurdasani said. “Time is of the essence,” Yates concurred.

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection, Public Health England said. It does not spread easily and most patients recover within a few weeks.

Sounds rubbish.

Should be renamed SlothLurgy.

It certainly deserves a more suitably dramatic name than monkey pox.

Ebadlun - 14 May 2022 19:23:49 (#4 of 299)

I'd say a barely infectious, non-fatal disease deserves a much less dramatic name, like Puffin Inconvience.

Cheeky little monkey pox

A pox manqué.

RosyLovelady - 14 May 2022 20:10:30 (#10 of 299)

You people are being heedlessly insensitive about this ghastly new foreign health scare. It looks quite dramatic, and I think it should be called grandpox.

HouseOfLametta - 14 May 2022 20:22:29 (#11 of 299)

Terrapin bumpiness.

fogsake - 14 May 2022 20:23:42 (#12 of 299)

When I first read this, I thought it was Green Monkey Disease, and I panicked a little.

Tinymcsmithy - 14 May 2022 22:48:26 (#16 of 299)

Aye, me too. That’s close to Ebola.

Evidently a couple of cases at a care home down the road from here, two of the old gentlemen had caught a dose of pox from one of the cleaning ladies. Not sure if it was monkey pox though.

Monkey business, was it?
