In brief: Yes

Human monkeypox is a viral disease that occurs primarily in remote villages of central and west africa near tropical rainforests where there is frequent contact with infected animals.
Usually transmitted to humans from rodents, pets, and primates through contact with the animal's blood or through a bite. Human monkeypox can be difficult to distinguish clinically from smallpox or chickenpox.
