four caregivers, all shared bed; Caregiver A main guardian, prolonged exposure with skin-to-skin contact, Caregiver B reported activities that placed him at high risk for monkeypox exposure
This insanity is unfolding because CDC and NIH and WHO played woke politics and political correctness games and did not tell the GAY and Bisexual males to stop the anal sex and to stop all intimate skin-to-skin contact; in fact CDC promoted ‘at a distance masturbation’ and ‘sex with clothes on’ bullshit that placed the low-risk heterosexual population at risk. What you are witnessing here is expansion to the low-risk population of something (assuming this is real) that could have been tamped down with proper routine public healthy surveillance, acute contact tracing, isolation of symptomatic persons ONLY. Again, a failure by the CDC and for them to now write this BS MMWR report as if they are ‘informing’ us when they caused this. CDC should be shut down. What a joke public health agency.
Within the home, the infant was cared for by four caregivers. Caregiver A acted as the main guardian throughout the infant’s hospital stay and had prolonged exposure with skin-to-skin contact.
Caregiver B reported activities that placed him at high risk for monkeypox exposure during the 2 months preceding the infant’s illness (2).
Caregiver B reported hematuria and fever, followed by a rash within the 3 weeks before the infant’s symptom onset.
One day before the infant became symptomatic, caregiver B moved to another state and sought medical care for his symptoms. He is now lost to follow-up. He received a positive Orthopoxvirus DNA test result 2 days after the infant’s positive test result, after which, he was lost to follow-up.
The infant had daily close contact with caregiver B in the home for 6 weeks before rash onset. Possible routes of transmission included shared bed linens and skin-to-skin contact through holding and daily care activities.
Investigation identified three other household family members with household exposures to both the infant and caregiver B. Caregiver B, caregiver C, and the infant shared a bed for the 6 weeks preceding the infant’s symptom onset.
All household members shared a bed with and (caregivers A, B, C, and D) held the infant with close skin-to-skin contact.
Caregivers A, C, and D received postexposure prophylaxis with JYNNEOS vaccine and remained asymptomatic at 22 days after the infant’s symptom onset (2,3). Caregiver A had also received smallpox vaccination during childhood.
