How is monkeypox transmitted?

The NHS has said monkeypox can be can be caught from infected wild animals in parts of west and central Africa.

It can also be transmitted from touching clothing, bedding or towels used by someone with the monkeypox rash, via coughs or sneezes and touching monkeypox skin blisters or scabs.

However, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has said there is a low risk of transmission in the UK population. The NHS explained it is uncommon to get monkeypox from another person.

Speaking of the latest cases, Colin Brown at UKHSA said in a statement: “While investigations remain ongoing to determine the source of infection, it is important to emphasise it does not spread easily between people and requires close personal contact with an infected symptomatic person.

“The overall risk to the general public remains very low.”
