A coalition of LGBT organizations called on the Biden administration on Wednesday to expand testing and vaccine access for the monkeypox virus, warning that if no action is taken, California could become the epicenter for the disease.
In a letter addressed to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky, the coalition raised alarm over the number of monkeypox cases — also known as hMPXV — that are effecting men who have sex with men and the transgender community.
Thus far, the United States has recorded close to 2,000 monkeypox cases, according to the groups. Of those, California has 267 confirmed cases. Experts say that the number of cases is almost certainly higher due to the lack of testing.
“As of July 15, 2022, San Francisco had 86 known cases and Los Angeles County reported 109 known cases. Given a number of factors — including difficulty accessing testing and lack of awareness from both patients and providers about hMPVX — these numbers are likely a vast underestimate of the true number of hMPXV cases,” the groups wrote.
In the press release, the coalition warned that should the federal government fail to ramp up testing and access to vaccines, California could become the epicenter of virus in the U.S.
“The rate of infection and unmet needs will slowly push California to become the epicenter of the virus. Though hMPXV is known to have a short incubation period and is not fatal, fear of the virus is growing,” the groups wrote….
The above comes from a July 20 posting on The Hill.
“the coalition warned that should the federal government fail to ramp up testing and access to vaccines, California could become the epicenter of virus in the U.S”
Well…herein lies the problem. It isn’t what the gov’t does that will make California become the epicenter of the virus…It’s what these men are doing. The insane thing is, this government agrees with them.
It’s because the gays have frequent promiscuous sex with strangers. Not hard to figure out, as long as you’re being honest in your analysis and don’t let pro-gay ideology bias your thinking.
Gay men are highly promiscuous. Thats a fact. They are the near-exclusive spreaders of monkeypox. Let’s be honest.
Honesty and the LGBT syndicate are a contradiction in terms
An animal disease contracted by men who are performing animal behavior.
As a taxpaying citizen why am I supposed to get excited about this?
It would be just too unthinkable to ramp up behavioral guidelines, ” just say no” style. The dioceses need to act or they will have a few empty parishes on short notice, no more teen events sponsored at favorite hangout
I don’t see any PRIDE flags waving in that crowd.
Remember boys: If you go against Nature, Nature will go against you.
California is monkeypox center. California is gay center. They amount to saying the same thing.
Transsexuals are confused
Those guys line up to get jabbed but won’t control themselves chasing male tail at the bathhouse or gay bar or on grindr. Makes no sense. Stay away from San Francisco for many reasons. That’s just one of them.
I rec on mend that everyone read legitimate sources to learn how monkeypox is transmitted. It you think it is only through sex, you could end up with a bad case of it yourself. But hey, let’s redo all the COVID disinformation traps while we’re at it.
Not really YFC, I doubt anyone on this board frequents a bath house…just like AIDS, monkey pox is mostly spread by the sin of sodom
Come off it. It’s primarily a gay male disease, just like AIDS was/is. Transmission outside of gay sex is possible but extremely unlikely. Saying it’s not a gay disease is intended both not to disparage gays and to get funding for research and treatments. Come off it. Stop misleading. Gays are responsible for monkeypox, as they were responsible for AIDS.
I’m curious, “it is gays” are you vaccinated and boosters against SARS-Co-V2 ?
Irrelevant, SARS-Co- V2 is not spread by sodomy
The government and medical establishment are lying that everyone is susceptible to getting monkeypox just as they lied about everyone being susceptible to covid. They lie. And you’ve swallowed it.
It amazes me how consistently wrong or deliberately misleading you are, YFC.
I looked it up.
ahahahh.. YFC is my “opposite” weather vane. Like the MSM, if YFC says one thing, your best bet in all situations is do the precise opposite of what he says. If I recall correctly, YFC was a big fan of “social distancing”, “masks”, and the death vaxx too.
You give him that much power over you?
Oh he could really have fun now that you told him.
I’m sure he is too good of a person to mess with you too much.
I’m your huckleberry.
I apologize. I should not have written that.
YFC was the cheer leader for all 3, what the next “thing” is YFC will promote it
#6: Vatican II
#7: Care for our common homeland
Just gettin started!
So. YFC next thing is…. climate change?
What I tell ya.
YFC, you are wrongly criticized for your stands on public health.
I assume that you believe all the tenets of the Creed.
Where I have found that most Catholics disagree is in how seriously to take Scripture and how seriously to take the Catechism and how seriously to take the Magisterium.
And then on how seriously to take other things such as bishop’s guidance and the pope’s guidance (prudential matters, prudential judgements, organizational and employment matters.)

Pat, I’d like to buy an “A” and solve the three-letter word puzzle.
Some years back, Castro street was crowded with gay men, partners holding hands, gays crowding the bars and onto the sidewalks. Today, as we passed down Castro on our way home, there was about a dozen pedestrians, including a group of tourists taking pictures. So what happened to the crowds of gay guys? (Of course, we all know) Looks as if there will be even less next year…
They moved from the Castro into teaching in public schools to groom a new generation of replacements.
Try the “vegan- organic” approach: Just say “No to sodomy”. No vaccines needed…
Beware of the news reports that children are getting monkeypox without revealing the means of transmission. Remember that a 27-year-old illegal alien “loved” a pregnancy into a 9-year-old girl. How many gays are “loving” monkeypox into kids?
Now the WHO has declared monkeypox a global emergency. What a laugh. A gay man’s disease spread almost exclusively through sodomy is a world crisis. The gayification of the world elite is almost complete thanks to Gayanon.
Saint Peter: Hey Boss, you see what them guys in L.A. and ‘Frisco are doin’ ??
The Good Lord: A Pox on them Monkeys.
Well, that’s it. Everyone stay indoors, mask up, and cease the male-male booty jamming. Time for mail-in ballots. Don’t ask any questions.
I got Rosita’d by a Catholic gay ministry. Just want to say that.
What does it mean to be “Rosita’d”?
There is a video all over the news of the Sesame Street Place character Rosita as she refuses to engage with two little girls.
