WHO declares monkeypox global health emergency as outbreak spreads worldwide

by Ryan King


The World Health Organization declared the rapidly spreading monkeypox outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern.”

The declaration marks the second time the WHO has activated its highest public health alert in the last two years, with the first instance being used to alert people to the threat of COVID-19 that has ravaged the international community.

“We have an outbreak that has spread around the world rapidly through new modes of transmission, about which we understand too little, and which meets the criteria” for a public health emergency, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the WHO, told reporters, per the New York Times.
