In case you don’t know, the Monkeypox outbreak 2022 refers to reports of the infectious disease monkeypox, typically found in Central and West Africa, spreading across areas of Europe, the U.S., and Canada in 2022. A case of monkeypox was confirmed in England in May 2022 and spread to Portugal, Spain, and Canada over the course of the month.

The spread of the disease inspired conversation and fear that monkeypox would become a pandemic, especially due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Monkeypox has a fatality rate of about 3.6%, while Covid-19 has a fatality rate of 3.4%.

On another hand, the Nuclear Threat Initiative, an organization that published a shocking wargame that set the date for a global monkeypox outbreak in May 2022.

“An influential global security organization known as the Nuclear Threat Initiative published a wargame document in March 2021 that specifically predicted a monkeypox outbreak in May 2022.

“A year ago, at a munich conference [sic], the NTI predicted a monkeypox terror attack in May 2022 in a germ game, except it appears they were the terrorists,” TheBlaze Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz reported.

The wargame document provides a valuable glimpse into how national governments and intergovernmental organizations intend to prepare for the next pandemic.

“In March 2021, NTI partnered with the Munich Security Conference to conduct a tabletop exercise on reducing high-consequence biological threats,” the conference paper read. “The exercise examined gaps in national and international biosecurity and pandemic preparedness architectures—exploring opportunities to improve prevention and response capabilities for high-consequence biological events.”

“Developed in consultation with technical and policy experts, the exercise scenario portrayed a deadly, global pandemic involving an unusual strain of monkeypox virus that first emerges in the fictional country of Brinia and eventually spreads globally,” the document states.
