As of Saturday, 92 confirmed cases and 28 suspected cases of monkeypox were under investigation in 12 countries, the World Health Organization said in a news release.

Confirmed cases have been identified in Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States -- which had between one and five confirmed monkeypox cases as of Saturday, the WHO said.

"We don't see it in the United States or in Europe -- and the number of cases that are being reported is definitely outside the level of normal for what we would see," McQuiston said.

A top UK health official told the BBC on Sunday that people should be aware of monkeypox -- but that the risk to the general population "remains extremely low at the moment."

"I think people need to be alert to it," said Susan Hopkins, chief medical adviser for the UK Health Security Agency.

"We really want clinicians to be alert to it and send the test if they're concerned."

Hopkins said based on reports from Africa, the UKHSA knows certain people are "much more at risk of severe disease, particularly immunosuppressed individuals or young children."

While there is "no direct vaccine for monkeypox," Hopkins said, "we are using a form of smallpox vaccine or third-generation smallpox vaccine that's safe on individuals who are contacts of cases."
