The briefs will focus on the essential elements of clinical trials, patient management, and vaccination, infection prevention and control, risk communication and community engagement. Lastly, there will be guidelines for managing the infodemic as well.

On monkeypox, “we are continuing to see a downward trend in Europe.”, he said.

There are some indications that the cases in America may be declining. While it would be hard to conclusively say it’s decreased in the future also, Ghebreyesus said they were still reporting a decline in incidents last week.

The World Health Organization reports that at least 52,997 people have been infected with the monkeypox virus.
