This number was reported in 42 member states in five WHO regions, along with one death reported in Nigeria.
WHO considered the risk globally to be moderate, considering that this is the first time that many cases and clusters of monkeypox have been reported simultaneously in many countries in widely disparate WHO geographic areas, and considering that mortality has remained low in the current outbreak.
These figures show an increase of 818 laboratory-confirmed cases since the previous report, released on June 10, when 1285 cases were reported.
