London, ap. The outbreak of monkeypox is increasing. So far this dangerous virus has spread to 42 countries of the world and about 3,417 cases have been reported. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called a meeting of its emergency committee on Thursday regarding this rapidly spreading infection. Whether or not to declare a global emergency regarding the outbreak of monkeypox can be considered in the meeting.
The World Health Organization’s (WHO) declaration of a global emergency over monkeypox would mean that the UN health agency considers the outbreak an “extraordinary event” and remains at risk of spreading to other countries. This announcement by WHO will inspire the world to take similar steps against monkeypox, similar to the ongoing efforts to eradicate the corona epidemic and polio.
However, scientists are skeptical that any such announcement will help in curbing it, as developed countries that have registered the outbreak are already taking rapid steps to contain it. Last week, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanam Ghebreyesus said that the virus has been found in more than 40 countries. It is worth noting that the outbreak of this virus, which has been present in Central and West Africa for decades, is also being seen in European countries.
At the same time, according to the report of news agency IANS, the World Health Network (WHN) has declared the outbreak of monkeypox as a pandemic. The World Health Network is a global grouping of scientific and civic teams. WHN said that the virus has spread to 58 countries so far and 3,417 cases have been reported. At present, its outbreak is spreading rapidly in many continents. WHN has demanded immediate action from the World Health Organization.
