WHO changed the name of monkeypox to mpox
The use of racist, discriminatory and objectionable languages raised concerns
Both names will be used for about 1 year
Geneva. The World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday changed the name of monkeypox, the disease that wreaked havoc after the corona virus, to mpox. The organization says that when the outbreak of the disease started spreading all over the world, racist, discriminatory and offensive language was being used. The organization was informed about this and many countries also suggested to change its name, only then the organization has changed its name expressing concern. The World Health Organization said that both names would be used for about a year and then monkeypox would be phased out.
Monkeypox is so named because the virus was originally identified in 1958 in monkeys kept for research in Denmark. When it started spreading in Britain, there were many such cases in which monkeys were poisoned and killed, so Margaret Harris, spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, said, ‘Monkeypox can spread from animals to humans, but monkeys are not responsible for this. should go.’ The WHO then sought the public’s help in coming up with a new name, with a dedicated website where anyone could make suggestions.
Following consultations, WHO will begin using a new term for “#monkeypoxdisease:’#mpox,
Both names will be used simultaneously for one year while ‘monkeypox’ is phased out. https://t.co/VT9DAdYrGY pic.twitter.com/Ae6zgkefPI
