Belgium quarantines monkey line
Belgium becomes the first country to introduce mandatory quarantine for the monkey line.
"Anyone who tests positive for the virus should be isolated for 21 days as doctors warn of a 'significant increase'," writes the Daily Mail.
The disease, which was first found in monkeys, can be transmitted from person to person through close physical contact as well as sexual intercourse, and is caused by the monkey pox virus.
In addition to the rapidly spreading disease, doctors are taking preventative measures for affected patients and the people who care for them by vaccinating them with smallpox vaccines.
There have been no casualties from the Virus so far.
