Places where you are most likely to catch Monkeypox – don’t eat this that

Monkeypox is spreading around the world and in multiple US states – and virus experts are closely monitoring the situation. “Currently, we are not concerned about a global pandemic,” says dr. Rosamund Lewis of the World Health Organization† “We are concerned that individuals could acquire monkeypox infection from high-risk exposure if they do not have the information they need to protect themselves.” Monkeypox is spread through respiratory droplets, skin-to-skin contact, and bodily fluids — so here are places you’re likely to catch it.

Monkeypox is spread through respiratory droplets and bodily fluids, so indoor bars and restaurants are particularly risky. “Any close contact spreads”, says Blossom Damania, a virologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Gyms are prime locations for accidentally passing respiratory droplets to another person. “Every time there’s an outbreak — and the more people get infected — the more likely Monkeypox is to adapt to humans,” says Jay Hooper of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases

Spas should be avoided during the monkeypox outbreak, due to possible close contact with other people in an enclosed environment and possible spread of the virus. “We expect more cases to be detected. We are asking countries to monitor more closely,” says Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO’s Covid-19 technical leader† “This is a manageable situation. It will be difficult, but it is a manageable situation in the non-endemic countries.”

Nail salons are another place where people are forced into close physical contact. “It’s a difficult virus to transmit between people,” says dr. Michael Head, a leading global health expert from the University of Southampton, UK† “It needs very close contact, for example skin-to-skin contact with a person who is contagious with monkeypox rash. There will have been close contact between these new cases.”

While anyone can get monkey pox, members of the gay and bisexual community are advised to exercise caution. “Based on currently available information, cases have been identified primarily, but not exclusively, in men who have sex with men seeking care in primary care and sexual health clinics,” says the WHO

“It doesn’t mean gay or bisexual men are doing something inherently wrong, or that the virus has changed or that it’s being transmitted sexually, it just means that this behavior facilitates transmission in these networks.” says Mateo Prochazka, infectious disease epidemiologist at the UK Health and Security Agency† “We wanted to make sure people understand that transmission isn’t exclusive to gay and bisexual men, it just happens to have entered this network.”

Follow the basics of public health and help end this pandemic wherever you live – get vaccinated or fortified as soon as possible; if you live in an area with a low vaccination coverage, wear an N95 face maskdon’t travel, social distancing, avoid large crowds, don’t go in with people you don’t hide with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, and to protect your life and that of others, don’t visit any of these 35 places you are most likely to get COVID
