The World Health Organization’s emergency committee on monkeypox will meet next Thursday to determine what measures to take against the current outbreak of the disease, the agency said today.

The committee will essentially decide the severity of the resurgence of monkeypox cases and whether to designate it as a “public health emergency,” the agency’s highest alert level.

It will meet for the second time, ignoring the possibility of raising the alert level at its previous meeting on June 23.

The number of confirmed cases around the world has increased sharply since then, exceeding 10,000 in more than 60 countries, with Europe being the worst-affected region.

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has repeatedly expressed concern about the spread of the disease outside of endemic countries and urged member states to take appropriate measures to reduce infections.
