Here's everything you need to know about the monkeypox outbreak

Monkeypox — a rare disease usually found in Central and West Africa and among those who have travelled there — has been detected in the US, Australia and a number of European countries. It usually causes flu-like symptoms and puss-filled boils that get better within two to four weeks. Unlike COVID-19, which is highly contagious, monkeypox doesn't usually spread easily among people. Scientists are urgently investigating why it is spreading in an unusual way outside of Africa.
