Monkeypox is a zoonotic viral infectious disease that has been predominantly reported in the central and west Africa. A recent outbreak of monkeypox has been reported in the month of May 2022 and since then the outbreak has been reported in 28 nations. As the infection has been reported in non-endemic nations, there is an indispensable need to strengthen the surveillance, preparedness, and outbreak response-related actions to monitor the spread of the infection. To conclude, the 2022 outbreak of monkeypox in non-endemic nations is an eye-opener for public health authorities to be vigilant, and strengthen prevention and control activities.
