monkeypox...the new "globalist" hoax?

Apoorva Mandavilli at the NYT

'For the second time in two years, the World Health Organization has taken the extraordinary step of declaring a global emergency. This time the cause is monkeypox, which has spread in just a few weeks to dozens of countries and infected tens of thousands of people.

'Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the W.H.O.’s director general, on Saturday overruled a panel of advisers, who could not come to a consensus, and declared a “public health emergency of international concern,” a designation the W.H.O. currently uses to describe only two other diseases, Covid-19 and polio.

'“We have an outbreak that has spread around the world rapidly through new modes of transmission, about which we understand too little, and which meets the criteria” for a public health emergency, Dr. Tedros told reporters. It was apparently the first time that the director general had sidestepped his advisers to declare an emergency.'


Then this part:

'Nearly all the infections outside Africa have occurred among men who have sex with men.'

I do not think it "extraordinary" for WHO to declare a global emergency..
Here is a list of some of their previous declarations.

It is certainly not a "hoax" and cannot be "another hoax" since WHO is not in the business of making hoaxes.

Although not exclusively a "gay plague" with Pride celebrations happening over the next few weeks the warning is timely.

WHO's warnings are reserved and measured.
AIDS was not a "hoax" and neither was COVID.

What are you babbling on about now?
