Hi, can I just thank y'all for actually showing this on dark skin? It's amazing how many of the symptoms for diseases and infections look so different or aren't really visible on dark skin and no one talks about that.

Great video with clear information but personally I think that if they explained more about the severity of the scars left on the skin people would be more cautious.

As someone who’s had monkey pox and having faced the stigma thats already around it, this video is very much a relief to see

Good video no scare mongering just telling you how to properly avoid the disease and informing you there is a viral vaccine.

I’m glad they’re spreading more awareness. There’s a lot of blond fear surrounding the virus and I think education is important 🙏🏽

How many weeks after the pox have cleared does the monkeypox virus remain in seminal fluid ? (for those that don't realize, some viruses - like Ebola - can remain viable and infectious in seminal fluid for weeks to months after a man is otherwise recovered. So its vitally important to use condoms during that time.)

6 foot rule definitely is good for this, and more people will follow it because it's by contact, and not airborne, which is a plus.

It doesn’t seem to spread very fast or very easily, but take care everyone.

If you have trypophobia, when those pox burst leaving a bunch of holes in your skin is going to be terrifying 😲

Now that MPox has jumped into the mainstream population, people also need to know that their PETS can catch it too. They can transmit it back to humans (& other animals). Read CDC on MPox & pets:

I'm curious about how a pregnant mother passing the virus to the fetus affects development.

"It definitely causes less severe disease than smallpox." Thanks, I think.
