The World Health Organization (WHO) is renaming monkeypox amid concerns that the name may be considered racist and might not accurately describe the origin of the virus.

“The prevailing perception in the international media and scientific literature is that [monkeypox virus] is endemic in people in some African countries.

However, it is well established that nearly all [monkeypox virus] outbreaks in Africa prior to the 2022 outbreak, have been the result of spillover from animals to humans and only rarely have there been reports of sustained human-to-human transmissions,” they said. .

There are also concerns about whether the name of the virus accurately describes the origin of the monkeypox.
