Health officials urge calm as more monkeypox cases emerge in Canada

From Global News.

Concerns are growing about the global outbreak of the monkeypox virus, as more cases are confirmed in Canada.

The disease is generally found in parts of central and West Africa and can sometimes cause infections in people after exposure to infected animals or contaminated materials.

Despite the rise in cases, Canadian health authorities still say the risk of transmission in social settings is low, since close and prolonged contact is required.

Dan Spector looks at where infections are being detected, the push for vaccinations, and how health experts are urging calm.
