While clinically less severe than smallpox, monkeypox is a viral disease caused by the monkeypox virus. It has symptoms that are comparable to those of smallpox. Monkeypox (also called MPX, Mpox) has replaced smallpox as the most significant orthopoxviral for public health since smallpox was eradicated globally in 1980 and smallpox vaccinations were subsequently discontinued.
