With the world still reeling from the effects of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, the rise of a different disease called ‘Monkeypox’ is putting many people on edge.

The World Health Organization has revealed on Friday that there are now over 200 confirmed cases of monkeypox across 20 countries, including those in Europe, the Middle East and North America.

As per reports, the WHO also said it feared community spread of the virus. Sylvie Briand, the WHO’s director for global infectious hazards preparedness, said the virus is ‘containable’ at this time if we put the right measures in place.

Meanwhile, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said no monkeypox cases have been reported in India as yet. However, the nation is prepped for the possibility, particularly since cases seem to be increasing globally. ICMR said children are more at risk of getting infected with the monkeypox virus.
