  • Monkeypox cases in UK

    Two more people have been diagnosed with monkeypox in England.

    The individuals live in the same household but are not linked to the previous case announced on 7 May, according to the UK Health Security Agency.

    Of the two new cases, one was receiving care at St Mary's Hospital in London and the other was isolating, the agency said.

    Monkeypox is a rare viral infection from which most people recover in a few weeks, according to the NHS.

    "The overall risk to the general public remains very low," said Dr Colin Brown from the UKHSA.
