TIPS: Things You Can Do To Prevent Monkeypox Virus From Affecting You
The monkeypox virus is common in central Africa.
Monkeypox spreads through direct contact with body fluids or sores on the body of someone who has monkeypox, or with direct contact with materials that have touched body fluids or sores, such as clothing or linens. It may also spread through respiratory secretions when people have close, face-to-face contact.
Avoid contact with animals that could harbor the virus (including animals that are sick or that have been found dead in areas where monkeypox occurs). Avoid contact with any materials, such as bedding, that has been in contact with a sick animal. Isolate infected patients from others who could be at risk for infection. It is very easy for someone to get monkeypox by coming into contact with recently contaminated materials like clothing, bedding and other linens used by an infected person or animal.
