Monkeypox virus could mutate faster than it exists

The monkeypox virus may have begun to mutate faster than it originated. This is stated in the study of scientists.

According to experts, we are talking about forecasts for the spread of the virus from person to person.

“[The outbreak] causes a virus that represents many more mutations than we could expect from this type of virus,” the experts specify.

It is also noted that the fact of a large number of mutations in the smallpox virus in people of the public year was unexpected.

The group managed to establish about 50 mutations.

Earlier, the World Health Organization named the total identified cases of monkeypox in the world. Since the beginning of 2022, more than 3.2 thousand confirmed cases of infection have been identified.
