Topic: Apart from COVID-19, there is new Virus now leading to another Pandemic.

It was late 2019 when the world was hit about a virus called Covid-19. Even though it was killing many people, not many thought that it will lead to a world pandemic.

By the year 2020, it was already a world disaster and caught many governments off guards.

It has been reported now that there is another virus which is leading to pandemic. Monkeypox is currently following the Covid-19 footsteps.

Monkeypox (MPX) is a zoonotic disease and is currently the most prevalent orthopoxvirus infection in humans after the eradication of smallpox and the cessation of universal smallpox vaccination.

Minister in the Presidency Mondli Gungubele in the republic of South Africa says South Africa will stay on alert and take advice from the Department of Health regarding the Monkeypox virus that has been detected in the United States of America and United Kingdom, outside Central and West Africa where it is usually found.
