A dog has been infected with monkeypox for the first time in the world. The dog’s owner was previously infected with monkeypox.

This information was reported by the BBC with reference to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Health experts recommend isolation from other animals if infected with monkeypox. Also, it is requested to keep the garbage of infected animals in a safe place so that other animals do not get infected with monkeypox.

However, a health expert said there was no evidence that the infected dog had transmitted monkeypox to any other animal.

So far, about 35,000 people have been infected with monkeypox in the world. Most of these victims are citizens of Europe and North and South America. Besides, 12 people have died due to the virus.

In July last year, monkeypox was declared a global health emergency by the WHO.
