The Daily Mail is reporting…

Monkeypox has been detected in Portugal and Spain in what could be the first global outbreak of the rare disease.

Six people in Portugal have tested positive and more than a dozen more are under investigation, health officials there said today.

Spain is monitoring eight people who it believes could be infected, with tests being carried out to confirm the virus.

The latest cases are all among men, most of whom are ‘young’, but it is not yet clear how they caught the virus.

Until now, monkeypox cases were confined to travellers and their relatives returning from western and central Africa, where the virus is endemic.

But experts now fear it is spreading in the community for the first time, after seven Britons were diagnosed in the past fortnight.

Six of them appear to have been infected in the UK and the majority are not linked, which suggests more cases are going undetected.

Four of the British cases are gay or bisexual men, and officials say the pattern of transmission is ‘highly suggestive of spread in sexual networks’. 

Dr Simon Clarke, a microbiologist at the University of Reading, told MailOnline he suspects UK case numbers are already ‘in the tens’.

But he insisted the disease will not spread like Covid, adding: ‘I would be surprised if we ever got to more than 100 cases [in Britain]’.
