It seems as though right when everything is starting to return to normal, a new virus has begun to spread throughout different regions of the world.

But what is that virus? Monkeypox.

Recently, multiple countries that are not normally prone to monkeypox epidemics reported cases of the disease to the World Health Organization. Some of these countries include Spain, the Netherlands, and the United States of America.

The disease originated in the region of West Africa and has started to spread to various other areas of the world.

Many countries are already preparing for the worst and ordering thousands of vaccines even though cases are still low.

One of these countries that are being proactive is Germany which ordered over 40,000 doses of the vaccine to distribute to infected and exposed people throughout the country as time goes on.

German leaders believe that if they are proactive, this virus will not trigger another pandemic which you can read more about using the link below.
