Dengue Fever spreading around CM, seems we need to be on mosquito alert. Funny that the article doesn't say it is spread by the Tiger Mosquito. 

Monkey Pox is also in CM and possible to spread, and this is thank you primarily from non hetero sexual males, not to forgot the ones who can testdrive any hole of sexual orientation as well. Not that I have problem with them as I do have some as friends, but I do when they are lax or irresponsdible, so more caution on their part needs to be taken as it is probably more easily spread with the cold and fly season coming up.

Be carfeful and aware of your surrounding and people around you. Sneezes and coughs can count. Sound familiar from the last 3 years?

Monkeypox can spread from:

Animals to humans through direct contact with any animal that bites. Contact with bodily fluids, including blood, puss, and saliva from infected animal can introduce the virus into humans as well as eating uncooked infected meat.

Humans to humans transmission occur from direct contact with droplets from coughing sneezing, rashes, pusses, and other infectious bodily fluids, which tend to come from sharing items.
