The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has detected two additional cases of monkeypox, one in London and one in the South East of England.

The UKHSA said: “The two latest cases have no travel links to a country where monkeypox is endemic, so it is possible they acquired the infection through community transmission.”

In total, this amounts to seven cases in London, one in the South East of England and one in the North East.

Monkeypox is typically spread through close contact, though some of the recent cases have been linked to sexual contact.
