Spain reports second monkeypox-related death in Europe



Spain’s second monkeypox-related death was reported on Saturday. This is Europe’s third and only death from the disease. It also marks the third victim outside Africa in the current outbreak.

Spain’s first monkeypox death was reported on Friday, just days after Brazil reported the first deaths from the current epidemic.

According to a World Health Organization report, only five deaths had been reported as of July 22. They all occurred in Africa. The WHO declared the rapidly spreading epidemic, at its highest level, a global emergency of public health on Saturday.

The latest Spanish Health Ministry report states that 4,298 cases have been confirmed in Spain. It reported that 120 of the 3,750 patients it had data on had been admitted to hospital and two had died.

Local media reported that the first death occurred in the northeastern Valencia region. It was due to encephalitis, a condition that causes inflammation and brain swelling.
