Will WHO’s Declaration on Monkeypox Impede Travel?

Read Time:59 Seconds

July 24. On Saturday, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared monkeypox a public health emergency of international concern, immediately stirring memories of early 2020 when the coronavirus began to engulf the world and became a global pandemic.

Among the many fears and questions now is, will the severity of monkeypox impede travel as it did two-and-a-half years ago when COVIV-19 brought the entire industry to its knees?

Travel is only now beginning to recover from COVID and is still not all the way back to 2019 levels. In fact, in many ways, the pandemic is still affection travel.

At this time, it’s a difficult question to answer. The impact probably lies somewhere between the public’s perception of dealing with yet another virus. Are they tired of being cooped up and living by protocols and restrictions, which the pent-up demand for travel right now seems to suggest is the biggest answer? Or do they respect the opinions of a group of worldwide doctors and immunologists?

Monkeypox is considered contagious, meaning that anyone with the virus should avoid travel and the potential to spread it to others.
