While the world is amidst the deadly pandemic COVID-19, another outbreak of a rare virus, Monkeypox has been confirmed by the World Health Organisation. The UAE has also reported cases of Monkeypox and the health ministry is stepping up safety measures to guard against the potential spread of the virus.

The recent report by the WHO upholds that viruses are spread through rodents such as rats, mice, squirrels, and other species of animals. And it can be transmitted from animals to humans and from humans to humans through close physical contact such as sexual intercourse, transmission through bodily fluids, consuming improperly cooked infected meats, coming in close contact with infected animals, and coming in contact with surfaces contaminated by rodents, etc.

Symptoms.
According to health professionals, the prominent early symptoms of Monkeypox are fever, body rashes, body ache, swollen lymph nodes, intense headache, etc. In adults, the symptoms are easy to identify while in children, the early signs appear to be similar to smallpox or chickenpox. It is advised to be careful and not take even the small changes in kids lightly since they can occur in both adults and kids.
