Facepalm! W.H.O. Announces Plans to Rename 'Racist' Monkeypox

On Tuesday, the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) announced their plans to rename the monkeypox over concerns about the stigma and racism associated with that word. 

How utterly ignorant does someone have to be to relate monkeypox to a certain race?

While they have not announced a new yet, the W.H.O. current guidelines prevents viruses from being named after geological regions and animals.

Breitbart reports:

Monkeypox has thus far infected over 1,600 people in more than two dozen countries, first breaking out in the United States this past May in Massachusetts and possibly having originated in Canada. W.H.O. director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced on Tuesday that the organization will be  “working with partners and experts from around the world on changing the name of monkeypox virus, its clades, and the disease it causes.”

According to reports, the sudden name change comes after 30 scientists signed an an open letter last week, claiming that there is an “urgent need for a non-discriminatory and non-stigmatizing nomenclature for monkeypox virus.”

“In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing,” they wrote.

The Foreign Press Association, Africa, also previously asked Western media outlets to avoid using images of Africans when showing monkeypox.

“As any other disease, it can occur in any region in the world and afflict anyone, regardless of race or ethnicity,” the group said

“As such, we believe that no race or skin complexion should be the face of this disease,” the statement continued.

The group added that it was “disturbing” media outlets would instantly use images of black skin when showing monkeypox.

According to TIME, the organization will be consulting with experts in orthopoxviruses on more appropriate names.
