Monkeypox is a disease caused by the Monkeypox virus. It is similar to smallpox, but usually less severe.

Monkeypox occurs mostly in Africa.

The Monkeypox virus is found in some animals, including monkeys, rats, and squirrels. It can spread to humans through contact with the animals or their body parts. Monkeypox can also spread from person to person.

Monkeypox is a serious illness, but it can be treated. Monkeypox can be prevented by vaccination.

The Monkeypox vaccine is not widely available, but it may be given to people who have been exposed to the Monkeypox virus.
