The World Health Organization has called for “urgent and coordinated” action to control a rising monkey flu outbreak in Europe.

Since early May, infections have increased in areas outside West and Central Africa, where the virus has spread.

Hans Kluk, the World Health Organization’s director for Europe, expressed concern that cases had tripled in the past two weeks, with more than 4,500 infections recorded.

The World Health Organization recently said that monkeypox is no longer considered a global health emergency, but plans to review its status.
