Monkeypox virus warning: FOUR more cases of infectious disease in UK – 'this is rare'


According to The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA): “The four new cases do not have known connections with the previous confirmed cases announced on May 14 and the case announced on May 7.”

In total, this amounts to six cases in London since May 7th, and now one in the North East.

There is currently no link to travel to a country where monkeypox is endemic, and exactly where and how the patients acquired their infections remains under urgent investigation.

The UKHSA says it is investigating whether they have further links to each other.
