Joseph Eisenberg, a U-M School of Public Health epidemiology professor, and Andrew Brouwer, an epidemiology assistant research scientist, discuss in a Q&A Monkeypox and its implications. Eisenberg and Brouwer note that it is the next pandemic but is less infectious as it affects a specific risk group that involves very close intimate contact. The faculty experts explain that it is similar to smallpox, but this new strain is spreading rapidly and globally through person-to-person contact, though it is less effective in spreading compared to COVID-19. They further highlight the symptoms, other zoonotic diseases, and the impact of climate change on these diseases.
