Monkeypox is a viral disease that commonly occurs in monkeys and can be transmitted to humans through contact with the blood or other bodily fluids of infected animals. Currently, there is no vaccine for this disease, and efforts are made to control its spread through the smallpox vaccine.

Monkeypox was first observed in humans in 1970 in the Congo, and it has since spread widely in sub-Saharan Africa. Thailand had been relatively safe from this disease due to its geography, but in recent years, it has seen an increase in cases of monkeypox, with experts attributing this to people traveling to or doing business in countries with infected monkeys.

According to a recent statement from the Thai Ministry of Health, there have been 25 new cases of monkeypox reported in Thailand, with one patient having died. The fatality rate for monkeypox ranges from 1 to 10 percent, with most people recovering from the disease naturally.
