Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection from exposure to the monkeypox virus and can spread from person to person through direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs, or body fluids. It also can be spread by respiratory secretions during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling, or sex. Anyone in close physical contact with a person with monkeypox can get it and should take steps to protect themselves.
