The U.K. health authorities have confirmed a case of #monkeypox, a rare viral #infection. It was detected in a person with a recent travel history to #Nigeria where they are believed to have caught it.

The monkeypox virus is an orthopoxvirus, which is a genus of viruses that also includes the variola virus, which causes smallpox. Monkeypox is a #zoonosis, a disease that is transmitted from infected animals to humans.

Don't get me wrong, I know that herbs help back in the day our elders used things like this to help us get through any sickness, but it's not a cure, it just helps you get through it. It still takes about the same amount of time to get over it, as it does without taking any herbs, it's just makes it easier to go through it, so I think it's good that you're giving these people, those recipes to help you get through the virus but it's not a cure and I do have a problem with people saying, it's a cure, and their saying it cures other diseases. I'm sorry, but it's doesn't, it may help you with inflammation and even some pain, but it will not cure diseases. I have a rare genetic form of cerebral palsy and have used things like this whenever I've been sick. Whenever I was sick from it would make it easier to go through, but I still sick about the same amount of time it was supposed to go through, it would just make it easier, but it definitely doesn't help my CP or my spasms, it does help with inflammation, and I think that's what people need to understand, but the best defense against things like this is always going to be a vaccine, just like the COVID vaccine is the best thing to do so that you can get thru it a lot easier people think that it's to prevent you from getting COVID no not really, it just makes the symptoms of it a lot more manageable, and it has a higher survival rate, and that's what people need to understand. When I can, I will be getting the monkey pox vaccine, I think it's great that you're helping people to feel better when they're sick, but they need to understand, it's not a cure, it just helps I'm not trying to disrespect you or anybody else on here. This is how I feel I've used these things before they do help you get through it, but it's not a cure, and I wish that people wouldn't say it is, it just helps you get through any type of sickness. It won't help things like what I have, so I'm not trying to disrespect anybody this is just how I feel about it and everybody has a right to how they feel about it and their own opinion.

East Afrika says:

They know how to blame Afrikans yet Monkeypox virus (MPXV) was discovered in 1958 during an outbreak in an animal facility in Copenhagen, Denmark, not in Afrika, meaning they deliberately took it to Afrika
