Post Covid-19. The new epidemic of 2022 will be called monkeypox. The United States currently has the highest number of infections with this deadly virus. U.S. Health experts say the virus will last forever.
Criticize the Biden administration for not ordering enough vaccines and speeding up treatment by increasing the availability of testing.
The outbreak began in Massachusetts on this May 17th and reached more than 13,500 last week.
The United States has the highest rate of monkeypox in the world, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. New York has 2,744, followed by California with 2,663 and Florida with 1,372, for a total of 14, 1156 confirmed cases statewide as of Friday.
Whether the Biden administration survived the initial hardships or wasted too much time remains to be seen. However, the mishandling of monkey pox has created a wide gap between CDC expectations and existing reality.
CDC Director Rochelle Wallenski acknowledged that “expectations were not fully met at the defining moment,” prioritizing rapid data sharing along with a strong message to bring the epidemic to the public’s attention. Note that the United States had to designate the monkeypox outbreak as a public health emergency to highlight the increased risk.
The U.S. government’s missteps affect the entire process, from diagnosis to treatment. For example, misleading test parameters, reduced availability of testing and treatment, enhanced spread of the virus in the community, and underestimation of the impact of the epidemic on the population.
Vaccines are misallocated and severely restricted due to 20 million expiry dates in strategic national supplies, delays in ordering, and failures to test and approve vaccines by the Food and Drug Administration. In northern Bavaria, Denmark. Testing at one new facility found most of the 1.4 million vaccines ordered by the United States in early 2020, before the monkey pox epidemic.
