On Friday I heard two people discussing Monkeypox when a news report showed a picture of infected countries and the woman said "Yes I blame China".

When her friend pointed out that China wasn't highlighted on the map her response was "Yeh but they started it".

I don't want to alarm anybody ..... but I think I saw a Zombie Monkey on my way home from the pub last night. Fortunately it got chased off by a Zombie Triceratops. :pint::eek:

To get Monkeypox you need to be getting some.

And/or from elsewhere.

I tick neither of those boxes.

It's a 'win' of sorts, but i kinda wish i was 'at risk'.

I'm asexual so I'm practically immune! ;)

In all seriousness though, I have heard there are other environments of skin-to-skin contact and an exchanging of bodily fluids where transmission can occur such as gigs (hey, I've been to some exciting gigs, OK!).

That old chestnut! 😉

It will be interesting to see if there does turn out to be any residual cover from the smallpox vaccinations that some of the more venerable people will have had.

I can't remember when my last one was - early 1970s, I expect.

If you have any doubts as to the structural integrity of any sanity that you may have remaining, then I suggest that you don't read the comments under any WHO post about monkeypox that you might see on Facebook.

I saw a thread on Twitter the other day that I can't find again to post now (I scrolled past it pretty fast!) from a guy who has monkeypox currently and is in hospital with multiple horrible, black lesions all over his face. The disfiguring element of this disease is so disconcerting.
