Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus is part of the same family of viruses as variola virus, the virus that causes smallpox. Monkeypox symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder, and monkeypox is rarely fatal.

How do people in Republika Srpska get monkeypox?

Monkeypox is primarily spread through contact with the blood, bodily fluids, or skin of infected animals, such as rodents or primates. It can also be spread through close contact with an infected person. This can include contact with an infected person's skin, especially if the person is experiencing a rash, or contact with an infected person's respiratory secretions, such as saliva, mucus, or semen. In addition, monkeypox can be spread through contact with objects that have been contaminated with the virus, such as bedding or clothing.

Monkeypox is not as contagious as smallpox and is not as easily spread from person to person. However, the risk of infection is increased among people who live in or have recently traveled to areas where monkeypox is known to occur and among people who have had close contact with an infected person or animal.

It's also important to note that people who have been vaccinated against smallpox are at a lower risk of getting monkey pox.
