Weather of Arabia - The World Health Organization announced the registration of 3,098 confirmed cases of monkeypox in more than 41 countries around the world (as of June 21), since the first case was reported on May 7 outside countries where the disease usually spreads.
As for the spread of the disease in Arab countries:
For its part, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (European Health Agency), said that the risk of spreading the rare monkeypox in the population at large is "extremely low" but high in certain groups.
We should expect to see more in the coming days, but we have the tools to stop the virus, said Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO's responsible for emerging diseases.
It is noteworthy that the symptoms of monkeypox begin with a high fever and quickly develop into a rash, which is close to smallpox that was eradicated from the world forty years ago, but it is less dangerous than it, but what worries experts is the emergence of infections at the same time in many countries, not Especially in Europe, without this being linked to returning from African countries where the disease is endemic.
