A UK patient is said to have contracted monkeypox after visiting Nigeria according to reports from the Public Health England (PHE) and was transferred to a specialist infectious disease center. World Health Organisation terms the condition as similar to human smallpox and although it is much milder, it can be fatal.
Health officials are already implementing “rapid infection control procedures” and contacting passengers who travelled in close proximity to the patient on the same flight to the UK. They say the infection is usually a self-limiting illness and most people recover within a few weeks, however, severe illness can occur in some individuals, and that it does not spread easily between people and the risk to the general public in England is very low.
But folks won’t keep it together bearing in mind that it is Monkeypox all the way from Africa, a continent that a number of them do not fancy.
1. Damn! Everyone will be getting an anti monkeypox injection already
Get ready… Corbyn will be offering free monkey pox jabs for everyone tomorrow…

2. Bananas had to come up
A banana a day keeps the monkeypox away.

3. Anyone but a Briton.
U.K. patient? Totally meaningless status. More like bush meat eating immigrant aids in the jump of virus from primate to humans via living exactly as they do in..where else..fucking Nigeria! Then travels back to spread fear & chaos under Brit status! That’s how it happens folks!

4. Someone just pointed a finger at environmentalists and conservatives.
The Green Party are solely responsible for this outbreak. Constantly promoting Trees and Animals over people and now this Monkey disease is spreading through Hastings and the Rye basin

5. Some thoughts though!
I’ve heard it makes you babble incoherently and unable to tell the truth, so 2+2… Is it Boris Johnson?
