Monkeypox – further information

Monkeypox is a rare illness often associated with travel to Central and Western Africa, it is usually a mild illness that does not spread easily between people and usually gets better by itself, with most people recovering within a few weeks.

While the risk to the general population is believed to be low, given that there are a number of UK cases not associated with foreign travel, Public Health Wales are continuing to monitor and investigate the situation.

Further information can be found on the Public Health Wales website.
