Which sound eerily similar to nearly every single virus. I’d say rather than worrying I’d say that for now the outbreak is puzzling.

At least we know what it is. The worldwide (although extremely rare) hepatitis infection in children of unknown origin I find more worrying.

As to how things go from here, who knows, but one thing for certain it will be used by governments and press to their own ends.
Well that was not very subtle now was it. You wouldn't by any chance have a source or link that "inspired" this belief ?

Presumably heterosexual party's consist of eating ham and cucumber sandwiches, drinking one small glass of white wine, or sherry, and carrying out learned conversations about the long term financial impact on say, the lug worm market...before all retiring to bed, their own, obviously ! by 22.00hrs at the latest !

There was an unfortunate mention of plumbers and, erm, associating with monkeys. All I can say, is, in the RAF, Armourers were referred to, as, ...plumbers

“the country’s health security agency noting cases have predominantly been found in gay and bisexual men.“

Although the Pink News article does point out that gay men are more likely to be diligent about sexual health and report any unusual symptoms to a clinic.

I have confirmed that plumbers are not to blame for the outbreak. I had a chat with a primates specialist friend of mine, who categorically stated "Not a chance....monkeys have standards".

Since at least one if those affected is a health care worker who treated one of those infected, the NHS service must be looking up.

Yeah, the press really overdid it on Covid, just a mild case of the sniffles really.

Apparently scientists are concerned about people who may be infected with monkeypox but are showing no visible signs.

They are being described as achimptomatic....

Some reports indicate it originally was found in rats . Here is hoping that the rats do not get it and spread it . Most big cities have large rat populations . Could be Deja Vu 2 if the rats start spreading it .

OK, I promise not to be intimate with a rat.

Another 36 cases in England, so if that rate of increases continues it will surely become 'exponential'!

What I don't understand is why homosexual men should be at particular risk, surely the risks for all sexually active groups ought to be similar?

The rat being referred to is the Gambian pouched rat, not your everyday rat.

You might want to do some research about why homosexual men were more at risk of AIDS in the 80's.
