Washington: The cases of monkeypox are continuously increasing in the world. This virus has also reached in America. But in the meantime, a worrying news has come to the fore. There are two genetically different variants of monkeypox found in America. This has been confirmed by data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Although the CDC has not yet investigated all 22 cases.

The same virus has been seen in two people, similar to the virus of monkeypox found in a Texas man who traveled to Nigeria in 2021. This includes a woman from Florida and a man who had recently traveled to Africa. In the other 20 cases, some have genetic codes similar to the infection spread in Europe. The genetic codes of the remaining cases are similar to the virus spread in a woman who traveled to Nigeria in 2021.

Difficult to trace the cause of origin
Jennifer McQuiston, deputy director of the CDC’s Pathology Division, said the viruses are similar to each other, but their genetic analysis suggests they are not related. McQuiston says that this new information suggests that there are two reasons for monkeypox to come to America rather than one. This will make it difficult to understand the reason for its origin. He further said that it is believed that in the last few years, two types of virus will spread from animals to humans in Nigeria and then from humans to humans.

The virus was spreading without knowing it?
With the new information, the question is also arising that for how long has the monkeypox virus spread outside Africa and how contagious it is so far? According to a report, since May last year, 900 cases of monkeypox were reported all over the world. Earlier in 2003, there were 47 cases in the US. The WHO says that it is possible that the virus was spreading in the world for some time without being detected.
