The global spread of monkeypox outside Africa is causing alarm, but experts say it is not likely to infect people like the coronavirus epidemic has. First identified in monkeys, monkeypox typically spreads through close contact and largely occurs in west and central Africa. Monkeypox is usually a mild viral illness, with symptoms including fever and a distinctive bumpy rash. While the disease is usually found in Africa, several cases of monkeypox have been reported recently in Britain, Portugal, Spain, Australia, Germany and the United States.
