Outbreaks of endemic diseases such as monkeypox and Lassa fever or Ebola are becoming more persistent and frequentwarned the World Health Organization.

Three to five years used to pass between Ebola outbreaks; now, hopefully, three or five months go by. There is definitely an ecological pressure on the system,” said the Organization’s director of emergencies, Michael Ryan.

As climate change changes weather conditions, causing, for example, more droughts, animals and humans change their behaviorincluding food-seeking habits.

“Unfortunately, that ability to amplify that disease and move it within our communities is increasing, so Both the factors of appearance and amplification of the disease have increased“he added

More than 550 confirmed cases of monkeypox, from 30 non-endemic countries, have already been reported to WHO.

The WHO indicated that the sudden appearance of monkeypox in many countries at the same time suggests that an undetected transmission may have existed for some time.

Until now, most cases have been reported by sexual health clinics who have cared for men who have sex with other men.

The WHO insisted that anyone can be infected and urged affected countries to expand their surveillance to look for cases throughout society.
