Monkeypox does not carry the risk of mutations like a corona.

Monkeypox virus is not new, this disease spreads through skin-to-skin contact, scientific understanding is very much about it, and there are vaccines and medicines for the prevention and treatment of the disease. There is no mutation in this virus.

Monkeypox has spread to 70 countries across the African continent in the last three months. This is a country where this disease has never been seen before. Due to the wide spread of this disease, recently on 23 July 2022, the World Health Organization declared it a Public Health Emergency of International Curse. In the past 13 years, the World Health Organization has declared 7 different diseases as Public Health Emergency of International Cursive 7 times. Prior to this disease, Kovid 19 was also declared a Public Health Emergency of International Cursive in January 2020. A few days later, on March 11, 2020, Corona displayed a global pandemic. Right now, people could not recover from the Kovid epidemic, and Monkey Pox was declared a world pandemic. This has created a state of anxiety and tension among the people. But is it dangerous like corona, and how much more should we worry about being worried?

What happens if you get monkeypox?

First of all, understand that monkeypox is less likely to become a global pandemic, I did this for several main reasons, first of all, it is not a new virus, but scientific understanding about it for the last several years. And this disease spreads only through skin-to-skin contact. Due to this, the speed of its rapid spread is less. Whereas the coronavirus spreads rapidly in the air. Monkeypox virus does not form new forms like we have seen new forms of the virus in covid. There was no medicine for corona, but both medicine and treatment for monkeypox are available. That's why I don't think the public is so worried.

Where did monkey pox come from?

Monkey pox's symptoms are similar to any other common disease, such as chickenpox, including fever, body aches, cramps, rash, and enlargement of certain glands in the body. The possibility of monkeypox can be considered only when a person has returned from traveling abroad. Or it may have come from a place where there has been an outbreak of this disease, an interesting thing is also that the name of this disease has been linked to monkeys. Because its virus was first found in some monkeys in the laboratory of Denmark, but one thing is also that this disease does not spread from monkeys to humans.

 WHO declares a global health emergency?

Now the question comes that if it is not very dangerous then why was it declared a public health emergency? The reason is that when a disease poses a threat to the countries of the world, then according to the World Health Organization International Regulation 2005, a disease is declared a Public Health Emergency of International Carson, when such a situation arises due to that disease. Which is extraordinary. Due to this, there is a possibility of spreading the disease internationally and there is a high risk to the public in public. It was not easy for the organization to take a decision and it was the first time in the last seven times that the members of the Emergency Committee did not agree with the mutual opinion. Despite this, the World Health Organization gave it the status of emergency, alerting all the countries and advised to take special measures and steps to deal with it. This decision of the organization reminds the governments of the countries of the world that there should not be any relaxation in the preparations to deal with it. The economic allocation should be increased immediately and all the countries should work together.
