Monkeypox is a rare pustular/vesicular disorder, largely a skin rash and constitutional symptoms first described in 1958 in monkeys from the Congo basin in Africa, with human cases reported from the 1970s going forward in time. In the US, there was an outbreak in 2003 when pet prairie dogs were housed with giant pouch rats from Africa, and the orthopox illness spread from those pets to humans. Among several dozen US cases, there were no deaths.

Over the decades, death reported in monkeypox cases has largely been confined to regions where supportive care may not have been adequate or in men with HIV who were already sick with that illness.1

In 2018 the US FDA approved tecovirimat (Tpoxx) and oral and now an intravenous drug that effectively treats the illness. There is also a live attenuated vaccine by Jynneos, Inc, that has been FDA approved only on antibody data without any supportive clinical information, which means that it has never been shown to prevent a case of monkeypox. The Jynneos product has generated safety concerns with reported myocarditis or heart inflammation cases in subjects who have taken it, as disclosed in case reports.2

The world currently has an outbreak of monkeypox as reported in the news; many of these cases should have independent verification since there has been a recent planning exercise published by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (Washington DC) and a biosecurity group in Munich, Germany.

In this tabletop exercise, the group anticipated the release date for an intentional monkeypox crisis would be May 15, 2022, just 7 days before the World Health Initiative meeting on expansion of global control and concurrent with the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.3 The timing was so suspicious many have been held back on commentary until there is more confirmation of real cases.

In a hyperbolic over-reaction, the US government announced the purchase of 13 million doses of the clinically unproven Jynneos vaccine. Some vaccine enthusiasts have proposed perimeter or rim vaccination of monkeypox contacts. This appears unjustified since the virus spreads by intensive physical contact (kissing, sex, touching blisters/pustules) and is not very communicable.

In a case reported by the “Monkeypox Response Team” in the CDC MMWR on April 22, 2022, a man from Africa landed in the US in the summer of 2021, traveled to Atlanta and Dallas, and had many contacts over several weeks while sick, and did not spread it to a single contact.4 He was hospitalized in Dallas and treated with tecovirimat with complete recovery. So indeed, we may be going bananas over monkeypox right at a time of global meetings effectuating a state of “hypervigilance” in our vaccine-tranced world health leaders. 

On the show this week, we have Ashlyn Nicole Simpson and a trailer of “Start with Me”5 and then move into a riveting interview with psychiatrist, ethicist, and former professor of medicine at the University of California at Irvine, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty who discusses pandemic response, ethos, pathos, and logos.6

    Dr. McCullough is an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist managing the cardiovascular complications of both the viral infection and the injuries developing after the COVID-19 vaccine in Dallas, TX, USA. Since the outset of the pandemic, Dr. McCullough has been a leader in the medical response to the COVID-19 disaster and has published “Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection,” the first synthesis of sequenced multidrug treatment of ambulatory patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the American Journal of Medicine and subsequently updated in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine. He has dozens of peer-reviewed publications on the infection and has extensively commented on the medical response to the COVID-19 crisis in TheHill, America Out Loud, NewsMax, One America News, Victory Channel, NTD, and FOX NEWS Channel. Dr. McCullough has testified on pandemic response multiple times in the US Senate, Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services, Arizona Senate, Colorado General Assembly, New Hampshire Senate, Pennsylvania Senate, and South Carolina Senate. On December 7, 2022, Dr. McCullough co-moderated a Senate Panel and concluded that all COVID-19 vaccines should be removed from the market for excess mortality. Dr. McCullough has reviewed thousands of reports, participated in scientific congresses, group discussions, and press releases, and has been considered among the world's top experts on COVID-19.
