That's almost likely asking whether we should be worried about Canada invading the U.S.

I think it's far more likely to be the other way around regarding the invasion, for reasons I've discussed on this forum.

For the question at hand, no. Not because there shouldn't be, but because there's no political appetite for any.

It would be like instituting the death penalty as a deterrence against speed-limit violations.

No, it's voluntary to wear a mask and there won't be any shutdowns of movie theatres and Sports STDs and bars but Churches they are doing zoom you can go to church or do zoom
.
We all been vaccinated and you can live with AIDS now they have insulin as well as meds but that's a horrible disease that's why it's good to do abstinence unless you are in a relationship

No.

1. The public would not accept it.

2. Monkeypox doesn't even spread the same way as covid, so it wouldn't make sense.

No, although a very small minority at my university are trying to use this to get a campus wide mask mandate again. They 100% wonít be successful lmao.

Some states like California, New York, Illinois, Oregon, Hawaii, and DC will likely lockdown over Monkeypox, but my and large, there wonít be much in the way of lockdowns in the US regarding Monkeypox.

Living in New York I'm worried that this is going to become a thing because some people just have to get their virtue signaling in and love saying that you're "literally murdering people" for going outside and touching grass. There's no good reason for there to be one.

No there wont be lockdowns, that would be overkill considering we already have the vaccine and it doesnít spread so well.
Its horrid because we have the f**king vaccine the fault is entirely on our government not taking it seriously early enough. F**k Joe Biden, that senile idiot will be safe while a public health crisis that was preventable becomes endemic and f**ks at risk populations. Disgusting excuse of a man who has failed America. I hope things improve and distribution/production isnít as slow as many expect but at this rate itís downright sad.

That's a lame-ass low-energy proposal.

Iíll bet $10 then regarding the lockdowns. If there arenít any lockdowns, I will pay you $10.

As I wrote earlier...

For a disease that is neither particularly serious* nor especially contagious, which is only seriously spreading in a narrow section of the population and which can be treated very easily? This, frankly, is little more than hysterical hypochondria.

*Except to the extent that any disease (including the Common Cold) can be if the patient is sufficiently vulnerable.

The section itís spreading in is poor and they donít have easy access to the healthcare needed to make it not a serious issue. Itís not a pandemic like COVID but since healthcare and life isnít a right in the US to the born, here we are.

Kudos to him for seeing nuance and realizing that two separate diseases with different transmission methods and rates warrant a different response, right?

^Wrong. Kudos to him for exploiting a system where one can be a complete hypocrite with zero honor and still maintain a platform.

It's hypocritical to treat different diseases differently? That's a new one.

In Wiener's case, yes. He sounds hysterical with respect to one virus and reasonable with respect to the other, and this change in tone is dictated solely by his politics. Your carrying water for this hackery is solely dictated by your politics, too.

The downsides outweighing the benefits by far is often not much of a guarantee against a public health policy, if the past few years are anything to go by.
