The latest and most extensive study on the origins of Covid-19 has concluded it definitely did not come from the Wuhan Lab but from a animal to human transfer at the Wuhan Markets as originally and correctly identified by Chinese authorities. There has been little reporting on this I suspect mainly due to the fact it runs counter to the popular conspiracy theory and anti Chinese narrative peddled mainly on the right.

The report also concludes there may have actually been two separate transfers that triggered the global pandemic."

I'm only saying what "free" scientists believe. Main stream media have to say what they are told so as not to upset those in power; it's the same the world over.

That article is a lot of conjecture - the unnamed source said and somebody secretly confided something......

You are not saying what free scientists believe at all - you are repeating conspiracy theories with no evidence to back them up :S

how is the fact only one company, headquarters in Denmark, has a vaccine convenient or relevant??

Strange isn't it that since covid appeared there has been so much secrecy, unnamed sources, data with held from view, suspicions , conspiracy theories , alternative views banned , doctors & scientists losing their jobs etc etc ; all in the so called free world.
Anyway the thread is about Monkeypox and the fact only one co has a vaccine has no relevance unless you are an investor which many higher up the food chain are as we saw with covid vaccines.

Two vaccines are currently approved in the U.S. that can provide protection against monkeypox, the Jynneos vaccine known as Imvamune/Imvanex in Europe, and ACAM2000, an older smallpox vaccine.

The Jynneos vaccine is produced by Bavarian Nordic, a small company in Denmark.
The vaccine is for the prevention of smallpox and monkeypox disease in adults ages 18 and older who are at high risk for infection with either virus. It was approved in Europe in 2013 and by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2019.

The same misinformation, conjecture, and conspiracy theories were common when AIDS first started showing up..
Difference *then* was that we didn't have the internet...

Strange that there have been so many conspiracy theories about Covid? - maybe.

Hopefully monkeypox doesn't attract the same and people stick to actual facts.

The various Governments and Health Organisations that deal with these things need to get their acts together now to nip this in the bud before it becomes a pandemic. Imagine the after affects of blisters and sores all over the body of an elderly person, the physical and mental trauma and what it might cost to deal with the infected skin. All the talk , conjecture and blame won’t help as it begins to get a foothold in society. Get on with tackling it. Apparently the virus is not complex, therefore not an unstoppable force.

If what we are told is correct, we now have another epidemic which has been spread through promiscuity. (Just saying!)

Not necessarily :dry: touching clothing, bedding or towels used by someone with monkeypox and
the coughs or sneezes of a person with monkeypox when they're close to you.
