The World Health Organization is going to reconvene and make a decision on the monkeypox outbreak. The WHO met on June 27th and decided to not declare this outbreak a global public health emergency, however, that could change soon.
A WHO so-called Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) is the highest alarm that the WHO can sound for an outbreak. The United Nations health agency’s director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he would hold a second meeting of the emergency committee on monkeypox, with more than 6,000 cases now confirmed in 58 countries, according to a report by Science Alert.
“I continue to be concerned by the scale and spread of the virus,” Tedros told a press conference from the WHO’s headquarters in Geneva. “Testing remains a challenge and it’s highly probable that there are a significant number of cases not being picked up.”
And we all know by now why the rulers want “testing” for viruses. It’s a means to panic the public with numbers. We saw this go on with the COVID-19 scamdemic.
“My teams are following the data. I plan to reconvene the emergency committee so they’re updated on the current epidemiology and evolution of the monkeypox outbreak, and implementation of counter measures,” Tedros said. “I will bring them together in the week of July 18 or sooner if needed.”
They are also giving us obvious hints as to why they need testing and numbers to increase. It’s still all about getting shots in people.

Tedros said Europe was the current epicenter of the outbreak, recording more than 80 percent of monkeypox cases globally this year.
More than 6,000 cases of monkeypox have now been reported from 58 countries in the current outbreak, the World Health Organization said.
The fatality rate in previous outbreaks in Africa of the strain currently spreading has been around 1%, but so far this outbreak seems to be less lethal in the non-endemic countries, according to a Fox News report.
