BE ALERT

Monkeypox declared global health emergency by WHO – World Health Organisation

The head of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared the monkeypox outbreak a “global health emergency”.

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference that despite the WHO committee being unable to come to a consensus, he declared the emergency anyway as the tie-breaking vote.

He added the risk globally is “moderate”, except in Europe where it is “high”.

Dr Ghebreyesus said there had been more than 16,000 cases of monkeypox reported to the WHO from 75 countries, and five deaths.

The declaration by the WHO is designed to trigger an international response to the outbreak, which could unlock funding and vaccine sharing.

The disease has had a foothold in parts of central and west Africa for decades, and was not known to trigger large outbreaks beyond the continent.

However, in May, authorities in the US and western Europe detected dozens of outbreaks.

Monkeypox joins COVID-19, Ebola, and Zika on the list of previously declared global health emergencies.
