Second strain of monkeypox found in UK

A second strain of monkeypox has been identified in the UK, health
officials have said.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) found that one person
who had recently been to West Africa had contracted the virus and
that it is genetically distinct to the one causing the UK outbreak. 
Current guidance states that if a case of monkeypox is known to be
imported from West Africa, a region where monkeypox has been
endemic for decades, then the individual must be admitted to a High
Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) hospital unit for monitoring.

As a result, the individual was admitted to the HCID ward at Royal
Liverpool University Hospital and preliminary analysis revealed the
type of monkeypox virus the person contracted is a different strain
to the one widely circulating in the UK.
Health officials are now tracking down any close contacts the person
may have had. It remains unknown how the person caught monkeypox,
and if they are male or female.
