In the book Disease Outbreak News released by WHO on Saturday, the World Health Organization (WHO) noted that more cases of the virus were reported in gay men.

 

 

Despite ongoing research on the spread of the virus, experts are still confused about how the disease spreads in affected countries as there are no travel links to infected areas.

The WHO news release reads, “The reported cases so far do not have links to travel to the epidemic. Based on the available information, cases in particular have not been identified only between men who have sex with men (MSM) seeking care in health care facilities and sex clinics.

 

“To date, all cases of PCR-certified samples have been identified as West African virus. Genome sequencing from a swab sample in a certified case in Portugal has shown similarities to the monopoly virus that causes current outbreaks, exported cases from Nigeria to the United Kingdom, Israel and Singapore in 2018 and 2019.

“The identification of confirmed and suspected monmypox cases without direct links to the epidemic represents a very unusual event. Surveillance so far in unusual areas is limited but is now growing.

“The WHO expects more incidents to be reported in non-playing areas. Available data suggest that person-to-person transmission occurs between physically close people and cases with symptoms. ”

The WHO also explains that the Monkeypox virus is transmitted from one person to another through close contact with ulcers, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminants such as sleep.

The incubation period for monmoypox usually lasts from 6 to 13 days but can range from 5 to 21 days.

Eating insufficient meat and other animal products of infected animals is a potential risk factor.

Monkeypox is often self-limiting but can be difficult for some people, such as children, pregnant women, or people with a weakened immune system due to other health conditions.
