The World Health Organization (WHO) is begging people to stop attacking monkeys!
After WHO and the media stirred up great fear of monkeypox outbreaks (click here for a foolproof, guaranteed way to avoid monkeypox), it seems they now realize the damage they've caused by telling everyone this is an existential threat to their existence.
In Brazil, news website G1 reported that 10 monkeys have been poisoned in less than a week in Sao Jose do Rio Preto, with seven dying. Similar incidents were reported in other cities as well.
"What people need to know is that the transmission we are seeing is happening between humans," WHO spokesperson Dr. Margaret Harris said Tuesday at a press briefing in Geneva.
Last month, the WHO declared monkeypox a "public health emergency of international concern," which was followed by other leaders such as Biden naming it a national emergency.
Now monkeys are being attacked out of fear.
Who could have seen that coming!
"The concern should be about where it's transmitting in the human population and what humans can do to protect themselves from getting it and transmitting it," Harris said. "They should certainly not be attacking any animals."
The amount of fear-mongering we have witnessed surrounding monkeypox is nothing new – we're still seeing it all over the last so-called public health emergency!
What was that thing called again?
"The name chosen for this new disease is very unfortunate. Many people in Brazil believe that monkeys carry the disease and are persecuting these animals," Dener Giovanini, the coordinator of an organization called Renctas, an acronym for the National Network to Combat Wildlife Trafficking said, adding, "We are very concerned because this represents a huge threat to wild animals in Brazil, which are already very endangered."
It's almost like the WHO could have avoided this by telling gay men to stop having orgies for a few weeks instead of scaring everyone into irrational acts of mass hysteria!
