Cases of monkeypox have been detected in 11 Mexican cities.
Monkeypox cases increase rapidly in America
In America too, increasing cases of monkeypox are scaring people. New York City on Tuesday asked the World Health Organization (WHO) to rename the monkeypox virus so as not to stigmatize patients who could later stop seeking care. New York has seen more cases of the disease. The idea of renaming the virus, which is related to the smallpox virus, was mooted by the WHO during a press conference last month.
Monkeypox cases increased rapidly in European countries
At the same time, due to the increasing cases of monkeypox, the concern of the health department as well as the common people has increased a lot.
