In brief: Similar to Smallpox
Caused by an orthopoxvirus, monkey pox ia a rare disease mostly in central and west africa.
Transmitted by the bite of an infected animal or by person-to-person spread, it is less contagious than small pox. The symptoms are fever, headache, backache, muscle aches, swollen lymph nodes, and exhaustion. A rash follows one to three days later.
