THE OUTBREAK OF MONKEY POX IS UNLIKELY TO BECOME GLOBAL

The World Health Organization (WHO) reassures the public that the ongoing outbreak of monkeypox is not likely to escalate to a pandemic. However, the organization’s expert, Rosamund Lewis, admits that much is still unknown about the disease, including its exact transmission routes and the potential impact of smallpox vaccination discontinuation. Lewis emphasized that the WHO is currently focused on providing additional information to at-risk individuals, particularly sexual minorities who are most affected by the disease. So far, over 250 cases of monkeypox have been reported in 23 countries, with mild symptoms such as high fever, skin rashes, and fatigue being the most common.
