Seems to require rather intimate contact to be transmissable, and is
currently mostly limited to the gay community. However, this is also how
AIDS got started in the general human population.
Smallpox vaccines give around 85% protection, but we no longer vaccinate
against it because it is extinct in the wild. This may explain how this
wave of monkeypox has become possible.
