London, June 07: Another 77 cases of monkeypox were found in Britain on Monday. As a result, the total number of infected people in the country has crossed 300. This is the largest outbreak of monkeypox outside Africa. According to authorities, the majority of those found infected are gay and bisexual. Authorities, meanwhile, have warned that anyone close to the patient could be infected. The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Sunday that 780 new cases of monkeypox had been reported in more than 24 countries. Outside of Africa, the disease has so far killed no one. The Africa Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said more than 1,400 cases of monkeypox had been reported in Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Congo and Nigeria this year, and that 63 people had died. It is a local epidemic in four African countries. According to the CDC, there is no strong evidence that genome sequencing is linked to the spread of the disease outside of Africa.

According to the WHO, sudden cases of monkeypox in many countries indicate that there has been no recent outbreak of the infection. A leading WHO adviser said last month that the disease had spread to Europe and elsewhere due to sexual activity at two major events in Spain and Belgium. The UK’s Health Protection Agency said last week that gay and bisexual people diagnosed with the infection were between the ages of 20 and 49. Investigations have also suggested that the disease is linked to gay bars and dating apps in the UK and elsewhere.
