The World Health Organization says there are nearly 200 cases of monkeypox in more than 20 countries


There has been a rapid increase in the incidence of monkeypox around the world. Monkeypox, which was limited to 11 countries until last week, has now spread to 20 countries. The World Health Organization said Friday that about 200 cases of monkeypox have been reported from more than 20 countries in the world. However, the World Health Organization also said that this epidemic can be controlled and suggested a fair distribution of medicines and vaccines for this disease that are available around the world.

The United Nations World Health Organization said Friday that there are still no answers to many questions about how the current pandemic started, but that there is no evidence that the virus is caused by any kind of genetic variation.

Dr. Sylvie Briand, Director of Epidemiology at the World Health Organization, said that the first sequence (genome) of the virus indicates that this form does not differ from the pattern obtained from countries affected by the epidemic and that it (the spread of the epidemic) may be infected with the epidemic. It entered people’s lifestyle and is the result of change.

Rave parties are also responsible for spreading the infection

Earlier this week, the World Health Organization’s chief adviser said the outbreak in Europe, the United States, Israel, Australia and other countries may have been linked to sex during recent rave parties in Spain and Belgium. If so, it is very different from the way the virus is spreading in Central and West Africa, where the disease spread to humans from wild rats and monkeys.

So far this infection has been restricted to intersex.

The Spanish authorities said, on Friday, that the number of people infected with monkeypox in their country has risen to 98, including a woman. Doctors in Britain, Spain, Portugal, Canada, the United States and other countries believe that until now infection was restricted to bisexual men or men who have sex with men. However, scientists have now warned that if the infection is not controlled, it can spread to other people as well.
