What is monkeypox, the viral infection that has been recently detected across several countries like the U.S., U.K., Portugal and now possibly Canada? Where does it come from and how contagious is it? What are the symptoms and how does it spread?

Jimmy Whitworth, a professor of international public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine answers these questions, discussing the possible reasons for the outbreak and the protection against it.
