For some deeper Medical details see this report:

In part quoting:
"Essentially all of the current cases in the west which we are seeing in the news are among men who have sex with men, and appear to be due to close physical contact."

#3 Did you know the CDC's shorthand for "men who have sex with men" is MSM?

#8 Monkeypox leaves scaring, almost Biblical like the mark of Cain, "It spreads from one person to another through prolonged close contact (by inhaling the infected droplets), or direct contact with infected bodily fluids or contaminated objects, such as bedding or clothes. It does not spread via casual contact. Pitted scars and/or areas of lighter or darker skin may remain after scabs have fallen off."

Do the oh-so-clever scientists at the CDC and WHO not do literature searches anymore? Any bets that any of the cases were exposed to exotic pets from Africa? Or exotic people ditto?

#14 ^ Exactly! [Hot Air]
The Gran Canarian pride festival attended by 80,000 from Britain and across Europe is being investigated after being linked to numerous monkeypox cases in Madrid, Italy and Tenerife.

Held between May 5 and May 15, Maspalomas Pride attracts visitors from across the continent.

It was attended by people who have tested positive for the monekypox virus afterwards, with public health services from the Canary Islands now investigating the any links between the cases and the LGBT+ celebrations.

‘Among the 30 or so diagnosed in Madrid, there are several who attended the event, although it is not yet possible to know if one of them is patient zero of this outbreak or if they all got infected there,’ a health source told El País.
