Monkeypox appears to be the midterm variant


Just The NewsPresident Joe Biden on Sunday said that "everybody should be concerned about" monkeypox after the World Health Organization confirmed more than 80 cases worldwide.

The president said monkeypox "is something that everybody should be concerned about." The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week a U.S. resident tested positive after traveling to Canada. The agency is also monitoring several monkeypox clusters reported over the last few weeks in Europe and North America, where the virus is not typically reported.

"We’re working on it hard to figure out what we do and what vaccine, if any, may be available for it," Biden stressed.

Guess who was working on monkeypox?

Gateway PunditThe Wuhan Institute of Virology assembled a monkeypox virus genome, allowing the virus to be identified through PCR tests, using a method researchers flagged for potentially creating a “contagious pathogen,” The National Pulse can reveal.

The study was first published in February 2022, just months before the latest international outbreak of monkeypox cases which appear to have now reached the United States.

The paper, which was authored by nine Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers and published in the lab’s quarterly scientific journal Virologica Sinica, also follows the wide-scale use of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests to identify COVID-19-positive individuals.

Don't panic. They want you to panic.
