CDC Refuses to Label Monkeypox as an STD

World Health Organization Issues EMERGENCY Directive to Homosexuals

(FeaturedNews.com) – Rosamund Lewis, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) leading expert on monkeypox, says the disease currently affects men almost exclusively. While women and children can contract the rare virus, 99% of those infected are male, and 95% of those have sex with other men. Despite that, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) refuses to classify the illness as a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

The WHO issued recommendations for the gay and bisexual male community to use extra caution and help squash the spread of the pox. The organization says it’s important for public health officials to engage with at-risk demographics to promote safety and enact a system of contact tracing to help track any outbreaks.

The group is taking monkeypox very seriously, issuing a global health emergency, its highest alert level, on July 23. Still, with all of the effort to inform the likely victims and spread the word that intercourse between men could be more dangerous than normal, nobody wants to label the bug an STD.

Monkeypox presents much like smallpox but far less contagious and deadly, with a 3% to 6% mortality rate. Fever, rash, and swollen lymph nodes are typical symptoms but severe complications are always possible.

Why do you think the CDC refuses to acknowledge the fact that monkeypox is an STD?
