Should the same declaration of a “disaster state” be applied to a number of other “cases” to allow “more aggressively respond (s) from their Governors?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Pritzker declares monkeypox a public health hazard emergency in State, reported the following statement

“Illinois has the third most monkeypox cases of any state, behind only New York and California. Pritzker’s declaration, which marks the state as a monkeypox “disaster area,” will allow public health officials to more aggressively respond to the outbreak, the governor’s office said.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse and a definition of pox to this conundrum.

King Solomon

To show partiality is not good– yet a person will do wrong for a piece of bread. (Proverb 28:21)


In courts of judicature, to give a cause or pass sentence in favor of a person, because he is rich, or is a relation, a friend, an acquaintance, or has done a kindness; and against another, because of the reverse

Definition of pox – Merriam Webster

1a: a virus disease (such as chicken pox) characterized by pustules or eruptions

barchaic: SMALLPOX


2: a disastrous evil: PLAGUE, Curse pox on him

What’s My Point?

There are a number of other issues which can be considered as health hazards which the Governor should have declare and provide another type of vaccine as health hazards for Illinois citizens and respond more aggressively.

For Example

Chicago Shootings, drug epidemic, crime, etc. to name a few.

In My Opinion

We need a new wise governor in Illinois

You Decide

Are more people being affected and dying from  another form of pox (curse) or health hazard than monkeypox in  that requires more aggressive response from the Illinois Governor?

Should voters consider that some politicians sometimes will do wrong, show partiality, or only act aggressively for another meaning of “a piece of bread,” (VOTES).

Who will you vote for in the upcoming election who is promising a more aggressive vaccine governing or an opposite course  to somehow change Illinois present path and record of non-aggressive governing of the present ‘pox’ affecting it citizens with Chicago Shootings, drug epidemic, crime, etc. to name a few?
