Actual monkeypox cases follow computer calculations and grow exponential
*IF* the current trend continues, we would expect to see 100k worldwide by August,
and the
first million in September.

I suppose they don't do those anymore?
They are rolling them back out again. Believe anyone who really wants one can get one now in the states. Also NYC is rolling out vax centers for monkeypox too.

I don't really see this as a problem as it's not really lethal and we already have a vax for it that is been used for decades proven effective and safe without a doubt. So no worries people.

If your really worried call your healthcare provider to get the vax or they will tell you where to get one. US also luckily has a stockpile of this vax as well just incase it did ever reemerge so no shortage of the vax either in America.

Agreed. On my private list of things to worry about this one isn't even in the top 20. Still, we could all use a bit of reassurance these days.

Not really a problem here in America since we have a large stockpile of the vax to give to the most vulnerable who want it right away. Which will hopefully stop it in its tracks soon here.

Believe the first day NYC pox vax centers opened they administered all 9,000 doses they had first day!

Though can't speak for other nations i.e Europe, not sure if they have a stockpile of the vax or are distributing it yet, let alone to the masses like America.

Suppose you had a small pox virus (supposedly erased from planet) and you wanted to use as a bioweapon would something like monkey pox be suitable as a demonstration/trial virus or is the mechanism of spread different. This was something I had in a dream but did make me remember it when I woke up. It made me think but as a medico I don't know enough about smallpox since it had been eradicated. Is there anyone who knows how small pox was spread. I remember the stores about giving out smallpox contaminated blankets to indians so it must obviously spread as a contact mechanism also but don't know of other mechanisms.

Thanks the WIKI article did answer the question of respiratory and contact spread as the mechanism for smallpox. There was also an interesting reference to Canadian Scientists re-creating the extinct horse pox virus from genome data in 2017. An interesting point was the possibility of being able to re-engineer smallpox from genome data for a relatively moderate cost without the need for people who are specialist trained.
