LONDON (AP) — The World Health Organization convenes its emergency committee Thursday to consider if the spiraling outbreak of monkeypox warrants being declared a global emergency. But some experts say the WHO’s decision to act only after the disease spilled into the West could entrench the grotesque inequities that arose between rich and poor countries during the coronavirus pandemic.

Declaring monkeypox to be a global emergency would mean the U.N. health agency considers the outbreak to be an “extraordinary event” and that the disease is at risk of spreading across even more borders, possibly requiring a global response. It would also give monkeypox the same distinction as the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing effort to eradicate polio.

The article goes on to state the following:

The WHO said it did not expect to announce any decisions made by its emergency committee before Friday.


WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said recently that monkeypox is “unusual and concerning.” Currently monkeypox has been identified in more than 40 countries.

Oyewale Tomori, a Nigerian virologist who sits on several WHO advisory groups said, “If WHO was really worried about monkeypox spread, they could have convened their emergency committee years ago when it reemerged in Nigeria in 2017 and no one knew why we suddenly had hundreds of cases. It is a bit curious that WHO only called their experts when the disease showed up in white countries.”

David Fidler, a senior fellow in global health at the Council on Foreign Relations, said, “There may be legitimate reasons why WHO only raised the alarm when monkeypox spread to rich countries, but to poor countries, that looks like a double standard. Unless African governments specifically ask for vaccines, it might be a bit patronizing to send them because it’s in the West’s interest to stop monkeypox from being exported.”

According to the CDC, there has been more than 3,300 cases of confirmed monkeypox.

WHO Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office tweeted Thursday, “‘More than 2100 confirmed cases of #monkeypox have been reported to @WHO from 43 countries since January 2022, including three countries in our Region reporting 15 confirmed cases. The risk of monkeypox is becoming real and concerning.’ – Dr Ahmed Al-Mandhari, Regional Director.”

Oxford professor Trisha Greenhalgh tweeted, “Of note: the day before yesterday WHO listed monkey pox as an example of an “airborne” disease. Yesterday it quietly changed key documents to remove this example. Keep watching this one.”

“This WHO document, captured two days ago by @mdc_martinus, now omits monkey pox from the list of airborne diseases. Anyone got a tweet from WHO to the effect ‘fake news – monkey pox is not airborne’ on their high-consequence infectious diseases bingo card yet?”

Manhattan Borough president Mark Levine tweeted, “BREAKING: As monkeypox cases continue to rise in NYC, Health Dept is opening up access to the vaccine. Now available to all gay & bisexual men who have had multiple partners in past 14 days. Offered at Chelsea Clinic at 303 9th Ave.”

WHO tweeted, “The first Emergency Committee meeting regarding the multi-country #monkeypox outbreak is currently ongoing.”
