Monkeypox is an infectious disease caused by the monkeypox virus that can occur in certain animals as well as human beings.

Symptoms begin with fever, headache, muscle pains, swollen lymph nodes, and feeling tired. This is followed by a rash that forms blisters and crusts over. The time from exposure to onset of symptoms is around 10 days. The duration of symptoms is typically two to four weeks.

New York health officials are investigating a potential case of monkeypox after a patient tested positive for the family of viruses associated with the rare illness.
