Monkeypox: An unfamiliar virus spreading fast — sound familiar? | Harvard Health

Must Read

Monkeypox is a disease caused by a virus that is related to smallpox. It is most frequent in central and western Africa, producing a similar (though typically less severe) disease. At least a dozen nations, including the United States, Canada, Israel, and Europe, have reported the infection. Because monkeypox can be transferred via any physical touch, not simply sexual contact, it has not been classified as a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Monkeypox has no particular FDA-approved therapies; however, antiviral medications may be helpful. Monkeypox is no laughing matter, and scientists are working hard to find answers to these issues. Monkeypox is unlikely to trigger a pandemic, unlike SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Monkeypox is typically infectious after symptoms appear, which helps to keep it from spreading. It isn’t as readily distributed, and when a person is contagious, they are generally unwell.
