Authorities in the UK have warned that a new monkey pox virus  that has infected nine people could mutate further and cause deaths.  The virus, known also as monkeypox, is understood to be primarily infecting people who have not travelled from Western Africa.  Signs of infection include fever, headache, muscle aches, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion.

Cases have been reported in Canada, Spain and the UK among other countries.

Is it time to stock up on those little surgical masks?

Are we all completely fucked?

Should I take the Tamiflu I stockpiled for bird flu?

Have any P&Bers ever been part of a worldwide pandemic?

This looks confusing.  It has primarily affected people who have NOT travelled from Western Africa. 

This suggests that if I travel from Inverness to Dingwall directly then I am more at risk than if I did so via Timbuktu.

Have I understood that wrong?

It's a parody of the opening post from the Covid thread, however it is true that more of the cases in the UK have not recently travelled to west Africa than have.

I remember a few years back there was some rumours of a worldwide pandemic.  Britain boogied through it led by the glorious Boris Johnson so it didn’t affect me personally.  My cousin in Hong Kong had to stay at home for a while though.

"Coronavirus" at least sounded like a proper name for a virus that could potentially wipe out humanity.

"Monkey pox", nobody's going to take that seriously until it gets a better name.

Chimpfluenza?

Obviously contagious as this is the second thread on this.

Can anyone think of a sentence containing the word contagious?

Someone will, but it'll probably take the c**t ages.

I've already had it, so I'll be be fine. 

If you catch monkeypox more than once does that make you a "serial apist"?

That joke came courtesy of the Big Bang Theory.

We're on the verge of needing a world league table of cases with humorous commentary about how the lads from Spain are putting a good run together to climb the table.

I won't be freaked out by the coincidence until I hear locked-down Italians singing out of their balconies.
