Confirmed cases of monkeypox are a rare event in the UK, and the risk to the general public is very low, says PHW’s consultant in health protection, Richard Firth.

Symptoms of monkeypox are fever, rash, and enlarged lymph nodes are common symptoms of the infection. Primarily transmission to humans takes place by wild animals such as rats and monkeys, although it can also be passed from person to person.
