Monkeypox outbreak in US now world’s biggest after mistakes like COVID

No one quite knows the full extent of the outbreak after testing, data gathering, and delays in vaccine rollout led to the monkeypox spread in the US

The story of monkeypox feels hopelessly to experts as a replay of the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

It took too long to start testing. The data has not disclosed the full extent of the outbreak. The spread was not stopped quickly.

Monkeypox should have been isolated, because it is so hard to transmit, treatments and vaccines were already available, little was known about a virus first described in 1958And so many lessons were reportedly learned from COVID-19.
