Once again, the left-wing media has been caught in a blatant act of propaganda and with something as potentially serious as monkeypox.
The report notes:
Health authorities in Spain have issued an alert over a possible outbreak of monkeypox after 23 people showed symptoms compatible with the viral infection, which has already been detected in the UK and Portugal.
The health ministry cautioned that the suspected cases – all in the Madrid region – had yet to be confirmed, but said a nationwide alert had been issued “to guarantee a swift, coordinated and timely response.”
The regional health department in the capital of Madrid said that the suspected cases are being analyzed by the National Microbiology Center in order to come up with an official diagnosis.
“Generally speaking, monkeypox is spread by respiratory transmission, but the characteristics of the 23 suspected cases point towards transmission through mucus during sexual relations,” the health department noted in a statement.
“The people involved are doing well and are isolating at home, but a close eye is being kept on them in case they need hospital treatment.”
Okay, so far, so good, right?
Health authorities believe that around 23 “people” are infected, they are doing fine, isolating at home, and all the known cases thus far were spread via mucus during sexual relations.
