Everything you need to know about monkeypox
According to the World Health Organization, as of August 12, 34,448 confirmed cases of monkeypox had been reported in 82 countries. There were also 11 deaths due to this. In India too, due to some cases of monkeypox, preparations have begun to reduce the risk. Although there is no vaccine for it yet, prevention is considered the only treatment.
After infection, a red rash begins to appear on the person’s body. Fluid coming out of these grains can also cause them to expand. Therefore, patients suffering from monkeypox are advised to remain in quarantine.
The incubation period of the monkeypox virus is 6 to 13 days. It can also last from 5 to 21 days. Symptoms such as fever, severe headache, body aches and fatigue may appear within five days of infection. Until a monkeypox vaccine is available, the only treatment is to try to prevent infection.

Do not come into contact with infected people with your pets. According to WHO officials, monkeypox can be transmitted from human to animal.

WHO recommends that pets be separated from the family if they are infected with the virus. Earlier there was no information about it, but now people have got a message to take precautions.
The U.S. National Public Health Agency’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has also issued a monkeypox warning, advising pet owners to avoid petting, petting, kissing or sharing food with their infected pets.
According to this guideline, infected animals can transmit monkeypox virus to humans, and infected humans can transmit it to animals. According to the CDC, there have been 12,689 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the US so far.
Preparations are underway for the development of a monkeypox vaccine in India
The infection of this disease, which has spread throughout the world, has also reached India. In India too, due to some cases of monkeypox, preparations have begun to reduce the risk. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) plans to develop a monkeypox vaccine and diagnostic kit in collaboration with the National Institute of Virology.
More than 19 thousand cases of monkeypox have been reported worldwide. In most cases, doctors treat this disease with the measles vaccine. But there is no vaccine for it yet. So you have to be very careful.
