The virus appears to be following the covid-19 playbook…. step by step
It was recently revealed that last year the Gates Foundation, the WHO and Big Pharma execs, conducted a monkeypox pandemic “simulation” Coincidence?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that the two child cases were unrelated and were probably the result of household transmission. The agency added that the children were in good health and were being treated.
The cases were reported the day before the World Health Organization declared the rapidly spreading monkeypox outbreak a ‘global health emergency‘.
Reuters reports: Speaking on a conference call, Dr. Jennifer McQuiston, deputy director of the CDC’s division of high consequence pathogens and pathology, said it is not a surprise that pediatric cases of monkeypox have emerged, but “there is no evidence to date that we are seeing this virus spread outside of” the communities of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men.
She said 99% of the 2,891 monkeypox cases confirmed in the United States involve men who have sex with men, but there have been a handful of women and transgender men who have become infected.
White House COVID-19 response coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha, speaking on the same call, said the government has delivered 300,000 doses of a monkeypox vaccine and is working to expedite the shipment from Denmark of 786,000 more doses.
