Belgium has become the first country to introduce a compulsory 21-day quarantine for monkeypox patients after reporting four cases of the disease in the last week.
Belgian health authorities took the decision on Friday, after consulting with WHO officials, according to Belgian media. At the moment Monkeypox contact cases are not required to self-isolate but have been told to use 'social distancing' particularly if they are in contact with vulnerable people.
Monkeypox is a disease in the same family as smallpox and symptoms include a distinct bumpy rash, a fever, sore muscles and a headache. Monkeypox is less deadly than smallpox, but, according to the WHO, has a mortality rate up to 6 percent, which it is now repeating in press releases to the media.
On Saturday, the World Health Organisation reported that there were 92 confirmed cases in 12 different countries, with another 28 suspected cases under investigation. Cases of monkeypox have been confirmed in the U.K., Portugal, Sweden, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, the U.S., Canada and Australia.
The WHO warned that cases of the monkeypox virus could accelerate in the coming months, as the virus spread across Europe, with the European regional director suggesting that “All but one of the recent cases have no relevant travel history to areas where monkeypox is endemic,”.
Mentioning its origins is 'racist'.
The media are already attempting to control the narrative around Monkeypox with references to the Nigerian who brought the virus into Britain being expunged from the internet because of its supposed 'racist' overtones. Stock photos of black people with the disease have also been labelled 'racist' on social media.
Links to Covid vaccine just a 'conspiracy theory'.
Fact Checkers are also very quick to dismiss any link between Monkeypox and Covid vaccines, despite the fact that, in several studies, as well as Pfizer's own secret papers, the mRNA 'vaccine' has been proven to inhibit natural immunity making people unable to fight off diseases such as Monkeypox.
