CDC reports on its Mpox response

As of May 11, 2023, the World Health Organization (WHO) no longer classifies monkeypox as a public health emergency. That being said, officials recently detected a cluster of infection among vaccinated individuals in Chicago. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are closely monitoring the cases.

Mental Illness Not a Factor in Most Mass School Shootings

In America, 12 children die every day from gun violence. A new study from the Columbia Mass Murder Database shows that when it comes to mass shooters, mental health issues are a straw man argument. According to the study, ‘more than three-quarters (77%) of all perpetrators of mass murders in academic settings had no recorded history of psychotic symptoms.’

HIV Infections Down 12%

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say the recent 12% decline in HIV cases will hopefully contribute to the goal of a 90% decline by 2030. Experts attribute the decline to increased prevention awareness and increased usage of pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP. “Our nation’s HIV prevention efforts continue to move in the right direction,” Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, director of the CDC, said in a released statement.
