Monkeypox cases confirmed in England

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection that does not spread easily between people.
Two individuals have been diagnosed with monkeypox in London, confirms the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).
The cases live together in the same household. They are not linked to the previous confirmed case announced on 7 May. Where and how they acquired their infection remains under investigation.

Symptoms :

Initial symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion.

A rash can develop, often beginning on the face, then spreading to other parts of the body, particularly the hands and feet.

The rash changes and goes through different stages before finally forming a scab, which later falls off.
