Biden on Monkeypox: Outbreak should concern ‘everybody,’ as health experts are baffled

47

Joe Biden, the Vice President, stated on Sunday about Biden on Monkeypox that the recent outbreak of monkeypox should concern “everyone” because it continues to confound medical professionals all around the world.

According to Reuters, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of reporters in South Korea right before boarding Air Force One to head to Japan and stated, “Everyone should be concerned about [it].” Biden was speaking about North Korea’s nuclear program.

The comments made by the president come at a time when there have been multiple reports of outbreaks of monkeypox in Africa, followed by other reported cases in Europe and the United States.

Biden continued by saying, “We’re working on it, and it’s hard to figure out what we do.”

In spite of the fact that there are at least 80 confirmed cases of the sickness in other parts of the world and another 50 probable cases, the United States has only confirmed two cases of the illness since the first case was discovered in Texas.

Cases have been recorded in Britain, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the United States, Sweden, and Canada, all by persons who reportedly had no travel history with Africa. Cases have also been reported in Sweden. In addition to Australia, France, Germany, and Belgium all reported verified instances of the illness this week.

The worldwide phenomenon of monkeypox leaves medical professionals perplexed, despite the fact that no monkeypox-related fatalities have been reported.

“This really blows my mind. Every morning when I wake up, I see that more nations have been infected “Oyewale Tomori, a virologist who is also a member of the advisory council for the World Health Organization, stated.

“This is not the kind of spread we’ve seen in West Africa, so there may be something new going in the West,” he noted. “This is not the kind of spread we’ve seen in West Africa.”

A similar sentiment was expressed by Christian Happi, the director of the African Centre of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Diseases. He stated that he has “never seen anything like what’s happening in Europe.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that one in ten people could die from monkeypox, despite the fact that the disease is so close to the virus that causes smallpox that immunizations against smallpox can provide some protection.

This year, the first case of monkeypox in the United States has been confirmed in the state of Massachusetts.

Both viruses cause symptoms that are very similar to one another.

In the beginning, symptoms are primarily those that are associated with the flu, such as fever, headaches, and shortness of breath. These symptoms develop one to two weeks after infection. After around five days, a skin eruption phase begins, during which a rash develops and frequently extends to different parts of the body. This phase typically lasts for several days.
