Smallpox of the monkey: WHO convenes its emergency committee, the maximum alert soon triggered?

The appointment is set for June 23. There, the WHO could well raise the Monkeypox to the rank of an international public health emergency, the highest level of alert.

1,600 confirmed cases, 72 suspected cases, 72 deaths and 39 affected countries, 32 of which were newly affected: this is the latest state of play by theWorld Health Organization (WHO).

„I think it is now clear that there is an unusual situation, which means that the virus behaves unusually compared to how he behaved in the past “WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference in Geneva on Tuesday. “But it is also affecting more and more countries, and we believe that there is also a need for a coordinated response due to geographical spread.”.
