A monkeypox outbreak has been reported in the United Kingdom, Portugal, and Spain. 

Only 36 suspected cases have been reported throughout the three nations, with eight in England and twenty in Portugal. A case has also been recorded in the United States.

However, health experts have no idea where the monkeypox virus was spread. 

There's also the danger that the virus is spreading unnoticed throughout the population, maybe via a new channel of dissemination.

"This [outbreak] is truly rare," epidemiologist Susan Hopkins, the U.K. Health Security Agency's (UKHSA) chief medical adviser, said in a statement on Monday.

"The precise location and manner in which they [the patients] got their diseases are still under review," the agency stated in a statement.

Fever, bodily aches, enlarged lymph nodes, and finally "pox," or painful, fluid-filled blisters on the face, hands, and feet, are all symptoms of monkeypox. 

One kind of monkeypox is particularly dangerous, killing up to 10% of those infected. 

The current English version is softer. It has a mortality rate of less than 1%. A case usually takes two to four weeks to conclude.

Monkeypox is usually caught from animals in West Africa or Central Africa and spread to other nations. Person-to-person transmission is uncommon since it necessitates direct contact with bodily fluids like saliva or pus from lesions. 

As a result, the risk to the public at large is negligible, according to the UK health authorities.
