Monkeypox patterns of transmission ‘not typical,’ but virus is ‘containable’: WHO

Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, an infectious disease epidemiologist and COVID-19 technical lead at the World Health Organization (WHO), said Monday during a Q&A on monkeypox that the patterns of transmission of the virus are “not typical.” However, she explained that the virus is “containable,” especially in Europe and North America, which has seen less of the disease.
