Nearly complete. Even the gay cowboys.

In 40 days the US went from twenty States with Monkeypox to 48 States. We were a distant 10th in the world, now we are #1! GO USA! It is now in 74+ countries. I haven't checked the last day or two.

I wanted to talk about it today because Fox News last night was telling people all sorts of wrong things.  I'm trying to figure out which thing is the most important to tell people.

I guess the biggest lie right now is we have a vaccine and treatments. I mean....... we do have vaccines. The old one from the old timey days for smallpox which is very dangerous. 

The new one, which actually hasn't even been tested on anyone. Yeah. You heard that right. Hasn't been tested on children. No known efficiency for adults which the CDC just admitted last night. 

The second thing is there are tons of people who can't even get the vaccine. People with eczema are at an especially high risk of bad outcomes. That is fully 3% of the world population. The old vaccine basically has the live virus, so people with eczema can't even be around anyone that was vaccinated since eczema basically is open sores. MPox is very contagious to that group. Pregnant women not allowed to get the vaccine. People with immune problems - also not allowed.

The third thing is that only the gay gay gays can get it. Just last night a child in the US was reported with Monkeypox and a pregnant woman. And if you have ready ANY of the stories from the currently infected, it is truly the saddest thing. People can't eat. People can't even FART or poop it hurts so bad. To have children and the elderly exposed to this is next level evil. Even morphine doesn't cut the pain. And a large portion of people who have written about their experience say they contemplated suicide because the pain is that intense. Some people have been maxed out on morphine and the doctor tells them that can't have any more because it will stop their heart.

There have been reports of community spread for at least a month now. Meaning they can't link some cases to the known outbreak. Last night stories started coming through nighttime twitter of cases not linked to sex at all. One guy thought he got it from his job.

So.... this is where we stand right now.

I think most infuriating thing of the past three years is that people have been more focused on fighting the "fear" than fighting any of the viruses. So now we get to do this with a public that doesn't trust anyone and doesn't believe anything. And we all now have unisex bathrooms. 

I would have said we should get this under control ASAP considering what this could do to Airbnb and the travel industry in general. But who am I kidding... right? The time to act was more than a month ago, but no one is going to listen to them now.
