Monekypox is a new disease that has been spreading rapidly and is causing concern in the medical community. The virus has already infected over 1,200 people around the world, but it’s only been found in western countries. But now there are reports that Monekypox has crossed into Eastern Asia and Russia.

Monkeypox is a rising dangerous variant of Ebola that causes fever, sore throat, headaches and muscle aches similar to Ebola. It can cause severe vomiting and diarrhoea as well as bleeding from mucous membranes like the mouth or rectum. The disease is caused by a new type of coronavirus called Monekypox-2 (MOPV-2), which was discovered in Korea last year but has now spread fast across Asia and Europe. It is caused by a virus spread through the air. It can be spread from person to person, but it is most commonly spread through contact with infected droplets (aerosols) or secretions from an infected person.

Before Monekypox was discovered, there were only three known strains of pox viruses: variola (smallpox), vaccinia (cowpox), and Monkeypox. Now there are four separate strains: variola minor, vaccinia subunit C, Monkeypox and Monekypox. It is being said that it’s a part of a corona variant only!

Vaccine for Monkeypox

Monkeypox vaccines are available in San Francisco and Sacramento. The Centres for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that all people who have close personal contact with monkeys, including pet owners, be vaccinated.

Request for vaccines for Monkeypox, a severe viral haemorrhagic fever (VHF), has increased significantly in Africa. The World Health Organization (WHO) is recommending that all countries in the region stockpile 1 million doses of vaccine and stop using existing supplies.

The U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) don’t have enough human vaccine to prevent Monkeypox, but it is available from licensed manufacturers and CDC-licensed distributors. In addition to the human vaccine, over 790,000 vials of Monkeypox virus are being prepared for shipment to affected countries in Africa by the Department of Defence’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working with state and local partners to increase the availability of vaccine for Monkeypox.

How to prevent it?

The way to prevent Monkeypox is by vaccinating people. That's because Monkeypox is a virus that can infect humans and animals, causing a disease known as Monkeypox. It's not caused by a monkey but by the same virus that causes smallpox — a highly contagious viral disease that spreads through contact with infected people or animals.

The best way to prevent this disease is to get vaccinated against it. Vaccination protects you from Monkeypox if you're exposed to the virus. The vaccine is given in two doses of vaccine given six weeks apart. If you are traveling internationally or in areas where vaccination isn't offered, talk with your doctor about how to protect yourself from this infection.

  • Avoid contact with wild monkeys and their habitats. Maintain some good distances specially with monkey, because they are the most dangerous animals at this point and can cause severe problems to you!
  • Wears protective gear when working with animal carcasses or sick animals, including masks and gloves. Wearing some useful and safe protective gears are the best thing you can do to prevent yourself from the virus.
  • Avoid contact with infected wild animals by keeping your distance at least 3 feet and using appropriate protective equipment. Try to avoid to meet wild animals at this point, because they carry a huge virus within themselves!

Final words

It’s being in news that WHO has declared this disease as an emergency! But no need to worry, our scientists will surely able to boost more vaccines all over the country and world!
