#MPX lands in Perth

#MPX arrives into Perth, Western Australia. I believe there may be asymptomatic carriers (no rash) and aerosol may be a means of transmission (close contact-ish, semi droplet), but nowhere as bad as SARS-CoV2. Having said that, I do not think it is as infectious, and most people will have physical signs of #MPX.

Australia now have 8 cases.

The case was infectious in WA for four days before they flew out to the UK where they were diagnosed three days later.
