Reuters - A handful of cases of monkeypox have now been reported or are suspected in Britain, Portugal, Spain, as well as the United States. The outbreaks are certainly raising alarms because the viral disease, which spreads through close contact and was first found in monkeys, typically occurs in west and central Africa, and only very occasionally spreads elsewhere. "This isn't going to cause a nationwide epidemic like COVID did, but it's a serious outbreak of a serious disease – and we should take it seriously," said Jimmy Whitworth, a professor of international public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
