The Monkeypox virus may be mutating more than expected according to researchers as cases rise in Europe and the United States.
As of 11 July 2022, Spain was the world's hardest-hit country with 2,034 cases followed by Germany with 1,556, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The United States had 865 cases while Australia recorded 23 cases.
Monkeypox is a much less serious threat than COVID-19 because the virus doesn’t transmit between humans very efficiently with only low chances of hospitalisation, according to medical experts.
