It’s been a while since monkeypox broke out, so what’s the current status of it?

Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that a total of 780 confirmed cases in 27 non-monkeypox-endemic countries around the world have been identified , or there is a risk of further transmission.

However, the WHO also said it maintained its previous assessment that monkeypox poses a “moderate risk” to global public health.

 

According to the latest British media reports, as of June 2, a total of 780 confirmed cases of monkeypox have been reported worldwide, of which the UK has the most with 207 cases , Spain and Portugal are the second and third, with 156 and 156 confirmed cases.

138 cases, and individual cases have also been reported in countries such as the United States, Argentina, Australia, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.

 

The WHO said the number of confirmed monkeypox cases globally in the past three weeks was “or underestimated” due to limited epidemiological and laboratory information, and some countries reported new cases that were not known contacts of previously confirmed cases. It means that there is a possibility of community spread of the virus. “It is very likely that monkeypox cases have already occurred in other countries, and the virus may spread further.”

 

It is a temporary relief that at present, no country has reported monkeypox deaths.

 

The WHO said that although some of the confirmed cases of monkeypox identified so far are men who have sex with men, there is no evidence that monkeypox can be sexually transmitted, and it is certain that the virus can be transmitted through close contact .

 

It is understood that the initial symptoms of monkeypox infection in humans include fever, headache, muscle aches, back pain, and swollen lymph nodes, which can then develop into a widespread rash on the face and body. Most patients recover within weeks, but others develop severe symptoms and even die.
