World Health Organization calls for Health Emergency as Monkeypox is on the rise

Luke 21:11 “There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”

Important Takeaways:

  • WHO declares rapidly spreading Monkeypox outbreak a global health emergency
  • The rare designation means the WHO now views the outbreak as a significant enough threat to global health that a coordinated international response is needed.
  • Europe is the epicenter of the outbreak. Right now, men who have sex with men are putting the community at highest risk.
  • The WHO chief said the global risk is moderate, but the threat is high in Europe.
  • Monkeypox is unlikely to disrupt international trade or travel right now, the WHO chief said.
  • More than 16,000 cases of Monkeypox have been reported across more than 70 countries so far this year, and the number of confirmed infections rose 77% from late June through early July,
  • The U.S. has reported more than 2,500 Monkeypox cases so far across 44 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
  • Infectious disease experts are concerned that health authorities have failed to contain the outbreak, and Monkeypox will permanently take root in countries where the virus wasn’t previously found with the exception of isolated cases linked to travel.
