Monkeypox is a rare, viral zoonotic infection that can spread from animal to person and from person to person.
Although cases of monkeypox are increasing alarmingly in various parts of the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) says that in most cases, monkeypox symptoms go away on their own within a few weeks.
However, the Global Health Agency warns against complications caused by the monkeypox virus, including secondary skin infections, pneumonia, confusion and eye problems. In the past, between 1% and 10% of people infected with monkeypox died, says the WHO.
