Financial Association August 7th (Editor Niu Zhanlin)On August 6, local time, the American Washington Post stated that the prevention and control of the American acne epidemic had failed. In this way, this is not the case.
Like the new crowns, the United States has fallen into a unsuccessful model. It is often announced that it has entered an emergency after the epidemic has lost control, rather than quickly taking action before the large -scale spread.
Since the first case of monkey acne appeared in the United States in mid -May, the epidemic of the monkey acne has spread rapidly in the United States. According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of August 5, local time, the Monkey Acne epidemic has spread to 49 states in the United States and has recorded 7510 cases of acne in the United States.
On August 4, the US Department of Health and Public Services officially announced that the epidemic of the monkey acne constituted an emergency public health incident. The last time the United States announced that the emergency state of public health was in January 2020, when it was to cope with the new crown epidemic.
The WHO has announced last month that the epidemic of the monkey acne was listed as "internationally concerned about public health incidents", which is the highest -level alarm of the organization. The epidemic of the monkey acne is mainly spread between gays, but the transmission requires close contact. The damaged skin, mucous membranes, the body fluid of the infected person, and even the sheets contaminated by the virus may cause infection.
However, unlike the early situation of the new crown epidemic, there are currently effective vaccines for monkey acne. But this two -dose vaccine, known as Jynneos, is facing a shortage of vaccines, and the situation of insurmountable supply may last for several months.
In hospitals across the United States, people who vaccinated monkey acne vaccines lined up. Some people lined up at the entrance of the hospital in the early morning and waited for vaccination. However, due to the insufficient supply of acne vaccines in the hospital and limited vaccines issued daily, many people need to queue for several days to vaccinate.
According to scientists at the School of Public Health of Yale University, nearly 500,000 gay men in the United States are in a high -risk state and are likely to be infected. Ideally, it is necessary to quickly distribute the vaccine to one -third of the people, and increase the detection and tracking densely, which can effectively curb the epidemic. But this requires at least 329,000 doses of vaccine, which cannot be done.
CDC Director Roseel & Middot; Valenzki estimates that the total number of vulnerable people facing high risks may be higher, as many as 1.7 million people. The government's announcement has entered an emergency, highlighting that the crisis is far from being resolved.
Although monkey acne epidemic is mainly spread between gays, experts warn that this disease may spread to other people, especially in the case of vaccine shortage.
Jie & Middot, Director of Popularity Prevention and Response Center of Cornell University; Dr. Valma pointed out: "Of course we know that it will spread to family members and other non -male partners. Gay gay spreads so fast. "
Experts point out that the transmission path of HIV may indicate where the monkey acne virus will spread. Graig & Middot, associate professor of epidemiology at Yale University; Gonzelvis said: "I am most worried about it, it will flow to the place where AIDS has been there to enter the colorful race community in rural areas in the south. Vaccination and therapeutic facilities are limited, which is likely to cause large -scale transmission. "
