Monkeypox Disease

Monkeypox is a viral zoonosis (infections transmitted from animals to humans), caused by a virus from the same family as smallpox. It’s called monkeypox because it was first discovered in 1958 in lab monkeys used for research. Monkeypox had been most common in Central and West Africa, close to tropical rainforests, though it was also seen in other countries in a small scales. In May 2022, health officials began reporting an outbreak of the monkeypox in locations outside of Africa.

Vega Tek Hub has provided this educational animation video presented on the attached YouTube link. Monkeypox virus is a double-stranded DNA virus. Some of the animal species that can become a reservoir for monkeypox virus include rodents such as rats, squirrels, and primates. Animal to human transmission has occurred from direct contact with the infected animal’s blood, bodily fluids, skin or mucosal lesions, or possibly from eating inadequately cooked infected meat. Human to human transmission can result from contact with respiratory secretions, or skin lesions of an infected person. The Vega Tek Hub animation team explores all the details using modern graphic methods for viewers.


The interval from infection to onset of symptoms (incubation period) usually takes between 1 to 2 weeks. Symptoms of Monkey pox initially include fever, body and muscle pain, fatigue and extreme lack of energy, swelling of the lymph nodes, and occasionally sore throat and cough. The rash appears 1-3 days after the onset of fever. The rash tends to be more concentrated on the face, arms, palms, legs and soles and less commonly on the trunk. It can also effect the oral mucosa, genitalia and the conjunctiva of the eye. The lesions start as small flat based inflammed macules which then become raised and filled with liquid. Eventually the lesions will crust, dry out and fall off. Monkeypox lesions are contagious even after they crust. Complications of Monkey pox can include infection in the lungs, blood, eyes, or brain.

As presented in our 2d video animation, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is the preferred laboratory test to diagnose monkeypox. Vaccination against monkey pox as well as smallpox can be effective in preventing monkeypox or lower the severity of the symptoms. An antiviral medication known as Tecovirimat received license by the European Medicines Agency for monkeypox in 2022.


Reducing exposure and timely diagnosis of the disease are the main prevention strategies for monkey pox. By sharing this video with your friends and family raise awareness of risk factors and symptoms of monkeypox and contribute to public education and help to reduce monkeypox exposures.
