What is Monkey pox?

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection similar to human smallpox. It was first detected in 1958 in monkeys kept for research.

The first case of infection with monkeypox was recorded in 1970. The disease occurs mainly in tropical rainforest regions of Central and West Africa and occasionally spreads to other regions.

Cause of Monkey Pox:

Dr. Monalisa Sahu, Consultant on Infectious Diseases at Yashoda Hospital, Hyderabad said, “Monkeypox is a rare zoonotic disease caused by infection with Monkeypox virus. The monkeypox virus belongs to the family Poxviridae, which also includes the viruses that cause chickenpox and chickenpox.’

Experts claim that being close to an infected person can increase the risk of infection. The virus (Monkey Pox) can enter the body of a healthy person through the trachea, wound site, nose, mouth or eyes. The infection can also be spread through clothing worn by the infected.

A person can also get the disease from eating less cooked meat or infected animal products. The virus can usually spread from other species, such as rats, squirrels, and tree squirrels. There is still no Hu-approved treatment for Monkey Pox. However, at a rate that is rising rapidly, Hu is eager to find a cure for this rare virus.

Symptoms of Monkey Pox:

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), monkeypox usually presents with fever, rash and lumps and can lead to a variety of medical complications. Symptoms usually appear for two to four weeks, which go away on their own.

Cases can also be serious. In recent times, the proportion of mortality has been around 3-6 per cent, but it can be as high as 10 per cent. No case of death has been reported during the current spread of the infection.

How is the infection spread?

Monkeypox is spread to humans through close contact with an infected person or animal, or through material contaminated with the virus. It is believed to be transmitted by animals such as rats, mice, and squirrels.

The disease is spread through wounds, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated material such as bedding. This virus is less contagious than smallpox and causes less severe illness.

Health officials say some of these infections can be transmitted through sexual contact. The WHO said it was also investigating a number of cases involving gay or bisexual people.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, monkeypox has spread to 58 countries around the world. This Monkey Pox has infected 3,416 people. About 60 percent of the monkeypox victims are Europeans. There have been 1,400 monkeypox cases in Africa this year, and 72 deaths.
