. Monkeypox is mild and will usually disappear without treatment but it can be passed on to other people. Although monkeypox is currently rising, health experts are quick to point out the differences between it and Covid-19. Firstly the CDC confirmed that "Monkeypox doesn't spread as easily as common illnesses like Covid-19 or the flu." Whereas Covid spread through respiratory droplets, Monkeypox is far more likely to only be caught through close contact with someone you know. The infection passes through person to person in these ways: any close physical contact with monkeypox blisters or scabs (including during sexual contact, kissing, cuddling or holding hands) touching clothing, bedding or towels used by someone with monkeypox the coughs or sneezes of a person with monkeypox when they're close to you Monkeypox outbreaks are also far more containable than Covid-19. In a news conference led by the World Health Organisation's (WHO) emerging disease lead Maria Van Kerkhove, it was confirmed that "this is a containable situation," the BBC reports. "Transmission is really happening from skin-to-skin contact, most of the people who have been identified have more of a mild disease." The WHO also noted that there was no evidence the infection had mutated.
