Monkeypox: World Health Organization declares public health emergency of international concern



Published
The rapidly spreading monkeypox outbreak represents a global health emergency, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a media briefing on Saturday.

The WHO label - a "public health emergency of international concern" - is designed to sound an alarm that a coordinated international response is needed and could unlock funding and global efforts to collaborate on sharing vaccines and treatments.

Monkeypox has “spread around the world rapidly through new modes of transmission through which we understand too little,” Tedros said.
