Monkeypox: The world had not yet recovered from the crisis of Corona that a virus named Monkeypox came to the fore. The world knows about this to a very limited extent. All the health agencies around the world have also become alert about this. At the same time, now the World Health Organization has also issued a warning regarding monkeypox. The WHO has said that cases of monkeypox are increasing rapidly among men who have sex with men. In view of the risk of infection, such people should avoid having a relationship with a new partner. This can help prevent such monkeypox from growing.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus advised men to consider reducing their sex partners. Avoid making relationships with new partners. If you are also making a relationship with a new partner, then gather all the necessary information related to monkeypox about him. Only then establish a relationship with him. Tedros said, ‘So far 98 percent of cases are in men who have sex with men, but anyone who comes in contact with them can get monkeypox. This is why WHO is advising countries to take appropriate steps to reduce the risk of infection in vulnerable groups, including children, pregnant women, and those who are immunosuppressed.

Need to spread awareness about monkeypox

He said that to stop the growing threat of monkeypox, at this time the focus of all countries should be on men who have sex with other men. There is a need to spread awareness about monkeypox in the communities of such people. At the same time, countries should also take full care about such men’s rights. We must keep in mind that stigma and discrimination can be as dangerous as any virus.
