The first human case of monkeypox was recorded in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since then, monkeypox has been reported in humans in other central and western African countries. In 2022, an unusual amount of monkeypox cases around the world have prompted concern and interest from health officials and the public.
This site is dedicated to tracking the spread of the 2022 monkeypox virus disease outbreak, and is updated every few hours. You can view the countries listing page for a more detailed breakdown.
