Monkeypox is spread by close contact with an infected human, an infected animal, or materials contaminated with the virus. The virus can be transferred via broken skin, respiratory contact, or the mucous membranes (eyes, nose, or mouth) or via infected bed linen. 

People may experience a fever, headaches, Flu-like symptoms, swollen glands, a rash, exhaustion and backache. The rash and appearance of skin eruptions typically change over time. 

Most patients experience a mild, self-limiting illness, with spontaneous and complete recovery seen within 3 weeks of onset. However, severe illness can occur and sometimes results in death. 

Incubation period is between 5-21 days. 

If you have had close contact with a Monkeypox case, or experiencing symptoms, please report to your local Health Protection Team immediately and do not attend our clinics.
