Almost 90% of US mpox-related deaths were in Black men, and nearly all had weakened immune systems, CDC reports. By Kyla Russell.
Remember the monkeypox scare? It was obvious they were not telling us something, that they were lying by omission. A year later we find:
From May 2022 to March 2023, 30,235 people in the US were diagnosed with mpox, previously known as monkeypox. Thirty-eight deaths were linked to mpox; 36 of them were men, and 33 were Black men. The average age of those who died was 34.
Mpox spreads through close contact, and it can infect anyone. during the 2022 outbreak, infections were mostly among gay or bisexual men or other men who have sex with men.
Most people hospitalized for severe cases of mpox were Black men with uncontrolled HIV that may have caused a weakened immune system.
They knew that at the time.
