What’s the difference between Monkeypox and Chickenpox?

Published

on

Skin rashes and fever are mutual symptoms in both the viruses and that’s lead to confusion

Doctors say there is a way to tell the difference

Monkeypox is a virus that’s been transmitted to humans from animals.

And has similar symptoms to smallpox, but medical experts say it is less severe.  

In regards to the differences in ChickenPox and Monkeypox symptoms.

Speaking to India TV, Dr Satish Koul from the Memorial Research Institute said, “In monkeypox, the lesions are bigger than chickenpox. In monkeypox, the lesions are seen on palms and soles. In chickenpox, lesions are self limiting after seven to eight days but not in monkeypox.”

Nonetheless it is always better to consult a doctor to put all doubts to rest.

The World Health Organization has declared monkeypox a global health emergency

And it is continuing to spread around the world.

According to The Guardian,

“All the evidence suggests that the outbreak is highly concentrated among men who have sex with men, and the virus is overwhelmingly transmitted through sexual contact. But even as that has become abundantly clear, there has still been a curious reticence in much of the public health messaging about saying so.”

And this criticism continues to be echoed, especially when it comes to the US Federal response to the outbreak.

As the world comes out of the COVID 19 pandemic, the last thing anyone wants is to re-enter it.

And that’s why we must all take our precautions.

The feathery friend was suffering from malnutrition when it was found in Madison Square Park.

In a statement, the Wild Bird Fund says they should never be dyed because of risks like starvation and even death.

It went on to say the “poor bird has it bad enough unable to find food in the wild, fly well or escape predators.”

“But being a bright, unusual colour makes him even more of a target.”
