When people take the sheets OFF their beds do they flip them vigorously?
Just asking for the poxxenpox myth brigade
I thought you flipped the new sheets.
You kind of just remove the old sheets no? Are people really flipping the old?

Public health definitions: a primer
"close contact" can be direct physical contact.
But also not physicsl contact at all.

Jump on Twitter.
See Lancet about mpx = sexytime virus.

People get quite emotionally bothered by idea of ZeroCOVID
So I am hereby starting the VeryFewCOVID movement. It aims to reduce COVID to Very Few
If that's objectionable, add a few more viruses to Very Few. When it reaches a number you consider reasonable, that's VeryFewCOVID
This is contradistinction to Focussed Protection(TM) which lets SARS-CoV-2 free spread as we Focus Protection on the economy (which they misspelled as "elderly" in their missive).

Aside from COVID-19 or monkeypox or airborne transmission, at least we can find a silver lining in one of the nice things humans have come up with:
Searching for bookmarks from the URL bar in Chrome, and for options in Word in that little search box.
I ain't scrolling around forever to find some bookmark or option.
Word can still be terrible but at least it has that.
