WHO warns of repeating COVID mistakes with threat of monkeypox

Africa must be part of a united global fight against monkeypox as developed countries respond to unusual outbreaks of the disease, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

“We need to have a connected global response to monkeypox to prevent it from becoming endemic in more countries,” D. Matshidiso Moeti, WHO director for Africa, said in an online briefing.

As countries in the developed world find ways to limit the spread of monkeypox, “it’s very important that … we make sure we share these tools, we build capacity around the world to respond to these outbreaks,” he said. she declared.

“What is critically important now is to avoid any risk of a repeat of the inequitable access to COVID-19 vaccines that African countries were experiencing at the start of the pandemic,” Dr Moeti said.

Monkeypox is a virus that can cause symptoms such as fever, body aches, and a characteristic bumpy rash.
