Monkeypox may be spreading across dozens of nations, but doesn’t qualify as a global health emergency yet, the World Health Organization said Saturday.
However, WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said monkeypox was evolving rapidly and advised governments around the world to increase their surveillance, contact tracing and testing, CNBC reported. He also urged world leaders to ensure that people at high risk have access to vaccines and antiviral treatments.
The article goes on to state the following:
The WHO has said mass vaccination is not recommended at this time to stop monkeypox. The US is offering vaccines to people who are at high risk of exposure to the virus and has sent doses to New York amid a spike in cases.
As of Friday, the New York Health Department said 87 people have tested positive, up from 78 on Thursday.
WHO data shows that at least 3,000 monkeypox cases have been identified since early May and span more than 50 countries.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the US reported 460 confirmed or “suspected” cases across 32 states and Washington DC.
It still remains a mystery how exactly monkeypox has cropped up since it typically is passed from an infected animal to a human host.
What is known, however, is that the outbreak is primarily affecting gay and bisexual men that have sex with multiple partners or had sex with a new partner.
