Monkeypox: Monkeypox is spreading in many countries including America, why is Smallpox vaccine being applied?

There have been 92 cases of monkeypox worldwide. WHO has issued an alert regarding this disease. It has also been said that there may be more cases of monkeypox in the US.

Because the world has not yet fully recovered from the corona infection, a new disease has begun to spread. The disease named monkeypox is spreading rapidly in many countries including America. WHO has issued an alert regarding this. According to WHO officials, 92 cases of monkeypox have been discovered in various countries around the world. Along with this, 28 new suspected patients have also been found. At the same time, a United Nations agency said that more patients of monkeypox may come forward. Because the infection of this disease is spreading rapidly in those countries, where this disease was not usually there.

On the other hand, according to the WHO, monkeypox may cause trouble in some countries, but it is more like a common viral infection in West and Central Africa. Which is a simple disease. In such a case, these countries can assist other countries around the world in preventing and controlling the spread of monkeypox.

How dangerous is this disease?

According to the agency, an official of the US Department of Health said that the threat from this disease is not very high right now. Monkeypox is a simple virus. Due to this people may have problems with fever, and body pain. Along with this, the symptom of monkeypox is also that the pimple comes out on the hands and feet of the patient. He said that it is in a way a form of smallpox. Patients suffering from monkeypox usually make a full recovery in two to four weeks. The death toll from this disease is 1%.

how fast does the monkeypox virus spread

According to American health experts, the disease’s spread is not widespread. Think of it in such a way that this virus catches people at a much slower rate than the speed with which the Kovid-19 infection spreads. Experts say that recently it has been seen in all the cases related to this disease that monkeypox is spreading due to coming in contact with people who have got rashes in their bodies.

Dr. Martin Hirsch of Massachusetts Hospital says that Kovid infection infects people through breathing, but there is no such danger with monkeypox. It is not a very fatal disease. But it is also important that when symptoms of this disease appear, then be careful. Get treatment immediately. David Heyman of the WHO said that having physical relations with a person suffering from monkeypox greatly increases the risk of its spread.

Why are health experts worried?

According to the WHO, our concern is that all the monkeypox cases that have been reported so far have been found in countries where this disease was never there. In this case, it is determined whether the virus has mutated. So far, the highest number of cases of this disease have been found in Britain, America, Spain, Portugal, Canada, and Australia. Previously, there was no such disease in these countries. Not only this, more cases can come up in America. WHO officials expressed concern that festivals, parties, and holidays in Europe and other countries would be crowded, which could spread the infection.

How can people prevent infection?

In Britain, vaccination of health workers has been started to prevent this disease. Let us tell you that at present they are being given the same vaccines, which are used to prevent smallpox. It is being said that the same medicine is also effective for the prevention of monkeypox. The UK government claims to have an adequate supply of smallpox vaccine in its Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). The entire population of America can be vaccinated. Simultaneously, a spokesman for the US Department of Health and Human Services stated that antiviral drugs for smallpox can be used to treat monkeypox in some cases.
