Over 200 people are being monitored for monkeypox infections in Massachusetts, according to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

The CDC confirmed more than 200 people are being tracked in Massachusetts after coming in physical contact with the first confirmed case in the U.S.

The news comes days after health experts said monkeypox will not become a pandemic like Covid-19.

Symptoms of monkeypox include fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, weakness, and swollen lymph nodes (in neck, armpits and groin areas. Symptoms are followed by blisters that pop and crust over.

Blisters in the groin area are usually the first sign of monkeypox infections.

The CDC issued a level-2 travel alert on Monday, May 23, advising people to "practice enhanced precautions" — and warning that it might be fatal in 1% to 11% of people who become infected.

Health experts say the new strain of monkeypox virus may be transmitted sexually.

"Some cases were reported among men who have sex with men," the CDC said after health officials in Europe linked 89 monkeypox cases to sexual activity at festivals in Europe.

The CDC emphasized the need to "avoid close contact with sick people, including those with skin lesions or genital lesions" — as well as avoiding "contact with dead or live wild animals."

The United Nations issued a warning that "homophobic and racist" language used in news reports on monkeypox cases jeopardizes public health.

As previously reported, 89 confirmed cases of monkeypox in Europe are all men who have sex with men (MSM).

Dr. Amesh Adalia, of Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, says "monkeypox is not a threat to the general public. This is something we've dealt with before."

He added, "What's interesting about this outbreak that's occurring now is it's transmitting person to person with people who haven't been to any of the endemic areas in Africa - haven't had contact with animals. So, we've got epidemiological work to do to halt this outbreak. It's not something that has pandemic potential..."

Dr. Adalia seemed to confirm that monkeypox only affects a certain group of people through person to person contact.

However, UNAIDS says pointing out any link to the gay community and monkeypox transmission causes "stigma" and will have a "devastating effect" on the public's response to the outbreak.

"Stigma and blame undermine trust and capacity to respond effectively during outbreaks like this one," Matthew Kavanagh, UNAIDS deputy executive director, said Sunday in a statement.

UNAIDS, which was launched in 1996 as a global response to the AIDS epidemic, is now urging media outlets to report on the spread of monkeypox "with a rights-based, evidence-based approach that avoids stigma."

According to UNAIDS, the decades long fight to end AIDS round the world — "show that stigma and blame directed at certain groups of people can rapidly undermine outbreak response."

"Stigma hurts everyone. Shared science and social solidarity help everyone," said Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh reiterated that "this disease can affect anyone" and he thanked members of the LGBTQ community "for having led the way on raising awareness."

Health officials in 16 countries are "alarmed" at the number of new cases of a novel strain of monkeypox virus.

16 countries - including the United States, England, Spain, Italy, Belgium and Denmark have confirmed monkeypox infections among gay and bisexual men.

Symptoms of monkeypox include fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, weakness, and swollen lymph nodes (in neck, armpits and groin areas. Symptoms are followed by itchy blisters that burst and crust over.

Health officials are "alarmed" at the "unprecedented" clusters of cases, which disproportionately affect men in the LGBT community.

Denmark is the latest to confirm a case in a man who recently returned from Spain.

The CDC first detected cluster cases of monkeypox virus in the United States in 2003. But the recent outbreaks are caused by a new strain that is spreading rapidly by sexual contact.

Despite the increase in cases, health experts insist monkeypox won't spiral out of control like Covid-19, which shut down the world in 2020.

Through the first months of 2020, more than 4,500 monkeypox cases and 171 deaths have been tracked by the World Health Organization (WHO).

"The cases currently being detected are among those engaging in sexual activity, and the symptoms are unfamiliar to many," the WHO said in a statement.

EU health authorities are telling member states to prepare monkeypox vaccine plan.

No monkeypox virus exists, however, smallpox vaccine is reportedly 85% effective against monkeypox.

The White House said smallpox vaccines are on stockpile from previous monkeypox outbreaks. No mandatory lockdowns or other prevention measures are planned in the US.

Belgium became the first country to order a mandatory 21-day quarantine for men infected with the deadly monkeypox virus.

"Those infected with the monkey pox virus must be in isolation for 21 days," the Dutch publication Standaard reported.

Belgium ordered the lockdown after the country hosted a massive gay pride festival attended by an estimated 80,000 men in Antwerp.

More than 100,000 people celebrated the annual Pride Parade in the streets of Brussels on May 21, 2022.

On Monday, Britain became the second country to introduce mandatory 21-day lockdowns.

Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) is issuing quarantine guidance to 11 more countries where monkeypox cases have popped up.

As previously reported, 89 confirmed cases of monkeypox in Europe are all men who have sex with men (MSM).

The Gran Canaria pride festival, held between May 5 and May 15, has been labeled a "superspreader" event after attendees traveled, spreading the virus worldwide.

"The Gran Canarian pride festival attended by 80,000 from Britain and across Europe is being investigated after being linked to numerous monkeypox cases in Madrid, Italy and Tenerife," the Daily Mail reported.

Symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, weakness, and swollen lymph nodes (in neck, armpits and groin areas. Symptoms are followed by blisters that pop and crust over.

The viral disease is believed to be spread to humans by domestic prairie dogs and other exotic animals being kept as household pets.

Since 2020, the WHO tracked 4,500 cases and 171 deaths attributed to monkeypox.

Three cases of the new strain have been confirmed in the US. Additionally, a White House official warned Sunday that more cases would likely emerge.

The White House official said no quarantine or other extreme measures are planned.

Health officials say monkeypox infection can be prevented by vaccines stockpiled from previous outbreaks.

The CDC first detected cluster cases of monkeypox virus in the United States in 2003.

As cases of a "new" monkeypox spreads in US cities, experts are questioning whether the virus is sexually transmitted.

Through the first months of 2020, more than 4,500 cases and 171 deaths have been tracked by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Now officials fear that monkeypox has mutated into a new, more contagious virus that is sexually transmitted.

"The cases currently being detected are among those engaging in sexual activity, and the symptoms are unfamiliar to many," the WHO said in a statement.

Dr. Jeremy Faust discovered that all 89 confirmed monkeypox cases in Europe are among men who had sex with men.

Of the cases confirmed in Europe, Dr. Faust said, "all 89 are males, a large number of whom are young and middle-aged adults."

Dr. Faust said the evidence "suggests strongly" that monkeypox may still be primarily spread through sexual contact, a known major mode of transmission.

He said if the virus was spread through the air via respiratory droplets or surface to skin contact, some women would be infected by now.

Virologist Angela Rasmussen believes the virus is spread within a sexual network of men who then travel, which explains why the virus is popping up in other countries.

Health officials are working overtime to understand why a rare outbreak of hepatitis is affecting children around the world.

Hepatitis is a viral infection that causes inflammation of the liver and sometimes liver failure.

One child is confirmed dead from liver failure, and hundreds more children are infected with a mysterious strain of hepatitis around the world.

190 cases of acute (sudden and severe) hepatitis have been reported so far in 12 countries, including the United States, where 11 cases have been reported.

Hepatitis is highly contagious and spreads mainly through contact with bodily fluids.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported the first mysterious case of hepatitis in a previously healthy child in England on April 15.

More than 111 cases have been reported in England. Alarmingly, 17 children required liver transplants to save their lives, The Who reported.

Health officials in the UK believe the cases may be linked to a common adenovirus causing dozens of liver failure among children.

Adenovirus is a common virus found in the nose and throat of children that causes mild to moderate upper respiratory illness.

Doctors say the lack of exposure to common viruses due to the lockdowns weakened immune systems in minor children and made them more vulnerable to the common adenovirus.

Healthcare providers in the United States are asked to report any suspected hepatitis cases to local health departments.

Signs and Symptoms of Hepatitis:

  • fever
  • fatigue, lethargy (weakness)
  • diarrhea
  • loss of appetite
  • nausea and vomiting
  • abdominal pain
  • jaundice (yellow skin and eyes)
  • dark urine
  • grey-colored feces
  • dry, itchy skin
  • muscle pain

 
If you suspect your child may have a case of hepatitis, call your child's physician or go to the nearest emergency room.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a warning about a Meningococcal outbreak affecting gay and bisexual men living with HIV in Florida.

Meningococcal disease is caused by an infection due to the bacteria Neisseria meningitidis. The bacterium can cause meningitis and a life-threatening blood infection called meningococcemia (septicemia).

Meningitis and meningococcemia are medical emergencies. Meningococcemia (sepsis) can kill in as little as a few hours.

What is Meningitis?

Meningitis is a potentially deadly and highly infectious disease that causes inflammation of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord.

Symptoms of meningitis include fever, headache, and neck stiffness, sensitivity to bright lights, nausea, vomiting, and confusion.

What is Meningococcemia Septicemia?

Meningococcemia is a deadly blood infection caused by the Neisseria meningitidis bacteria. It multiplies in the bloodstream and damages the walls of blood vessels causing multiple organ failure. Patients diagnosed with Meningococcemia septicemia are treated in the intensive care unit (ICU) isolation room to prevent infecting other patients in ICU.

Signs and symptoms of meningococcemia (sepsis) include flu-like symptoms, fever, chills, fatigue, weakness, nausea and/or vomiting, diarrhea, and severe aches and pains in the muscles, joints, chest and/or abdomen. Cold feet and hands usually appear before a skin rash.

Contact your health care provider or go to an emergency room if you are experiencing symptoms.

According to the CDC, gay and bisexual men living with HIV and other men who have sex with men should get the MenACWY vaccine ASAP if they live in Florida.

The CDC also recommends the vaccine for gay or bisexual men planning to visit Florida.

The Florida Department of Health in Leon County is investigating three confirmed cases of meningococcal disease in males in Tallahassee aged 18 to 22.

The CDC urges male college and university students, immunocompromised individuals, men living with HIV and other men who have sex with men to get vaccinated against the disease immediately.

Talk about overreacting: the Italian government locked down the entire country in a desperate effort to slow down the Coronavirus -- which many experts have said is no worse than the common flu for most healthy people.

Flights in and out of the country are suspended, and the government suspended mortgages for homes and businesses as families struggle to pay bills while they stay home from work.

"Yes, that will be the case, for individuals and households," said Laura Castelli, Italy's deputy economy minister.

Italy's banking lobby ABI said on Monday lenders representing 90 percent of total banking assets would offer debt moratoriums to small firms and households during the lockdown.

Heavily armed police roamed the streets of Milan and Naples to enforce the lockdown and maintain law and order in the streets. Officers warned residents to stay home. Any traveler arriving in the country by car are held in a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Residents are allowed to shop for groceries but few grocery stores are open, resulting in long lines. Only 3 shoppers are allowed in the stores at one time. Residents are ordered to stay at least 3 feet apart.

Irrational fears of the Coronavirus, aka Covid-19 or Coronavirus-2019, has spread around the world.

The U.S. stock market went into a free fall just after the opening bell on Monday, causing an emergency breaker to halt trading 15 minutes in.

The Milan stock market also took a pounding, falling 17 percent since the outbreak began in Italy.

The government confirmed 9,000 Coronavirus-19 cases and 463 dead as of Monday night. But many Italian people have not been tested.

The virus causes mild flu-like symptoms in most healthy adults under age 50. Children seem to be unaffected or have mild symptoms. No child under age 10 has died from the virus anywhere in the world.

Coronavirus-19 causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly population and those with chronic illness and weak immunity.

Here in Atlanta, Fulton County closed all schools after one teacher tested positive for the virus.

Critics point out that school closures will force parents to leave their children at home with their grandparents - the population most vulnerable to the virus.

Democrats fear President Trump will exercise his executive powers to postpone the November elections and remain in power amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Health officials in the U.S. report 500 cases in 26 states. The death toll stands at 22 -- all but one are elderly.

The news media continues to spread panic, despite 20,000 deaths from the common flu since December, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Democrats and liberals took to Twitter.com last week to suggest Trump may try to exploit the coronavirus outbreak to postpone the November elections.

Meanwhile, President Trump has accused Democrats like New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of attempting to politically weaponize the coronavirus outbreak to tank the economy and put the blame on him.

The president attacked Democratic governors who declared a state of emergency over one or 2 coronavirus cases in their states.

As the panic spread among Democratic stronghold cities, Americans saw dwindling supplies of food and essentials on store shelves.

But at a local Publix in a conservative area of Gwinnett County on Sunday, your auntie observed shelves fully stocked with water, paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, alcohol and bottles of Theraflu.

There was no sense of urgency or panic in the store, as shoppers exchanged smiles and greetings in the aisles.

Coronavirus causes flu-like symptoms among healthy people younger than 50. It causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly population.

Those most at risk are Asians, the elderly with chronic conditions, and those with weak immune systems (such as HIV patients).

If you have flu-like symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat), the CDC advises you to stay home and self-quarantine for 14 days. Wash your hands frequently, eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of fluids.

Go to the emergency room if you experience shortness of breath or chest pain.

A sick passenger was airlifted to a hospital from the stranded Grand Princess cruise ship anchored off the coast of California. The Coronavirus-stricken ship is carrying 3,500 passengers and crew. Most of the passengers are retirees in their 60s and 70s.

The "critically-ill" passenger was airlifted from the ship at 7:15 a.m. Saturday, the ship's captain announced.

"We have a guest who requires medical assistance at the moment, the Coast Guard has been called and the possible airlift of that guest may be possible tonight," the caption said Friday in a video clip obtained by KCRA.

All passengers have been asked to remain in their cabins. Menus are delivered to the cabins several times a day for passengers to place orders from room service.

"The ship will not come on shore until we appropriately assess the passengers," said California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The CDC confirmed 400 cases of Coronavirus in the United States. The death toll stands at 19 -- which pales in comparison to 20,000 deaths caused by influenza. Most of the Coronavirus deaths are people over age 70.

19 crew members and 2 passengers were found to have the Coronavirus in the initial round of testing. Only 46 people have been tested on the ship, Vice President Mike Pence announced during a press conference on Friday.

Pence said arrangements are being made to allow the ship to dock and all 3,500 passengers and crew will be tested before leaving the ship.

Those most at risk for the Coronavirus are Asians, the elderly (over age 60) with chronic illnesses (heart and respiratory conditions such as COPD) and anyone with a weak immune system (such as HIV-infected people).

Among the elderly with chronic illnesses, the virus causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia.

No child has died from Coronavirus anywhere in the world. Black people of African descent do not appear to be affected by the Coronavirus.

Infected people younger than 60 experience mild symptoms of cough and fever (below 101.5). Those who experience shortness of breath with fever over 101.5 should contact your doctor or go to the nearest emergency room.

If you have mild flu-like symptoms, the CDC requests you self-quarantine at home, wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. Drink plenty of fluids and eat a well-balanced diet. Infected people are contagious for up to 2 weeks before showing symptoms.

Barack Obama added his voice of reason to put an end to the misinformation and fear-mongering about the Coronavirus.

The Coronavirus has not turned out to be the Armageddon virus that health organizations predicted it would be.

The former U.S. president took to Twitter.com on Thursday to call for calm and to urge common sense as the virus spreads among the populace in metropolitan cities.

FYI about face masks: The flimsy masks that are sold to the public won't do you any good. Respirator masks worn by healthcare workers are adjusted to fit their faces to prevent air leaks. They also wear eye protection with the masks. Health care workers are not at risk of running out of face masks. Medical supply companies that supply respirator masks to hospitals are not open to the public.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar on Wednesday confirmed "the more elderly and medically frail" are the ones more likely to "succumb" to the virus.

During an appearance on Fox News Channel's "America's Newsroom" Azar said, "For most of us, the risk of getting the Coronavirus is low and it remains that way. We're learning more every day, every hour."

Most healthy people who get the Coronavirus will have mild to moderate symptoms. Azar cautioned those with respiratory symptoms to stay home and wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water.

The people most at risk are the elderly population and those with weak immune systems or chronic illnesses.

You're more likely to be sickened by the flu virus than the Coronavirus.

Dr. Drew Pinsky, also known as "Dr. Drew", slammed the national news media for overreacting to the Coronavirus, leading people to panic buy food and medical supplies.

"We're not overreacting, the press is overreacting, and it makes me furious," Dr. Drew said during an appearance on Daily Blast Live last month.

"The press should not be reporting medical stories as though they know how to report it," he continued.

"If we have a pandemic, I won't know how to tell that we're actually having a pandemic because everything is an emergency."

"The press needs to shut up because you're more likely to die of influenza right now."

In a follow-up call to Daily Blast Live this week, Dr. Drew questioned why the press is ignoring the flu epidemic that killed 16,000 people so far."

"Let me frame it this way: We have in the United States 24 million cases of flu-like illness, 180,000 hospitalizations, 16,000 dead from influenza. Why is that not being reported? Why isn't the message: get your flu shot?"

"There are people walking around out there with the virus that don't even know they have it it's so mild," said Dr. Drew.

"Where was the press during the Mediterranean corona[virus] outbreak where the fatality rate was 41%? If they wanted to get crazed about something, why didn't they get crazed about MERS or SARS? This is an overblown press-created hysteria."

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar on Wednesday confirmed "the more elderly and medically frail" are the ones more likely to "succumb" to the virus.

Four more people have died from the Coronavirus in Washington state, raising the death toll there to 6, officials confirmed Monday, March 2.

The four deaths are elderly women in their 70s and 80s, King County Public Health confirmed. All 6 Coronavirus deaths in the U.S. are in the Kirkland, Washington area.

Four of the deaths are residents in the Life Care Center nursing facility in Kirkland. Four other residents and an employee in the nursing facility are infected with the virus.

50 people in the nursing facility are being tested for the virus. Officials say they will open isolation centers in Kirkland in an effort to contain the virus.

There are at least 18 cases in Washington state, with at least 14 cases in King County and four in Snohomish County.

The Coronavirus, dubbed Covid-19, is still not as deadly as the common flu virus, which has killed 10,000 Americans this flu season. The CDC expects 40,000 deaths from the influenza virus by the end of the flu season.

Influenza virus and Covid-19 are highly contagious virus that cause serious respiratory problems. But Covid-19 also attacks the heart and kidneys - two organs that express ACE2 enzymes, which the virus needs to enter human cells.

Black people of African descent have less ACE2 enzymes than Caucasians. So we are not at risk. Children have much less ACE2 than we do, so they are not affected. No child under age 10 has died from the coronavirus anywhere in the world.

People who are most at risk are the elderly and those with weak immune systems.

The important thing to remember is most people younger than 50 who were infected with the coronavirus have fully recovered.

The CDC offers the following tips to avoid spreading the flu or Covid-19 virus:

1. Wash your hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds
2. Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
3. Avoid close contact with sick people
4. Stay home if you are sick
5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, refrigerator handles, etc.

Hundreds lined up outside Costco stores on both coasts to buy food, water and other essentials amid Coronavirus fears as 2nd death in U.S. is confirmed.

Americans as far away as Hawaii were in panic mode, stripping store shelves bare of water and bread. Costco stores in Washington state, where the first Coronavirus death was reported last week, purchased every pallet of water and toilet paper.

A YouTube video showed hundreds of people standing in the freezing cold outside a Costco store at 9 a.m. in Brooklyn, NY, on Saturday.

Another video shows panic shoppers grabbing economy size rolls of toilet paper off shelves at a Costco store in Seattle, Washington.

President Trump urged people to remain calm on Friday, but his words fell on deaf ears.

Despite earlier reports of hundreds of deaths in China alone, the Wuhan coronavirus (aka Covid-19) has not turned out to be the deadly pathogen that some experts had predicted.

The typical flu virus, for which there is a vaccine, has killed over 14,000 people so far in the U.S. alone.

19 million Americans have been sickened by the flu and 40,000 are expected to die by the time flu season is over, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Yet no one is panicking over catching the flu.

The coronavirus kills 1% of infected people globally. Most of the deaths are elderly people and those with weakened immune systems.

Influenza virus and Covid-19 are highly contagious virus that cause serious respiratory problems. But Covid-19 also attacks the heart and kidneys - two organs that express ACE2 enzymes, which the virus needs to enter human cells.

Most people infected with the coronavirus have recovered. The coronavirus has killed a grand total of 2 people in the U.S. - yet people are in panic mode.

Even if the coronavirus kills 1,000 more people in the U.S. (which isn't likely to happen) - that statistic would still pale in comparison to deaths caused by the typical flu virus in America.

The CDC offers the following tips to avoid spreading the flu or Covid-19 virus: wash your hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds; don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands; avoid close contact with sick people; stay home if you are sick; clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, refrigerator handles, etc.

President Trump announced he will hold a Coronavirus press conference this evening, a day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned the virus outbreak in the US will be bad.

Trump will hold a press conference from the White House at 6 PM ET.

Trump made the announcement on Twitter.com after the Democrats said he was dragging his feet on handling the coronavirus.

Trump attacked the liberal media for "panicking the markets" following two straight days of heavy selling on Wall Street.

The president said he his working hard to respond to the fast-spreading COVID-19 virus, including considering appointing a coronavirus czar to lead the battle to contain the outbreak.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. is 57, including 36 who came from the infected Diamond Princess cruise ship.

The coronavirus was reportedly developed in a level 4 biohazard laboratory in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak which began in December.

The virus uses ACE2 receptors to enter the human body. Some people have more ACE2 receptors and are more vulnerable to the infection than others. The risk for infection is low for those who have less ACE2 receptors.

Health experts ask people who have a mild case of coronavirus to stay home to prevent infecting others. There is no cure and no vaccine for the COVID-19 virus.
