I feel bad even responding to this thread because I still don't really understand why this forum is suddenly having a meltdown about such a monumental non-event. I mean, we are just finishing of a third spell of freak hot temperatures, forest fires across Europe, floods in the USA - maybe our continuing collective reluctance to do anything about this is a slightly bigger issue?

But surely if we have learnt anything from Covid it's that closing borders doesn't keep an infectious disease out of a society that it is already circulating in. In practice, the border closures were one of the cruellest and most inhumane of the anti-covid policies that were put in place, and in some cases maintained for years, and that served no purpose other than to look like you were doing something while simultaneously achieving nothing at all.

Maybe itís because monkey pox is more likely to affect people working in the media or people they know than flooding, forest fires, or heat waves (as they works indoor with AC).
