monkeypox.Microbiologist Alexander Gintsburg, director of the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, shared his feelings with the state-run TASS news agency at the St.

Petersburg International Economic Forum.Gintsburg told the news outlet that “naturally, [a vaccine] is needed,” to control the virus, as it is rapidly spreading throughout the globe with no explanation.”Today, no one can explain why this infection, which was endemic to the African continent, is spreading across the globe for no apparent reason.

I am afraid that it cannot be explained by untraditional sexual contacts only. The number of confirmed cases is growing day after day,” Gintsburg told TASS.A significant proportion, but not all, of confirmed monekypox cases are among men who have sex with men.
