What is Monkeypox?

Monkeypox is a rare, communicable viral disease in humans spread by wild animals and is usually found in the rainforest countries of central and West Africa where it can be fatal for 1 in 10 people who contract it.

Limited human spread has been reported in the past, with estimated transmission rates of 3.3% to 30%. However, during a recent outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the transmission rate was estimated at 73% percent.

A relatively mild viral infection, the disease has a 6 – 16 day incubation period with patients experiencing symptoms such as fever, sweating, headaches and swelling with a rash with papules and pustules on the face and chest.

Monkeypox is a viral zoonosis, a virus transmitted to humans from animals and is related to smallpox, as they are both orthopoxvirus. However, it is not related to chickenpox, caused by the Varicella Zoster virus (VZV), despite their similar names.

How Is Monkeypox Contracted?

Transmission of the Monkeypox virus occurs when a person comes into contact with the virus from an animal to human on material contaminated with the virus. The virus, though not visible, is spread by contact with bodily fluids containing the virus rather than through the air like measles or Covid 19. It enters the body through broken skin, through the respiratory tract, or the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, or mouth.

According to health officials, there are increasing cases of Monkeypox, which is similar to smallpox, but less severe.

 What Are The Symptoms of Monkeypox?

Is Monkeypox Fatal? 

Monkeypox can be fatal, however, the strain of viruses responsible for the current outbreak causes a milder form of the disease.

How Do You Prevent Monkeypox?

To prevent Monkeypox, avoid contact with animals that could harbor the virus, including animals that are sick or that have been found dead in areas where Monkeypox occurs.

Also, be sure to avoid contact with any materials that has been in contact with a sick animal, such as saliva or blood on a towel, etc. Be sure to isolate and quarantine the infected patients from others to prevent risk of infection to others.

In addition, due to the theory that the Monkeypox virus is also caused by air borne transmission, airborne precautions should be applied whenever possible.
