Europe at ‘epicentre’ of monkeypox outbreak, WHO says

Euronews says Europe remains at the “epicentre” of a global monkeypox outbreak, the World Health Organization’s European regional office said on Wednesday.

There are 25 countries in the region that have reported more than 1,500 cases — 85% of the global total, they said.

“The magnitude of this outbreak poses a real risk; the longer the virus circulates, the more it will extend its reach, and the stronger the disease’s foothold will get in non-endemic countries,” said the regional director for Europe Hans Kluge.

He urged patients with suspected or confirmed cases to be isolated until their symptoms are resolved.

The majority of patients with monkeypox have been among men who have sex with men with many patients — though not all of them — reporting multiple sexual partners, he added.
