How is mpox virus spread? How transmissible is it?



Transmission occurs when a person comes into close contact with the virus through an infected animal, infected person or contaminated environment. Animal-to-human transmission may occur by a bite or scratch from an infected animal, bush meat preparation, or direct contact with the blood, body fluids, or skin or mucosal lesions of infected animals. Human-to-human transmission can occur via exposure to respiratory droplets or direct physical contact with the blood, body fluid or lesion material from infected individual or contaminated materials.
