8:30 pm
emergency declared for the country. the city of san francisco in the state of california offer monkeypox virus is spreading fast. and right now the lgbtq community has the highest number of cases a mere is the ceo of the san francisco aids foundation. he >> joins us to talk about the response so far. thank you for your time. let's start with the fact that you have been expressing frustration, sense this outbreak occurred about the lack of vaccine, the lack
8:31 pm
of response outreach on and on and on. so how are you feeling now about the federal declaration? >> now, this is very much a moment of mixed emotion. i think a federal declaration is something we've been asking for for a number weeks. this will help bring more awareness to the issue and hopefully provide more resources for more swift and effective response. with that in mind, it is infuriating that it is taking this long. the data has been the writing on the wall for weeks, if not months, stating back to late may early june, we could have foreseen this very preventable wide spread monkeypox across the country. and we have done very little from the federal response to prepare for the situation that we're now. and here in san francisco jam. any thoughts on why that is why it took so long >> you know, there are many
8:32 pm
thought about. >> the delay in naming a federal emergency. one reason that we have heard is that because monkeypox is not fatal. there was cops that we should not declare this level of emergency. but while it is not, they don't. that is true. what can't speak overstated is that there is extreme distress, anxiety, fear and very real pain that members of the lgbtq+ community have been going through and there will be very long lasting consequences for the failure that has been the inability to respond quickly to this outbreak. yeah, that's what i want to ask you. what you're hearing from patients about those who have exposure to. >> monkeypox. so we're hearing that it's a skin to skin contact is the primary transmission method. but also that respiratory drops or even on betting in clothes and things like that might lead to transmission. so it seems that medical officials are still trying to figure this out. but
8:33 pm
what are you hearing from the patients who actually experienced this about the symptoms of pain and whatnot? >> and we started a monkeypox hotline many weeks ago. harking back to the very first program of san francisco aids foundation. we came together as a community to answer questions and many of those questions concerns and fears that are coming in are folks that have symptoms and don't know where to go on to get access to treatments or feel that they may have been exposed and don't know how to access testing. this is for folks who have been confirmed with monkeypox, both a painful experience, one that can leave lasting scars and one that has caused emotional distress that will remain with the community for quite some time. >> they talk about the similarities and differences was aids, hiv and monkeypox because you are with the aids foundation aids and hiv are still with us. but certainly doesn't have the devastating effects. and it did back in
8:34 pm
the 80's when it was claiming so many lives, particularly here in the bay area monkeypox is not fatal. but again, it's seems to be prevalent among men, particularly even though can affect anybody. but it's not fatal. so are talk about that as being part of the aids foundation and being involved with monkeypox. is it is it primarily right now gase are suffering the most because of this. >> you know, in 1982 san francisco aids foundation 40 years ago this year formed in a moment of public health crisis. and it was a community of folks mainly men and their allies that have to come together in a moment resilience to fight for the access that they needed and deserved. when the federal government failed them. in response, san franciscans were abandoned to respond to the hiv epidemic and we had to fight every day to ensure that people could live and try to make it to this day where 40 years later we are able to be
8:35 pm
in a place where we may see 0 new infections. it it deserves its own story line. it is a stain on american history in a way that the government did not respond. but what is similar is this moment where there has been a lack of swift action, a lack of urgency in responding to this crisis and many of us believe that it is because of what has impacted community lgbtq+, folks, i have long been marginalized and in this moment and mookie pops has been both stigmatizing and politicized on our population. that was one of the other things i wanted to ask is about concern over shaming so many in the lgbt q community. >> have expressed concern that since the numbers right now are highest in your community in that community. that shaming is an issue. are your the people coming to you experiencing that? >> yeah, i think this is that
8:36 pm
at the moment where folks are very much stigmatized for infection that they might now have. we know that while there's no biological reason and that game and bisexual men and trans folks might be at higher risk. but that is who this infection is currently impacting the and that's predominantly because many of them have the same social and networks. what we need to do with public health officials is providing clear and direct information about who is at risk and ensure that everyone knows that this is a public health concern because it spreads from skin to and not based on what you look like or orientation that you may have. >> talk outreach. a lot of communities, particularly communities of color, low income communities have of people haven't been able to stand in the long lines and good get to the low. the few locations where vaccinations are available when they have been there is a concern that,
8:37 pm
of course, this is not going to stay just within the community. talk about the access issues that concern the broader community. >> yeah, this has been one of our highest priorities and temperance iscariot foundation. we have a lot of concerns with the limited amount of vaccine we have in the community that vaccine equity won't be left out in this moment. for example, while latinx community makes up 15% of the population in san francis o, more than 30% of the confirmed cases of monkeypox are among black. next identify folks who have been eligible to receive testing and vaccination. we have a lot of concern folks are unable to go take the day off and go stand in long, long lines for long phone trees. they're not clinics on evenings or weekends and materials have not all been translated into the languages that they need to be most accessible for those who need them the most. we have a lot
8:38 pm
of work to do and we have a lot of lessons that should phave been learned from the last few years. the covid we now how to scale up vaccination testing and treatment in a fast and efficient way from the last few years. and there's no reason that we can't do the same during this time. >> tyler to mirror the ceo of the san francisco aids foundation. thank you so much for your time. we appreciate your perspective. and of course, we all hope that with this new declaration of emergency across the country that feels vaccine stirt rolling out a lot faster and the people who get the shots they need. thanks again. thank you. thank you. >> coming up tonight in sports, giants manager gabe kaplan came unglued at oracle park during the game with the dodgers today. what happened? >> and a south bay man is in custody tonight. accused of opening fire on half a dozen unsuspecting people with a pellet gun, putting at least
