The World Health Organization mentioned that as of Saturday it has confirmed about 92 cases and 28 suspected cases of monkeypox, with recent outbreaks reported in 12 countries where the disease is not typically found, according to the global health agency.


The agency said in a statement Friday, that “WHO is working with the affected countries and others to expand disease surveillance to find and support people who may be affected, and to provide guidance on how to manage the disease.”

The WHO also mentioned that the recent monkeypox outbreaks are unusual because they are occurring in countries where the virus is not endemic. The global health agency is also expecting that more cases will likely be reported in the coming days as surveillance expands.
According to the CDC, the recent data shows that the Monkeypox is spread through close contact. It usually begins with flu-like symptoms and then progresses to body rashes. Study also shows that it can result in death for 1 in 10 people who contract the disease based on observations in Africa.
