How Is Monkey Pox Transmitted??

Monkeypox is usually transmitted through direct contact with an infected animal, such as a monkey, rat, or squirrel; through contact with the animal’s bedding, food, or cage; or through contact with an infected human. It can also be transmitted through the air if the virus is released from something that was infected. The most common way someone can become infected is through direct contact with contaminated body fluids such as saliva, mucus, urine, or feces.

Symptoms usually appear within 7-14 days after exposure.
