Is there a new global pandemic?

Here are the details about this pandemic
Monkeypox is a viral disease that belongs to a family of diseases characterized by the appearance of blisters on the skin and is widespread in Central and West Africa, where it was first discovered in 1958 and the first human infection was recorded in 1970.
The period of isolation is from 5 to 21 days and most often it is from 7 to 14 days.
Symptoms are identical to smallpox, most notably: high fever, headache, muscle aches, chills, and skin rash.
The discovery of the first case in Europe began on May 7, in the United Kingdom, of a person coming from Nigeria. On May 22, 92 cases were confirmed in 12 countries around the world, and there is reason to believe that this virus is less contagious than the emerging corona virus, so we should not expect a global pandemic.
However, it has become clear that the current strain of the virus is different from the one encountered before: it is now transmitted not only by breathing, but also by sexual contact.
In the most negative scenario, we can expect the outbreak of a new virus, which will be imposed on a world experiencing political and economic stability and may cause the most powerful crisis in modern human history.

However, it is too early to panic: we still have little information to draw conclusions about the extent of the disease and its potential for spread.
