Geneva: The World Health Organization has advised people to reduce their sex partners to reduce the risk of monkey measles infection. This announcement comes amid warnings that the infection can spread rapidly through people who have more than one sexual partner. More than 18,000 people in 78 countries around the world have been affected by this infection so far.
From last year 2019 till now, corona pandemic has claimed around 63,82,183 human lives around the world. Vaccines that have been invented to prevent infection have significantly reduced the death toll. In this case, monkey measles has emerged as a new threat to the human race and to children. The World Health Organization has also declared an emergency over the outbreak.

The World Health Organization has expressed fear that the incidence of monkey measles is increasing suddenly in European countries such as Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Britain etc. Of the total number of infections so far, 70 percent have been detected in Europe and 25 percent in the United States. The infection is spread by bites or scratches from rodents such as rats and squirrels, eating wild animal meat, close contact with a person infected with monkey measles, and mixing with water from blisters.
The disease was first discovered in monkeys, hence it is known as monkey measles and monkey pox. Monkey measles is an infectious disease caused by the monkeypox virus, a member of the smallpox family, that affects mammals, both animals and humans. The first symptoms are fever, headache, body aches, malaise, and feeling tired. Following this, blisters and rashes may appear.
It can lead to death if not treated immediately. In this case, two people were confirmed to be infected with this disease in the Indian state of Kerala a few days ago. Following this, one more person has been confirmed to have this infection yesterday. So far 4 people have been infected with monkey measles in India.
In this case, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom explained the reason for the rapid spread of the infection. Accordingly, this viral infection is divided into two types. One is centered on Central Africa. The other is centered on West Africa. He explained that the virus centered in Central Africa is serious. Athanom also noted that the infection is spreading rapidly among men who have more than one sexual partner and men who are bisexual.
The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of a study of 528 people about this infection. At the end of the study, 95 percent were affected by the infection through sexual activity. Of these, 98 percent were affected by bisexual or bisexual men.
In an interview to ANI, Dr. Thiren Gupta, senior consultant at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Delhi, said that the infection can easily spread to others by hugging, kissing, having sex with them and touching their private parts. Not only this, the virus can also be spread by touching the contaminated clothes of an infected person, Thiren Gupta said.

In the meantime, to control the spread of infection, men who are attracted to tan should avoid having sex with a new partner, WHO chief Adhanom has emphasized. He also emphasized that it is time to consider such new relationships and even if there is such a relationship, the full information of the partner should be collected. The monkey measles outbreak that started last May has killed 5 people so far. 10 percent recovered.
Although it can be spread through sex, researchers have warned that the infection can easily spread to others by touching the clothes of infected people. They warn that not only men who are attracted to dhanpal but also children, pregnant women and immunocompromised people are also susceptible to this infection.
WHO has said that although vaccination against this infection has been decided, we do not recommend universal vaccination worldwide. The WHO has also categorically stated that the vaccine does not provide an instant cure against the infection.
As monkeypox cases surge globally, the World Health Organization called Wednesday on the group currently most affected by the virus — men who have sex with men — to limit their sexual partners.
