On Friday, a man in his 30s with minor symptoms returned to Melbourne, Australia, with monkeypox. Infected regions include Africa, Europe, and North America.

The public is concerned that the disease may spread like COVID-19. People can obtain it from animal bites and scrapes, according to experts, and rats are to blame for the current outbreak.

The majority of cases in the United States were linked to close human contact. Doctors believe this is due to the fact that it can be transmitted through close contact and viral sores.

The virus isn’t as contagious as COVID-19, and cases are rare. The first case of monkeypox was discovered in 1958.

Headaches, muscle aches, drowsiness, fever, and chills are common symptoms of infection. The West African strain has a 1% mortality rate, while the Congo strain has a 10% mortality rate.

The Philippine Department of Health (DOH) stated that the sickness has not spread beyond the country’s borders and asked citizens to observe health and safety precautions.

Wearing a well-fitting mask, ensuring excellent airflow, keeping hands clean, and maintaining physical distance are all minimum public health criteria for preventing monkeypox transmission. COVID-19 is prevented by these.”
