    Genetics and the so-called monkey pox

    Do you know Stanisław Pietrzak who cooperated with Bonnie Schrack in research on A haplogroup?:

    He is warning about some "Monkey Pox" new pandemics in the link below:

    There are no results of studies yet on the relationship between this new pandemic and the genetic haplotype of disease hosts.
    So there is an open question about the severe course of the disease hatlotype, how is such a hatlotype diagnosed in COVID-19

    WHO warns: Monkey pox may spread in Europe with summer events
    based on: comp. Andrzej Mężyński May 20, 2022, 18:58

    "I am afraid that the spread of monkey pox in Europe may accelerate with summer events and festivals" - warned the director of the World Health Organization (WHO) for Europe, Hans Kluge.
    The summer season is beginning in Europe, accompanied by mass gatherings, festivals and events, I am afraid that the transmission (monkey pox - PAP) may accelerate, as the cases currently detected concern people engaging in sexual activity, and the symptoms (of this disease) are for unknown to many people, Kluge said in a statement posted on the WHO website.

    'Monkey pox is much more difficult to transmit than Covid-19. But anyone can get sick '
    What is monkey pox?
    Monkey pox is a rare zoonotic viral disease that usually occurs in West and Central Africa. Symptoms include fever, headache, and a skin rash that begins on the face and spreads to the rest of the body. Symptoms usually disappear after two or three weeks, reports the WHO. The virus does not spread easily between people, and
    infection most often occurs through close contact with an infected person's body fluids, including through sexual intercourse.

    Recent cases of infection are atypical in several respects, writes Kluge. First, they occur in people who have not previously traveled to African countries where monkey pox is an endemic disease.
    Second, most infections were found among men who had sex with other men.
    Thirdly, the recent emergence of infections in different countries suggests that the virus has been spreading around the world for some time , calculated the director of the European branch of WHO.

    People suspected of having monkey pox should be examined and isolated from the moment the first symptoms appear, Kluge noted. He added that WHO is working closely with the authorities of the countries where the disease has appeared to investigate its sources and prevent further transmission of the virus."
    There are words which carry the presage of defeat. Defence is such a word. What is the result of an even victorious defence? The next attempt of imposing it to that weaker, defender. The attacker, despite temporary setback, feels the master of situation.

    Monkeypox was initially found in 1958, when two epidemics of a pox-like disease happened in study colonies of monkeys, thus the name. During a period of increased effort to eradicate smallpox, the first human incidence of monkeypox was discovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1970. Human cases of monkeypox have been documented in several Western and Central African nations since then. Monkeypox is an uncommon disease caused by a monkeypox viral infection. The Orthopoxvirus genus is included in the Poxviridae family and is responsible for monkeypox. Variola virus (smallpox), vaccinia virus (smallpox vaccine), and cowpox virus are all members of the Orthopoxvirus genus. People have contracted monkeypox outside of Africa as a result of foreign travel or imported animals, with instances reported in the United States, Israel, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. Monkeypox's natural reservoir has yet to be discovered. African rats and non-human primates (such as monkeys) may, nevertheless, carry the virus and infect humans.

    The R number of monkeypox has been estimated widely. Some people say 1.2. The WHO gives an "R number of about 2.13 based on data collected in the Democratic Republic of the Congo between 1966 and 1984".

    3rd generation smallpox vaccine is effective. The case numbers are trending down in some countries.
