Monkeypox cannot be directly transmitted from person to person, but rather through contact with an infected animal or human or through contact with infected bodily fluids. Thus, the best way to catch monkeypox is to come into contact with an infected host.
This contact can be either direct or indirect, such as through contaminated bedding, clothing, or other objects. Additionally, mosquito and other insect bites can be sources of infection, as they are able to carry the virus from one host to another. It is important to practice good hygiene and maintain distance from potential hosts in order to avoid catching monkeypox.
