From May 2022, there was an outbreak of Mpox ("monkeypox") mainly in sexual networks of men who have sex with men. Since autumn 2022, only a few cases have been reported in Germany. Infections are still possible, even when travelling.
Mpox fortunately usually heals on its own, but can have very unpleasant and painful symptoms. The best protection is vaccination. It is free of charge and also possible for people without an insurance card.
