Monkeypox Spread: Corona is not over yet but another pandemic has come in the queue to worry the world. Monkeypox has been declared a public health emergency in America, 9 cases have been reported in India so far. The death of a young man who returned from the UAE in Kerala due to monkeypox was the first death due to the disease in India and Asia. After the arrival of more than 18000 cases of corona in 75 countries in just 3 months, it is now worrying that it may not bring a situation of lockdown like the corona-period in 2020.
World Health Organization (WHO)
The danger is the speed of its spread. Within just 3 months of the first case of monkeypox, more than 18000 cases have been confirmed in 75 countries, no normal spread can be said. Most cases of monkeypox are coming in America, Spain and the UK. There have also been 75 deaths in African countries. It has been declared a health epidemic in many states of America, including countries like New York and California. Here after New York, California has the highest number of cases. The WHO has also declared it a ‘global public health emergency’ on 23 July.

history of epidemics
The world has seen a long history of pandemics even before the corona – the Spanish flu between 1918 and 1920; Cholera Pandemic in 1961; Flu Pandemic between 1968-1969; 1974 Smallpox Epidemic; The spread of the Numonic Plague in Surat, India in 1994. These have also proved to be extremely lethal and deadly in their respective times. Cholera had wiped out many villages at once. But yes, like in the Kovid-era, then there was no chance of being imprisoned in homes, or perhaps the fact of being imprisoned in today’s super-technology-equipped world due to a small disease has become a bigger shock than every thought. Far beyond, seemed unbelievable. In such a situation, that proverb is starting to be realized here – milk burns, buttermilk is drunk and drinks.
in 2014 Swine Flu and Ebola K Dastak had scared the whole world, but he did not prove to be as deadly as Corona and was controlled. The way Ebola was spreading in Africa and its adjoining countries, there was concern about the epidemic for the World Health Organization, but after some time it came under control, the situation became normal. At the time of Kovid in 2020, this ‘Ebola’ became a wrong example that as Ebola was initially frightening but did not spread, Corona will remain the same. The world took the spread of Kovid very lightly and the WHO also took time to declare it a disaster and a pandemic. The result is not hidden from anyone. Now this example will continue to show the world the fear of ‘do not become like Corona’ of every small and big virus in the coming years.

spread of virus diseases It happens more, it is normal and deaths due to it are also common. Before Kovid, India has also been battling virus-borne diseases like Dengue-Chikungunya continuously for the last several years, its deaths have also been seen, but why it has not spread globally, then to that extent about these diseases. Fear did not grow to the extent that Kovid and now monkeypox.
Fear of uncontrolled spread is also a cause for concern
This disease is not only reminding of the corona period of 2020, but there is also a fear that like AIDS, it may also become a cause of social prestige. As the spread of monkeypox increased, the news spread rapidly that monkeypox is also spread through sex relations, especially in gay sex, its spread is more. Although recently the WHO made it clear that if any patient comes in contact with monkeypox infected, it can be transmitted to another, but if this thing is anywhere in people’s mind, then its infection can increase uncontrollably. To control the disease, it will be necessary to have the right treatment with the statistics of the infected and with the utmost care. In such a situation, if like AIDS, it becomes a cause of embarrassment for the people, then the disease will not end, it will flourish and become uncontrolled, then it will not be surprising.
Before 2020, it would have been ridiculous to think that even for a day, the whole world could be imprisoned in their homes, but 2020 showed those days that staying locked in homes for months has become common. People imprisoned in homes are trying to get out of the grip of Corona that a new variant of Kovid comes and cases increase. Now when people were trying to go into their normal lifestyle considering it as a normal thing, suddenly this monkeypox has started showing its eyes to the whole world. Kovid is not over, but with the speed with which it is spreading and spreading, there is bound to be fear among people that this monkeypox may imprison them in homes again.
