Scientists are skeptical that any such announcement will help in curbing it as developed countries registering the outbreak are already taking swift steps to contain it

In the midst of the Corona epidemic, now monkeypox is spreading its legs rapidly in countries around the world. The disease has now spread to 42 countries. At the same time, 3417 cases have been reported so far. The World Health Organization has called a meeting of its emergency committee regarding this. Whether or not to declare a global emergency regarding the outbreak of monkeypox can be considered in the meeting. The declaration of a global emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) over monkeypox would mean that the UN health agency considers the outbreak an "extraordinary event" and remains at risk of spreading to other countries.

This announcement by WHO will inspire the world to take similar steps against monkeypox, similar to the ongoing efforts to eradicate the corona epidemic and polio.

However, scientists are skeptical that any such announcement will help in curbing it as the developed countries which have registered the outbreak are already taking rapid steps to control it. Last week, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanam Ghebreyesus said that the virus has been found in more than forty countries. It is worth noting that the outbreak of this virus, which has been present in Central and West Africa for decades, is also being seen in European countries.

At the same time, the World Health Network has declared the outbreak of monkeypox as a pandemic. The World Health Network is a global grouping of scientific and civic teams. The World Health Network said that the virus has spread to 58 countries so far and 3417 cases have been reported. At present, its outbreak is spreading rapidly in many continents. The World Health Network has asked the World Health Organization to take immediate action.
