How Did Monkey Pox Start?

edMonkey pox is a rare viral zoonotic disease, which is native to Central and West Africa and is believed to have originated from human contact with a wild animal infected with the monkeypox virus. The primary transmission route of the virus is believed to be between humans and animals through direct contact with an infected animal or mammal. Additionally, the secondary transmission of the virus is believed to be through contact with contaminated material such as bedding, clothing, and household items.

Monkey pox has also been linked to the consumption of inadequately cooked bushmeat.
