I simply cannot deal with another once-in-a-lifetime global pandemic, so it better not turn out to be another one of those

This virus is not a new disease and its transmission rate is low so in my opinion as medical personnel I doubt it will be a pandemic like covid-19 and it also has a low mortality rate.

As an epidemiologist, I know very well that there is always an epidemic going on in the world, some are more contagious than others, and more lethal as well. The reason this monkeypox has not mutated is that it is not as contagious and that keeps it non-lethal, to me, it is just another one.

This type of epidemic does not present a greater danger to society compared to others, such as COVID, but it is still of utmost importance to avoid contagion because this type of virus leaves traces in the body, and these traces are leftover time.

After what we experienced with COVID-19, it is of utmost importance to beware of anything that could be similar to a pandemic, we must not make the same mistake again.

What worries me most is the attitude towards it. It was clear when it started getting more coverage that people were NOT willing to acknowledge the threat because we already have pandemic-fatigue from covid.
