On 6 May 2022, a monkeypox epidemic was reported, commencing with a British citizen who displayed symptoms compatible with monkeypox on 29 April 2022 after visiting Nigeria (where the disease is endemic). On 4 May, the resident returned to the United Kingdom, becoming the outbreak's index case in the country. Handling bushmeat, an animal bite or scrape, body fluids, contaminated objects, or close contact with an infected human can all spread monkeypox. Fever, headaches, muscle problems, swollen lymph nodes, and tiredness are the first symptoms. The current treatment standard is tecovirimat, an antiviral that is specifically designed to treat orthopoxvirus infections like smallpox and monkeypox.
