Factbox: Mpox cases and deaths around the world

Dec 21 (Reuters) - Around 100 countries where mpox is not endemic have reported outbreaks of the viral disease, which the World Health Organization has declared a global health emergency.

Confirmed cases have reached 83,339 globally this year, with the majority of them reported in non-endemic countries.

The WHO said on Nov. 28 it would start using a new preferred term, 'mpox', as a synonym for monkeypox and urged others to follow suit after receiving complaints that the current name for the disease was racist and stigmatising.

Below is a list of mpox cases and related deaths reported by non-endemic countries and regions.



The UK tally combines confirmed and highly probable cases.



Aruba's and Curacao's cases are discounted from those of the Netherlands.

Guadeloupe's, Martinique's, Saint Martin's, Mayotte's, Reunion's and New Caledonia's cases are discounted from those of France.

Puerto Rico's and Guam's cases are discounted from those of the United States.

The number of cases in the United States was revised down from 29,762 to 29,528 on Dec 21.
