Health officials continue to monitor monkeypox cases in Europe and North America – CBC

Spread outside West and Central Africa is unusual; investigation still in early stages

May 23, 2022

The World Health Organization (WHO) does not have evidence that the monkeypox virus has mutated, a senior executive at the United Nations agency said in a briefing on Monday morning, noting the infectious disease that has been endemic in West and Central Africa has tended not to change.

Dr. Rosamund Lewis, head of the smallpox secretariat, which is part of the WHO Emergencies Program, told the briefing that mutations tend to be typically lower with the monkeypox virus, although genome sequencing of cases will help inform understanding of the current outbreak.

Most of the more than 100 suspected and confirmed cases in a recent outbreak in Europe and North America have not been severe, said Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonoses lead, and technical lead on COVID-19.
