The White House coronavirus response coordinator said Friday that the “average person” needn’t worry about contracting monkeypox because 98% of cases occur in gay or bisexual men.
dr Ashish Jha commented on “Morning Joe” while being interviewed by Mika Brzezinski.
“This is a virus that we’ve known about for maybe fifty, sixty years, so it’s not a novel virus. We have about 6,600 cases here in the United States. Luckily no one has died from this disease and obviously we are going to hope that the serious illness remains minor, we will do everything we can to make it happen,” said Jha.
“Right now about 98% of cases are in gay and bisexual men, spread through prolonged skin-to-skin contact, so I don’t think it’s anything for the average person to worry about,” he added.
“It’s not easy to spread, there is a theoretical risk that it can spread via surfaces, but we don’t see that,” Jha concluded. “Right now we’re really seeing almost all of the spread through prolonged skin-to-skin contact.”
Jha also responded to some of the criticism leveled at the Biden administration over monkeypox, saying that the US has procured more monkeypox vaccines than the rest of the world combined.
On Thursday, the Biden administration declared the monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency to expedite procurement and delivery of the vaccine.
Critics of the Biden administration have contrasted the response to the coronavirus crisis, including a lockdown across the economy, with the response to monkeypox, which has not included a ban on gay orgies, where many of the cases originate.
Jha also credited the Biden administration for the fact that most people seem to have moved on from the coronavirus, which he called a good thing.
