Monkeypox Virus





Spread of Monkeypox may occur when a person comes into close contact with an infected human or animal, or materials contaminated with the virus. Monkeypox has not been detected in animals in the UK. The virus can enter the body through broken skin, the respiratory tract, or the mucous membranes (eyes, nose, or mouth).

Person-to-person spread is uncommon, but may occur through:

  • direct contact with Monkeypox skin lesions or scabs
  • coughing or sneezing of an individual with a Monkeypox rash
  • contact with clothing or linens (such as bedding or towels) used by an infected person

The risk of transmission can be substantially reduced by cleaning and disinfection, or by washing clothes or domestic equipment with standard detergents and cleaning products.

In the home transmission can be reduced by the person with Monkeypox performing regular domestic cleaning and washing their own clothing and bed linen in a domestic washing machine.
