According to the Butanton Institute, monkey pox (monkey pox) is “a wild zoonosis” – a virus that infects monkeys and, incidentally, can affect humans.

The infection is most commonly found in the forests of Central and West Africa. Disease caused by the monkeypox virus in the orthopox virus family.

There are two types of viruses: West African and Congo Basin (Central Africa).

Although smallpox in West Africa is sometimes severe for some people, the disease is usually self-limiting (no treatment required).

The mortality rate for West African virus is 1% for non-vaccinated, whereas for Congo basin virus it can reach up to 10%.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), young children are also at higher risk and smallpox in pregnancy can lead to complications, smallpox or even death in the baby.

The WHO is currently working with experts to adopt a new name for Monkey Pox, as the term “Monkey Pox” is considered discriminatory and stigmatizing.


Early symptoms of monkey pox are:

  • Heat
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Back pain
  • Swollen nodes (lymph nodes)
  • Chills
  • Tired
In addition, the disease can cause skin lesions that first develop on the face and then spread to other parts of the body, including the genitals.

Skin lesions are similar to chickenpox or syphilis. Crusts still form, which eventually close.


According to Butanton, the source of the infection in the reported cases has not yet been confirmed by the WHO.

In general, monkeypox can be transmitted through contact with drops released by an infected person (human or animal) or through skin lesions in addition to materials such as clothing and blankets.

The incubation period is usually six to 13 days, but can range from five to 21 days. Therefore, infected people need to be isolated and monitored for three weeks.


While considering the treatment, Button reported that vaccination against common chickenpox has proven to be protective against monkey chickenpox.

Although vaccines (MVA-BN) and specific treatments (tecovirimat) have been approved in 2019 and 2022, immunization measures are not yet widely available.

Worldwide, people under the age of 40 or 50 are no longer vaccinated, as campaigns have been discontinued.

In the UK, smallpox vaccination is being given to people at high risk and with comorbidities.
