Monkeypox is spread from person to person through close contact with an infected person. This includes, but is not limited to, mouth-to-mouth, face to face, mouth to skin, and skin to skin contact. Most obviously, sexual contact with an infected person is likely to result in transmission.

The WHO has disclosed that EVERYONE is at EQUAL risk of contracting monkeypox. However, MANY cases of monkeypox so far have been confirmed among homosexual men.

Many of the cases that have been reported in this outbreak have been identified among men who have sex with men. Given that the virus is currently moving from person to person in these social networks, men who have sex with men may currently be at higher risk of being exposed if they have close contact with someone who is infectious.


The most common symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, back pain, low energy, and swollen lymph nodes. This is followed or accompanied by the development of a rash which can last for two to three weeks. The rash can be found on the face, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, eyes, mouth, throat, groin, and genital and/or anal regions of the body. The number of lesions can range from one to several thousand. Lesions begin flat, then fill with liquid before they crust over, dry up and fall off, with a fresh layer of skin forming underneath.
