Ape virus


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What does the board think of monkeypox and the implications on the market? Fear mongering or lockdown 2.0?

 

The symptoms does not seem to be as severe but still it seems contagious enough to be a cause for concern.

 

Lastly, the statistics coming out of Europe does not look good. Confirmed cases have essentially doubled in the last 3 days albeit from a small base.

Well, the title was also a play on wallstreetbet members so your interpretation was not exactly wrong!

Sexual transmission has been heralded as very likely. If so, pandemic potential is irrelevant.

It spreads through aerosel, indirect and direct contact too but you are right that it does not transmit easily from human to human as very close contact is needed.

 

Word on the street is that there is a different variant of monkeypox that is a lot more contagious given the case count in Europe. Either that or there was a mass orgy somewhere I was not invited to!

the theory that a big part of the population no longer got smallpox vaccine seems to be the more likely scenario.  

it used to be everyone got smallpox vaccine and that was also providing protection against various pox viruses

It seems a poor attempt to keep the global vaccination thing going.

An  attempt (WHO?) to repurpose Covid vaccine infrastructure into vaccine development for pox, malaria, polio, ebola, etc. While these diseases remain primarily a 2nd/3rd world problem, progress is very unlikely; but were they to show up in the 1st world, progress would be very rapid. Hence, welcome to monkey pox.

 

1st world kids in the '50's-90's used to be routinely inoculated against these diseases, as grand-parents/parents had seen what these diseases could do. Problem is that the existing inoculates have aged and croaked out, whereas the new kids have progressively not been inoculated. Result? a large pool of 1st world kids and younger adults with no inoculation, and zero experience with these diseases; plus a declining pool of aging inoculated adults with waning protection. A simple scare, diving everyone to inoculate, and these diseases stay in the box - when was the last time you saw someone with Polio?

So us old grumps who grew up on the 60’s and 70’s are immune while the millennials need to hold on for dear life. Will be fun to see the political theatre about immunizations etc on that one. Mortality is about 1% potentially, so higher than COVID-19 but might hit younger people more. They are also more likely to participate in sex Orgies and other activities facilitating transmission.

Yep, I got my scar and I bet most millennials don't know what I am talking about.

IMO, the Crox pandemic originating from Fort Lauderdale in 2001 is more serious than this ape virus. Agraphia is one symptom. Serious cases have shown symptoms of acalculia. People of COBF be careful out there:
