Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has claimed that monkeypox will not become a pandemic. The exact cause of the virus has not yet been determined. Monkeypox patients have been found all over the world since the beginning of May. More than 435 cases of monkeypox have been reported in 24 countries around the world. As per the current data, it is not easily transmitted like other viruses like covid 19 and RNA virus. “At the moment, we are not concerned about a global pandemic,” said Rosamund Lewis, a WHO official. However, he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat President Conte’s government. The virus first appeared in gay and bisexual men. No case has been reported in India so far but vigilance has been increased. Mumbai Airport and Mumbai Municipal Corporation are on alert regarding monkeypox virus.
