A sudden increase in human monkeypox infections that began in non-endemic nations in May 2022 has sparked concerns about a new global infectious threat. The number of people who are vulnerable to infection with MPXV is growing worldwide. On July 23, 2022, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the recent outbreaks of monkeypox (MPX), an infectious sickness caused by the monkeypox virus (MPXV), have been declared a global public health emergency. As of November 26, 2022, there have been 80.850 confirmed cases and 55 deaths across 110 countries and territories. The present report highlights recommendations for prevention, vaccination, management, and infection control of the probable monkeypox outbreak.
