faaaaaak, 3-6% fatality? That's huge and massive.



Where do they get their figures? Wiki page for monkeypox lists 27,125 confirmed cases and 11 deaths (0.04% of *confirmed* cases resulted in death) in the 2022 outbreak so far.

Really, Barney is the only one here who needs to worry. Yes technically it’s not a std and technically anyone can get it, but in practice this current outbreak is primarily affecting a particular subset of people engaging in a particular subset of activities - so just don’t attend any anonymous sex parties for a while or fondle anyone with weird boils and you prob be just fine

I’m genuinely curious how they came up with that 3-6% figure.

Saw this University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy article from 7/20/22 saying at the time there was ~14k confirmed cases and 5 deaths. That’s half more recent timeline numbers but death rate is still 0.03% on confirmed cases.

yeah, this is a massive gap. I really don't think Wiki is credible though, as a default stance.

No idea what to make of it.

i just went in a meeting (video) wearing a beach shirt, and my beard is really long and all over the place, and one of my colleagues said I look like a fock machine. lol, on the same day you guys think i'm at risk for monkeypox. So funny

That really is a massive discrepancy. I was thinking it might be much more fatal in Africa, but I don't see any evidence of that being the case. I have no idea what's going on with those numbers... typo?

I would assume that (and everything else) is more fatal in Africa just cuz of terrible health care in general

But I don’t know how to speak to monkeypox if asked. I told Emily to not go near anyone with dots or spots

I guess that’s all I can do

Wanted to bring her to amusement park and water parks in Maine this month. Probably still save

Nah, you should go. I’m betting this gets worse before it gets better, it could take a while.

So if I get it, much like throat cancer, people will automatically assume I’m getting some, yes?

Pretty much.

We talked about Biden getting COVID for a couple minutes and then the kids asked, "well, what would you think if Biden got Monkeypox?" Without missing a beat I said "Biden's gay?"

It’s been getting compared with AIDS due to the primary demographic affected and process of transmission, but not nearly as deadly as AIDS when that first hit the scene.

Barney, I feel like your fear factor on this one is a bit overboard. We’re talking about less than 30k confirmed cases *worldwide*. (Ya I don’t take Wiki as gospel either, but CDC lists roughly the same number they did: https://www.cdc.gov/poxvirus/monkeypox/ ... d-map.html ). If you’re not fondling people with visible boils (which I personally wouldn’t do even without monkeypox in the news) and you’re not having a ton of anonymous sex with strangers, you’re more likely to win the lotto than catch monkeypox.

We stopped in Albuquerque for dinner and I tell my son to look up a good mexican restaurant. We pull up and can tell as we drive by that the place is packed. We get in and grab the last table. I look around and EVERYONE (no hyperbole) is white. This does not bode well
