According to “OurWorldInData” there have been 9 monkeypox virus deaths so far. The WHO said there were 5 in Africa. I see 4. I have already noted that India had a monkeypox death recently. So Spain seems to be the first “rich/western” country to have had a monkeypox virus death, 2 in fact.
The number of confirmed cases is now above 23,000, and should climb towards 20 million worldwide by Christmas.
