British officials: 4 men infected with ‘rare’ monkeypox in London | app

LONDON (AP) — British health authorities say they have identified four “rare and unusual” cases of monkeypox among men who appear to have been infected in London and had no history of travel to African countries where the disease smallpox type is endemic.

In a statement on Monday, Britain’s Health Security Agency said an investigation had been launched into how the men became infected and whether they had any links to each other. Three of the men are in London and one in the North East of England. All men identify as gay, bisexual or men who have sex with men.
