Maybe it will stay that way?

SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah — Utah health officials announced Monday that two probable cases of monkeypox have been found in Salt Lake County.

The cases are based on preliminary testing of two adults in the same household. Confirmation of the test results is expected Tuesday.

According to a release from the Salt Lake County Health Department, the two adults became symptomatic after traveling internationally earlier in the month. The residents had gone to the doctor Friday complaining on flu-like symptoms.

Both adults are expected to fully recover and are only experiencing mild illness as they isolate at home.

The department says it has "not identified any exposure risk to the public," the release said, adding exposure is only limited to those people who had direct, close contact with the infected individuals.

Monkeypox does not spread easily among humans and is usually found in Central and West Africa, though cases have recently been found in North America and Europe.

Symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, exhaustion and swollen lymph nodes. Those infected develop a rash that turns into fluid-filled bumps, or pox, that eventually scab over and fall off.

While there is no proven treatment for monkeypox, the health department says most people recover with no treatment.

Yeah, it's not going to result in any kind of lockdowns.  

Humans are not the reservoir host so it is not likely to become endemic or spread much outside of Africa where they consume bush meats and have other animal-human exposures.   Mostly, this is something that is seen in international travelers (and rarely at that) - it is something I educate people about going to certain parts of Africa.  Unless it has mutated (and the WHO suggests that there is no evidence of that), it is not something we need to be terribly concerned about spreading here in the US.

Unless something weird happens like a mutation increasing transmission rates this is actually pretty normal stuff. The news is just more sensitive to disease stories since Covid which is both good and bad I suppose.

Just in time for the mid term elections. We are circling the drain. We produce ultra sexual students who are not educated enough in geology to keep them from digging holes in the sand and killing themselves. We are afraid of our shadow.

You do know that we have seen monkeypox outbreaks before right? And that we already have a vaccine that works pretty well on it? And there is no indication of mutation?

Thank you. I just got really depressed when I read about those two separate sand burying episodes. One episode was in Utah, the other in New Jersey. In both cases the Elder son died and the younger daughters lived.

I remember kids killing themselves playing with firecrackers when I was a kid. Kids doing stupid things to themselves happened long before they documented themselves doing it with video.

Terrible sources. I can email you my unit on discerning fake news and understanding bias, if you'd like.

Here's a better news source for you: The Onion

The teen sex rate has been steadily decreasing.

I wonder if sex is still a major part of their lives, as in many see themselves primarily as sexual actors, possibly animated sexual objects for others or the predator. Do they interpret their body and feelings mainly through a sexual filter (think choosing clothing to emphasize sexual interest, availability, etc) or if sex is actually taking a second place, not just modified to artificial (porn) or long distance sexual displaying through social media rather than in person.

A source for this might be helpful.  The admitted anecdotal evidence that I have is just the opposite.

Top google hit is a report from 2017 from the CDC:

Quote

The report documented the following findings:

  • Among teen females aged 15-19, 42% had ever had sex, and among teen males, the percent was 44%.
  • These percentages have gradually declined since 1988 when 51% of female and 60% of male teens had ever had sex.

Here's from the CDC's 2019 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey:

Quote

In a number of areas, particularly regarding sexual behavior and high-risk substance use, trends over time are improving
and moving in the right direction. These include declines in the percentage of students who ever had sex, had four or more sex partners, are currently sexually active, or ever used or injected drugs. 

On page 12 you get the specific details. It's a chart in a PDF so I can't really copy and paste it, but here's one column I'll type out:

The percentage of high school students who ever had sex:

2009: 46%

2011: 47.4%

2015: 46.8%

2017: 39.5%

2019: 38.4%

These numbers differ from the first ones I gave because this focuses on high schoolers while the one above is ages 15-19. Also, these number combine both males and females.

Every generation were morons when they were children. Older people’s memory just gets selective.

If there really are more lockdowns coming, we just need to take the Rosa Parks approach and say “no.”

Also if alien killer crabs land from space and try to conquer the earth we should probably dodge the draft. Better psych ourselves up in advance just in case.
