Dozens of monkeypox cases are confirmed or suspected all over the world after long outbreak of Corona virus. There's a monkeypox outbreak in the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, and other European countries.
Monkeypox is a viral disease that occurs mostly in central and western Africa. It is called monkeypox because it was first identified in laboratory monkeys. Monkeypox can be spread when someone is in close contact with an infected person.
Typically, people catch monkeypox from animals in West Africa or central Africa and import the virus to other countries. Monkeypox killed at least 58 people and infected over 1,200 others in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since the beginning of this year.
Monkeypox symptoms are similar to but milder than smallpox symptoms. Early signs of monkeypox include flu-like symptoms such as, Fever, Chills, Headache, Muscle, aches, Fatigue, Swollen lymph nodes. Studies in central Africa, where people have less access to quality health care, show the disease kills as many as it can.
After one to three days, a rash with raised bumps develops. The rash often starts on your face and then spreads to other parts of your body, including the palms of your hands and soles of your feet.
Monkeypox in small animals imported from Ghana as exotic pets was at the origin of an outbreak of human monkeypox in the USA in 2003 according to research from Texas lab. Now the virus outbreaks again and it's spreading so fast all over the world. Many countries have confirmed many cases and this could lead to a second lock down worldwide.
There’s currently no proven, safe treatment available for monkeypox. Antiviral drugs may help, but they haven’t been studied as a treatment for monkeypox. Instead, your healthcare provider will monitor your condition and try to relieve your symptoms.
