Monkeypox in the UK: Health officials in the UK have identified 104 more cases of Monkey Pox in the country, and cases are now being reported outside Africa. The UK’s Health Protection Agency said on Monday that 470 cases of monkey pox had been reported across the country, most of them among gay or “bisexual” men.
Scientists have warned that anyone who comes in contact with a person infected with monkey pox could become infected. According to UK statistics, 99% of cases of infection are in men so far and most cases are in London.
Many cases are found in many countries outside of Africa.
Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) said 1,285 cases of monkey pox were reported from 28 countries where monkey pox was not considered endemic. No casualties were reported outside Africa. After Britain, Spain, Germany and Canada have the highest number of reported cases.
What is monkeypox??
The disease is linked to smallpox, which killed millions of people worldwide each year before it ended in 1980. However, monkey pox, which is spread by close contact, is much less severe, usually with a high fever and chicken pox-like rash that clears up in a few weeks. The smallpox vaccine has been found to be about 85% effective in preventing monkey pox. Monkey pox mortality rates are generally very low.
