The World Health Organization has confirmed 80 cases of monkeypox with recent outbreaks reported in 11 countries.

The global health agency, in a statement Friday, said the outbreaks are unusual because they are occurring in countries where the virus is not endemic. The WHO said more monkeypox cases will likely be reported in the coming days as surveillance expands.

“WHO is working with the affected countries and others to expand disease surveillance to find and support people who may be affected, and to provide guidance on how to manage the disease,” the global health agency said.
