ATLANTA – Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a risk assessment that further spread of the monkeypox virus could significantly affect public health.
Especially if the spread occurs in high-risk groups, such as people with immune disorders (immunodeficiency) and groups of children.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that “the public health risk could be high if this virus took advantage of the opportunity to establish itself as a human pathogen and spread to a larger population, such as children, the immunocompromised, and others at an abnormally high rate.” greater risk of contracting a serious disease,” he said.
According to the agency, urgent action is needed from all countries in the world to control the spread among vulnerable groups.
“This can prevent the spread of monkeypox to the general public and prevent the spread of monkeypox as a clinical condition and public health problem in non-endemic countries,” the WHO said.
It’s too early to quote the CNN website at last week’s press conference by the deputy director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Department of Pathogenesis and Pathology High Score on Friday, June 3, 2022. Experts are still “hopeful” for assess whether the virus is native to the United States.
“I think it’s still early in the investigation,” said Dr. McQuiston.
He said the virus had not become a pandemic since the last outbreak of monkeypox in the United States in 2003.
“Hopefully we can beat this too,” said Dr. McQuiston.
The European Centers for Disease Control also assessed last week, saying there was no evidence that the virus had settled in US wildlife after authorities began an “active crackdown on animals detected during outbreaks” in 2003. McCuston. .
The European Center for Disease Control “the chances of this leak occurring are very low.
Amish Adalja, a senior fellow at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health and Safety at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, said the monkeypox virus was not the first virus to dominate animal populations in the United States.
the doctor said. . Let’s go
Michael Warroby, an evolutionary biologist and professor at the University of Arizona in the US, said there was much unknown where the monkeypox outbreak was headed.
“What we’re finding here in real time, in real time, is that we know very little about what’s going on, and I think it’s too early to say for sure,” Professor Whoopi said.
