The hidden Monkeypox pandemic in non-endemic (highly vaccinated) regions
On the 3rd of November 2022, the global count of monkeypox cases stands at 77,573. Only 925 cases are in regions that historically report monkeypox. Could there be an association in highly vaccinated regions?
Is this a legitimate scientific question?
At the onset of the monkeypox outbreak, I requested data on the covid vaccination status of affected individuals.
The reason was simple, just to ensure there was not a potential correlation between covid vaccination and the spread of monkeypox in non-endemic regions of the world.
In the video below, which was recorded on the 3rd of August 2022, focused on a review of the monkeypox technical briefing coming out of the UK. I highlight that there is a strong connection between cases of monkeypox and currently on HIV antiviral therapy. These patterns should not be ignored.
The monkeypox update at the beginning of November is worrying as it reflects a global pandemic which continues to expand.
Let us consider the most concerning scenario:
Imagine if over 90% of monkeypox cases are in individuals who had a covid vaccine. This could suggest that there may be a direct correlation between the vaccine and potential of getting infected with monkeypox. This data would have to be correlated to monkeypox exposure and other mitigating factors.
If there are some issues too important to consider, we are not doing science, we are doing politics.
