With more than 18,000 cases of monkeypox in 78 countries around the world, the World Health Organization has issued a new warning about having sex with a certain group.

Who is so warned? What does it say? What does monkeying have to do with sex?

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, said that countries, communities, and individuals must take this risk seriously and take measures to prevent the spread and protect vulnerable groups.

He also offers some other tips to reduce the chance of getting ringworm.

He said that heterosexual men should take preventive measures such as reducing the number of sexual partners they currently have, reconsidering having sex with a new sexual partner, and sharing their contact information with new sexual partners.

So far, 98 percent of cases of genital warts have been heterosexual men;

However, he said that anyone can be affected by ringworm.

It is possible to get infected with monkeypox not only through sex, but also by touching infected cloths, bedding, hugging and kissing.

He also said that countries should focus on social groups of men who engage in same-sex relationships to reduce the risk of infection and prevent further spread of the disease.

He said that adequate care should be provided to the victims and their human rights and dignity should be protected.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that misperceptions and discrimination against measles, like any other virus, could increase the spread of the disease.

He said that like the Covid-19 pandemic, false information and untruthful information spread rapidly through the internet and called on social media companies, technology companies and news organizations to stop and act against them.

There is no single vaccine for monkeypox. Because the virus that causes mumps is similar to the virus that causes smallpox, the smallpox vaccine provides up to 85 percent protection against mumps.

There are two types of mumps viruses, the West African type and the Central African type.

Early symptoms include fever, headache, swelling, back pain, muscle pain. After that, when the fever comes, the rash occurs. It first appears on the face and then spreads to other parts of the body. It usually spreads to the palms and soles of the feet.

Itchiness increases and it becomes painful. After that, scabies develops in various stages. Then it disappears. But blisters can cause scarring.

The infection usually clears up on its own within 14-21 days.

However sometimes, it can cause serious side effects. There are also reports that it has caused deaths in West African countries.
