Supplementary Files



As the world is still under the grip of COVID-19, “WHO” has started alerting about the new global emergency due to a surge in cases of the Monkeypox virus (MPXV) disease (MPXD). MPXD is a rare viral zoonotic disease, caused by the monkeypox virus, which results in multiple centrifugal rashes similar to smallpox. The current unusual high frequency of transmission has lead to the WHO alert because, human-to-human transmission has been observed in Europe, without a history of travel to endemic areas. So, further spread of the virus can be anticipated through close contact, being a threat for its transmission. It is thus necessary for our government to prepare itself for handling this new situation which could spread fast due to globalization.
