Monkeypox has a large genome, so it’s hard to figure out what was intentionally altered by humans.

monkeypox

The variant of monkeypox that is now spreading around the world was created in a laboratory. This was announced to URA.RU by the head of the laboratory of especially dangerous infections of the Center for Fundamental Translational Medicine, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor Alexander Chepurnov.

“I remain of the opinion that this variant of monkeypox has been worked on. It didn’t spread on its own. I had a hope that this was due to a decrease in the immune status of mankind. But now I have no doubt that they worked with him, ”said Alexander Chepurnov.

As the professor noted, it is difficult to find what exactly scientists have changed in this virus, since it has a large genome. “And it’s quite difficult to fix it just like that, since there is a huge genome, more than 200 genes, so it’s difficult to associate and isolate what exactly was produced from the replacements. I don’t think it’s a genetic construct. Most likely, this is a selection work. I believe that breeding remains the main way to obtain combat strains, ”he clarified.

According to the virologist, now we need to think about creating a vaccine against monkeypox. “It is already clear that the infection is spreading uncontrollably. We can not cope, the troubles are waiting for us quite big. I don’t know if our leadership has resumed production of the vaccine. I don’t think we have a serious stock of it because it’s about to expire. This should be raised, and at least voluntary vaccination should be offered, since physical deformity is behind this. I think that in this case, young people may be interested, ”concluded Chepurnov.
