SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – Seminole County medical director Dr. Todd Husty explained on Monday what most of us are asking: What is monkeypox?

It comes after health officials in South Florida reported a presumptive case in Broward County Sunday, adding that the case is related to international travel and the patient is in isolation.

“Monkeypox is not a respiratory virus. It’s a virus that you get by close contact with other people,” Husty said.

Health leaders said monkeypox is an infection transmitted between animals and humans with most cases reported in Central and West Africa.

“It’s been in Africa for a while, but two things are happening. One is we are much more mobile than we used to be. People will go from Africa, to Europe, to the United States and around. So, therefore spreading communicable disease is much easier than it used to be and it happens more readily,” Husty said.

Symptoms to look out for include fever, headache, muscle and backaches, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion.

Health officials, however, stress monkeypox does not spread as easily as COVID-19 and is rarely fatal.

“This is nothing like COVID because COVID spreads (through the air) and this spreads by close contact. Touching people,  touching their bodily fluids, that kind of stuff.  Remember with COVID we were worried about exponential growth. This thing will not have exponential growth,” Husty said.
