The idiom, "it never rains, but it pours" explains how one difficult situation tends to quickly follow another. Just as COVID-19 is being brought under control around the world, another potential threat is rearing its ugly head. The WHO has reported 120 worldwide cases of the rare monkeypox virus. It has been detected across Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia. The WHO said it could spread further in the coming months. A WHO spokesperson said: "As we enter the summer season, with mass gatherings, festivals and parties, I am concerned that transmission could accelerate".
