**Monkey Pox can be avoided by following good hygiene, such as washing your hands often with soap and water, avoiding contact with animals (especially sick animals) and avoiding contact with fluids and materials (e. g. bedding, clothing, etc.
) that may have been contaminated with the virus. Vaccinations against the virus are also recommended.
People should also wear protective clothing, such as gloves, face masks and goggles, when handling animals or ill people. It is also important to practise good housekeeping and sanitisation measures, such as regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and objects that may come into contact with bodily fluids. **
