Monkeypox is a zoonosis (a virus transmitted from animals to people) with symptoms similar to smallpox, but less severe. Monkeypox has become the most important orthopoxvirus for public health since smallpox was eradicated in 1980.Monkeypox occurs in central and west Africa, often near tropical rainforests, and is spreading to cities. Rodents and primates are hosts.
