As of 22 June, WHO has reported over 3400 confirmed cases of monkeypox in 2022. Cases have been reported from 50 countries, with a majority being reported from non-endemic countries. The European region accounts for 86% of the reported cases and 11% of the cases have been detected in the Americas.

The latest WHO situational report is available here.

WHO continues to closely monitor the situation, and support international coordination and information sharing with Member States and partners. Clinical and public health incident response have been activated by Member States to coordinate comprehensive case finding, contact tracing, laboratory investigation, isolation, clinical management and implementation of infection and prevention and control measures.

IMO and the ICS have published circulars to raise awareness and give guidance. These are available at the bottom of this page.

We urge members and ship staff to remain vigilant and follow the advice from WHO.
