Well, folks, hope you are ready for pandemic 2.0 because that is precisely what the radical leftists in the White House — like President Joe Biden — are doing their best to transform this whole monkeypox thing into, as evidenced by the fact our country’s government has now declared the illness a public health emergency, according to information stated by the health secretary on Thursday.
The move will likely free up some extra cash and other tools to combat the disease. At least that’s what they’ll tell us anyway.
So guess how many cases we have in the U.S. of this disease right now that inspired this declaration? Try 6,600, almost all of them homosexual men who have had sexual intercourse with other men.
But if you dare mention that, well, you’re a homophobe.

“We’re prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus, and we urge every American to take monkeypox seriously,” Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra went on to say during the briefing. The declaration will also help improve the availability of monkeypox data, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said, speaking alongside Bacerra.
The World Health Organization has also dubbed monkeypox a “public health emergency of international concern,” its highest alert level. The WHO declaration last month was designed to trigger a coordinated international response and could unlock funding to collaborate on vaccines and treatments.
Biden earlier this month appointed two top federal officials to coordinate his administration’s response to monkeypox, following declarations of emergencies by California, Illinois and New York.
First identified in monkeys in 1958, the disease has mild symptoms including fever, aches and pus-filled skin lesions, and people tend to recover from it within two to four weeks, according to the World Health Organization. It spreads through close physical contact and is rarely fatal.
