How does the monkeypox virus spread?

A person can contract the monkeypox virus by coming into close contact with someone who has the rash, including by face-to-face, skin-to-skin, mouth-to-mouth, or mouth-to-skin contact, including through sexual interaction.

Anybody who comes into contact with infected objects, surfaces, objects, bedding, towels, clothing, gadgets, or other items is at risk of developing the disease. It’s also possible to contract a virus from clothing, bedding, or towels, or from breathing in skin flakes.

What are the symptoms of the monkeypox virus?

  • Fever
  • Skin rashes (starting from the face and spreading to arms, legs, palms and soles)
  • Lymph node enlargement
  • Headache, muscle ache or exhaustion
  • Sore throat and cough

Symptoms normally last two to three weeks and disappear on their own or with supportive treatment, such as fever-relieving drugs or painkillers. Until all lesions have crusted over, all scabs have fallen off, and a fresh layer of skin has developed underneath, a person is still contagious.

Who are at higher risk of catching the virus?

Pregnant women, children, and those who are immunocompromised are at higher risk for severe disease or complications.
