The outbreak had increased since May
Significantly, in the month of May this year, monkeypox spread rapidly in the world. Monkeypox virus is mainly spread by coming in contact with a person infected with this disease. The patients of this disease are facing problems like fever, muscle pain and large boils on the skin. Especially this disease is spreading rapidly among gay men. A major reason for this is believed to be the sexual relationship between them.
In view of the increasing spread of monkeypox in the world, the WHO declared it a Public Health Emergency in July. The monkeypox virus was first found in monkeys. Because of this, people in Brazil attacked the monkeys out of fear. Taking this seriously, WHO is seeking suggestions from people to change the name of Monkeypox. For this he has also created a website. In this, anyone can give their opinion about the new name of Monkeypox.
