To tackle the stigma & racism associated with the Monkeypox disease, the World Health Organisation (WHO) is working on the terminology of the Monkey-pox disease & also considering & conducting the suggestions from the world health associates.

WHO Director-General Tedros hints at renaming monkeypox virus:

WHO Director-General Tedros hinted at renaming monkeypox virus as this will reduce the emerging problems based on racism or social conduct differences in humans.WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Tuesday that the organisation is working with partners and experts around the world on renaming the monkeypox virus.

Elaborating on this nomenclature, he also noted that the monkeypox virus belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus in the Poxviridae family. The Orthopoxvirus genus includes the variola virus that causes chickenpox, the one used in the smallpox vaccine, and the cowpox virus. At the same time, he said that the WHO also indicated the announcement about the new names as soon as possible.

WHO aims to consult experts from 11 countries on appropriate names:

The move comes after nearly 30 scientists from 11 countries, in a preprint posted to virological.org last week, stressed the need to cut down on "discriminatory" language that separates groups of monkey viruses in "West Africa and the Congo Basin". and also advocated renaming the virus.

Suggestion by experts:

In the paper, the scientist suggested classifying the virus broadly as "hMPXV" with its diversity denoted by neutral lineages such as A, A.1, A.1.1, B.1.

72 died in south african countries while no death in non-endemic countries:

About eight African countries, including Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo and Liberia, where monkeypox is endemic, have reported 1,536 suspected cases and 59 confirmed cases. While no deaths have been reported to date from the non-endemic countries, the endemic African countries have recorded 72 deaths from monkeypox from January till June first week.

Public health emergency of international concern:

Meanwhile, the WHO has also convened a meeting on June 23 to assess whether the current monkeypox outbreak outside of the traditional endemic areas in Africa has already turned into a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).

Before this, nomenclature based changes have took place even at the time of Corona:

Such changes have been made in the past even before this, that the name of the virus with the geographical name of the virus and diseases has been changed.Earlier during the coronavirus pandemic, people around the world referred to the COVID virus as the China or Wuhan virus, and again the emergence of a COVID strain in South Africa led to a halt in travelling which pressured the WHO immediately for considering name changes of SARS-CoV- 2.
