BRUXELLES, Belgium (LifeSiteNews) — Belgium has become the first country to introduce a compulsory 21-day quarantine for anyone who tests positive for monkeypox, following the mysterious outbreak of the viral disease which has prompted the U.S. government to order millions of doses of monkeypox vaccine.

The Belgian health authorities decided Friday to introduce compulsory measures, and as of May 24 the small European Union country of some 11.5 million people has detected four cases, all linked to a festival in Antwerp.

So far, the compulsory quarantine measures will apply only to people who are tested positive for monkeypox. Close contacts will not be required to self-isolate.

Meanwhile, the number of confirmed cases continues to increase worldwide. As of Tuesday, confirmed global infections number over 100 in a number of countries including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Portugal and Netherlands.

Monkeypox is currently understood as a rare infection primarily spread by wild animals in West Africa. Its symptoms are said to be similar to that of chickenpox. Case fatality rate estimates for human obtained monkeypox in Africa range from 1% to 15%.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): “Monkeypox was first discovered in 1958 when two outbreaks of a pox-like disease occurred in colonies of monkeys kept for research, hence the name ‘monkeypox.’ The first human case of monkeypox was recorded in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of Congo during a period of intensified effort to eliminate smallpox. Since then, monkeypox has been reported in humans in other central and western African countries.”

Early reports from Europe seem to indicate that Monkeypox is spreading primarily within the homosexual and bisexual movements.

“Based on currently available information, cases have mainly but not exclusively been identified amongst men who have sex with men (MSM) seeking care in primary care and sexual health clinics,” the World Health Organization said in a statement Saturday.

Experts have also expressed concerns that some of the infection clusters appear to have no connection to one-another.

“To have it appear now — more than 100 cases in 12 different countries with no obvious connection — means we have to figure out exactly what’s happening,” Seth Berkley, CEO of global vaccine alliance Gavi, told CNBC Monday.

The mysterious outbreak comes just one year after an international biosecurity conference in Munich held a simulation of a “global pandemic involving an unusual strain of Monkeypox” beginning in mid-May 2022.

News of the outbreak also coincides with the push by global elites for the ratification of an international “pandemic treaty” which German Member of European Parliament (MEP) Christine Anderson described a “a plan to allow the WHO to seize executive governance powers of the member states in [the] case of a pandemic.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. government ordered millions of doses of a smallpox-monkeypox vaccine – which the Food and Drug Administration approved in September 2019 – this week.
