Monkeypox is a rare viral disease that is similar to smallpox. It is caused by the monkeypox virus and is primarily found in central and west Africa. The symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and exhaustion. A rash then develops, often beginning on the face and then spreading to other parts of the body.
Symptoms of monkeypox
are similar to those of smallpox, but they are generally less severe. Recovery from monkeypox can take several weeks and may require hospitalization.
The virus that causes monkeypox is believed to be transmitted to humans from animals, including rodents and primates. It can also be spread from person to person through close contact with an infected person’s respiratory
secretions, such as through coughing or sneezing.
There is no specific treatment for monkeypox, but severe cases may require hospitalization and supportive therapy.
