Posted on 07/17/2022 7:42:10 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the window to control the spread of the monkeypox virus in the United States may be closed.
Partial transcript as follows:
MARGARET: Give us a sense of the scale of this because the CDC numbers are out. They say they’re only eight women within that. No children. You’re saying this is a pandemic? That’s not a word the administration is using yet, what level of emergency are we at?
GOTTLIEB: Yeah look, and I think they’re going to be reluctant to use the word pandemic, because it implies that they’ve failed to contain this. And I think at this point, we’ve failed to contain this. We’re now at the cusp of this becoming an endemic virus where this now becomes something that’s persistent that we need to continue to deal with. I think the window for getting control of this and containing it probably has closed, and if it hasn’t closed, it’s certainly starting to close. 11,000 cases across the world right now. 1,800 cases, as you said, in the US. We’re probably detecting just a fraction of the actual cases because we have a very, we had for a long time a very narrow case definition on who got tested. And by and large, we’re looking in the community of men who have sex with men and STD clinics. So we’re looking there, we’re finding cases there. But it’s a fact that there’s cases outside that community right now. We’re not picking them up, because we’re not looking there. This has spread more broadly in the community. I wouldn’t be surprised there’s thousands of cases right now.\

All because no one wanted to stigmatize gay men.
An amazing lack of willingness to call this what it really is. This could have been shut down if we’d called out the homo community.
That will never stop the control freaks
“If you want to know who rules you find out who you can not criticize.”
“…Give us a sense of the scale of this because the CDC numbers are out. They say they’re only eight women within that….”
My guess is that most or all of these “women” were NOT female at birth.
Donkeypox just in time to steal another election.
They are sickeningly obvious.
Unless you’re gay, I’m pretty sure you’re safe.
Brownholers in denial. And the band played on.
(said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the window to control the spread of the monkeypox virus in the United States may be closed.)
Of course it has. There are midterms coming up.
The Fear(TM) must be spread NOW!!
didn’t I read that monkeypox is only spread by anal intercourse?
It was never going to be contained. Can’t stop the Gay men from doing the homosexual thing.
I’m not worried about monkey pox....because I’m not a queer having butt sex with strangers. 🤣
You can even see the miles and miles of piles of burning bodies from the space station
I don't think that's entirely true. Though not thought to be airborne like covid-19, it does spread through casual contact. Think city dwellers and people working in office.
How many people do you shake hands with? Do you know their sexual preferences? Do you know if they've shaken hands with anyone high risk?
Unlike smallpox which didn't have an animal reservoir, monkeypox can be carried by small rodents. Squirrels, ground hogs, etc. If it spreads to those animal communities it could become endemic to North America.
Fortunately, it's a DNA virus and doesn't mutate much.
Why worry about the window when it comes in by the back door?
Yep, the gay rights movement is just like the civil rights movement of the 1950’s and early 60s.
Remember after the civil rights act was passed and Jim-Crow laws were ended, and several years after that, black people started coming down with a deadly auto immune disease that caused open sores, weight loss, and death?
That always seems to happen whenever oppressed people are given equal rights, doesn’t it?
