Britain now confirms 20 cases of monkeypox

Eleven new cases of monkeypox have been confirmed in the UK, the Health Secretary said.

Ajid Javid tweeted that he had updated G7 health ministers on what was known about the spread of the virus. There are now 20 cases registered in the UK.

He said: “Most cases are mild and I can confirm that we have sourced further doses of vaccines that are effective against monkeypox.”

The UK government has some stocks of the smallpox vaccine which can be effective against monkeypox as the viruses are quite similar.

Monkeypox cases are usually found in West Africa, and the virus doesn’t often spread elsewhere.

For this reason, outbreaks reported across Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States have raised alarms among public health experts.
