However, he said there is a vaccine available but not in Ghana. “But I don’t think we have reached a stage where we will call for vaccination in Ghana,” he said.

The monkeypox virus, which belongs to the same virus family as smallpox, causes monkeypox. It spreads through droplets in the air or through contact with fluid from open wounds. Anyone who has been diagnosed with monkeypox or fears they may have it should stay away from others.

Fever, headache, muscle aches, and tiredness are the first symptoms of monkeypox. The fundamental distinction between smallpox and monkeypox symptoms is that monkeypox causes swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy), but smallpox does not.
