Since May 2022, monkeypox outbreaks have appeared in several countries where the infection had not previously been seen.

This is why the World Health Organization (WHO) declared monkeypox a global health emergency.

According to the WHO, until July 23 more than 16,0000 cases have been reported in 75 countries and five people have died from the infection.

Monkeypox is caused by a virus in the same family as smallpox, although it is much less serious and experts say your chances of infection are low.
