More than 85 cases of Monkeypox have been reported in 11 countries across Europe and North America, and in Australia.

Monkeypox typically starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, headache, muscle aches and exhaustion.

People may develop a rash similar to chickenpox, syphilis with fluid-filled blisters called vesicles on the palms of the hands and body.

Symptoms can develop anywhere from five to 21 days after someone is infected.

Humans can get monkeypox from animals, either through bites or scratches or preparing meat from wild game.

There is not a proven treatment for monkeypox, but doctors can treat its symptoms.
