“It is important to emphasise that monkeypox does not spread easily between people and the overall risk to the general public is very low,” said Colin Brown, director of clinical and emerging infections at UKHSA.

Monkeypox is a rare viral virus that is closely related to human smallpox, which was eliminated in 1980. Monkeypox is much milder than smallpox, and most affected people recover in a few weeks, although it can be fatal in rare situations.
